ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The phrase “climate change” used to refer to what has been ongoing on planet Earth for the past 4 billion-plus years - namely, the periodic ice ages, both global and local warming and cooling, the four seasons, rain, snow, sleet, fog - you get the idea.

During a discussion about the cold weather, Diane Sawyer recently commented that she was concerned about climate change. Robert Gibbs, President Obama’s press secretary, responded similarly to a recent query about our cold weather - and said, with a straight face, that the record low temperatures were because of climate change.

Those who have been skeptical about anthropogenic global warming are mistakenly but perhaps deliberately referred to as “climate change deniers.” Now that it has been pretty much proved that carbon dioxide does not drive temperature and that it is great for plant life, is there a new conspiracy afoot, to accuse mankind of interfering with all of Mother Nature’s duties?
