Memo to Staff: Eliminating Cl***** Ch****

Also, please delete all references to global w***ing.


To: All Department Staff

From: The Secretary

Re: Eliminating Cl***** Ch****


As you know, it is this Administration’s policy to eliminate all references to Cl***** Ch**** from government documents. This policy has been unevenly implemented, but I have informed the President that we are adopting a zero-tolerance approach.

All use of the “double-c term” must now cease. This includes acronyms such as GCC or references to global w***ing. Disciplinary action will be taken against any employee violating this policy.

Unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary to refer to long-term trends in temperature or precipitation, if only because of the demands of certain left-wing judges. Such discussion should be avoided where possible. When avoidance is impossible, however, the preferred term is World-Wide Weather Averages and Variance Evolution, or WWWA-VE. For example, predictions of increases in average temperature over time may be discussed in this rubric. Under no circumstances should you revert to the Cl***** Ch**** or GCC terminology.

Use of the improved terminology is essential to avoid offense to sensitive audiences or encouragement to pro-regulatory zealots. The improved terminology will avoid these harmful effects.

This directive is effective immediately. Please use global search-and-replace to correct all existing documents. Questions may be directed to the Assistant Secretary for Policy.

As you know, confidentiality is a core responsibility of all employees.  Leaks of this memo will be severely punished.

/s/ The Secretary

  2. BREAKING: California judge tosses global warming lawsuit against oil companies
    Anthony Watt June 25, 2018

    Judge Alsup just a few moments ago issued his Opinion and Order shutting down this ridiculous litigation against B.P., Chevron, and others.

    He made it easy on himself by asserting several times that it is established, and “both sides” agree, that Global Warming is real, serious, and anthropogenic.

    But that, he said, is irrelevant because the California government entities’ Nuisance theory is legally just plain crazy.
