In his latest attempt to undermine liberals and the previous Obama-era agenda, President Trump is eradicating a longtime phrase from his government in favor of a new alternative.
“Weather extremes,” is now that phrase, and “climate change” is out, according to officials at a USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) office, where they have told employees that the government has picked a new politically-correct phrase to describe how Americans now discuss what’s happening outside and long-term effects weather has on the planet.
In emails obtained by The Guardian, USDA officials reportedly told employees that they’re changing the conversation about climate change merely by changing the words they want us to use. “Climate change” is now “weather extremes,” and “climate change adaption” should now be called “resilience to weather.”
According to The Guardian’s report, Bianca Moebius-Clune, director of soil health for the Natural Resource Conservation, the new wording has nothing to do with changing procedures.
“We won’t change the modeling, just how we talk about it,” Moebius-Clune said in a staff email obtained by the publication.
An official within the USDA told reporters that the new direction was made in an effort to be more palatable to the Trump administration.
Jimmy Bramblett, NRCS’s deputy chief for programs, wrote to staff members, “It has become clear one of the previous administration’s priorities is not consistent with that of the incoming administration. Namely, that priority is climate change.”
Trump in July appointed Sam Clovis to be the USDA’s chief scientist. Clovis is a radio host and Air Force veteran who has been openly skeptical of the science behind the climate change theory.
Trump himself showed what he thought of climate change as an economic issue when he announced in June that the United States would be withdrawing from the Paris Accord climate agreement.
The agreement went into effect in November 2016 and addresses and analyzes greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to “combat climate change and adapt to its effects.”
At the time he pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord, Trump explained why, stating that it posed “disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories, and vastly diminished economic production.”
