The british newspaper Guardian is officially changing the language with regard to climate change, choose to call instead of “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown.”

Editor-in-chief Katharine Viner advised the employees in an e-mail Friday that the phrase “climate change” should be avoided, because it “sounds rather passive and soft and not catching the real threat to humanity.

“We want to make sure that we are scientifically accurate and rooted in facts, while also clearly communicating with the readers on this very important issue,” Viner wrote.

The new guidelines also state that a person is skeptical about climate change should no longer be described as a “climate skeptic.” Instead, Viner writes, words such as “climate science denier” or “climate denier” should be applied.

“Increasingly, climate scientists and organisations of the UN at the Office are changing their terminology, and the use of stronger language to describe the situation we’re in,” she added in the e-mail.

The newspaper stresses that none of the original phrases and terms are formally prohibited is used in the reporting, “but you should think twice before they,” Viner wrote.

The Guardian’s editorial board also recently endorsed the Green New Deal, a radical proposal introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, that aims at a transformation of the AMERICAN economy in an effort to tackle climate change.

“Humanity will run out of limited global resources long before the US runs out of dollars. Britain should be something like Mrs. Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. And we need it now before it’s too late,” the newspaper wrote.
