Battle of Bad Words

“Global warming denier” was ranked as the second most politically incorrect phrase in 2006 by Global Language Monitor, a non-profit that studies word usage. According to the announcement of the rankings, some people even compare global warming deniers to Holocaust deniers.

Yet Climate Progress doesn’t view the term as “politically incorrect” — not when we have an administration that tries to stop its scientists from using the words “Kyoto” and “climate change.” So we will keep using the term as long as the Deniers keep up their despicable disinformation campaign.
