The Agricultural Department recently released some emails advising its employees to use the term "Weather Extremes" instead of "Climate Change", "resilience to weather extremes" instead of "climate change adaptation", etc. The phrase replacements seem to diminish the severity of climate change, making it seem like some bad weather. The term, "weather extremes" also makes any consequences of climate change, like more frequent flooding, appear as an "extreme" instead of the norm it's actually becoming. What are your thoughts on this?
