It's not just the mercury ya know

Time to rename (or more accurately name to begin with) the climate argument?

Leading scientist John Holdren says "global warming" is not the correct term
to use; he prefers "global disruption." "'Global warming' [is] misleading.
It implies something that's mainly about temperature, that's gradual, and
that's uniform across the planet," says Holdren. "In fact, temperature is
only one of the things that's changing. It's a sort of an index of the state
of the climate. The whole climate is changing: the winds, the ocean
currents, the storm patterns, snow packs, snowmelt, flooding, droughts.
Temperature is just a bit of it."

Sounds like a good idea to me. The goobers who point to a snowflake as evidence of the lack of global warming SO get on my last nerve.

And here is the rest of it.
