Energy and the environment: Global warming, climate change, er, climate volatility: 2012 and beyond



The italicization above is not the result of the editor's failure to remove “redlined” changes. Rather, it reflects the ongoing metamorphosis of environmental doomsayers to failed predictions about the earth's climate. Perhaps because global warming was not sufficiently scary to the public, or perhaps because every time former Vice President Al Gore would speak on the subject, his speech would be accompanied by heavy snow or record cold temperatures, global warming became “climate change.”
