I'm not going to get into the debate of global warming, I'm just going to talk about the term itself.
Think about it. It sounds kind of nice, doesn't it? Say it real slow... GLOOOOBBBAAAL WAARRRMMMMMING. It makes me feel all orangy warm and cozy. Actually, on frigid days I feel like unloading a couple of aerosol cans on mother nature to open up the ozone a bit and get me some of that warmin'.
If we want people to take it seriously and realize that it's a problem, it needs a name with some bite like, Global incineration or Earth grizzlean
In the new world, global warming will be replaced with Beelzebubs BBQ . (or reasonable facsimile.)
AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
