Climate Change is now the Climate Crisis

May 27, 2019 10:27 AM |

As the ramifications of ‘Climate Change’ are changing every day, it’s not just a ‘change’ in climate anymore. It is now a crisis. With ‘The Guardian’ updating its style-sheet last week, asking its reporters to refer to Climate Change as “climate crisis, emergency, or breakdown”, the world is taking the move as more than just symbolic. The newspaper also wishes to replace global warming with ‘global heating’.

With a million species at risk of extinction, and climate change getting more so obvious its high time to make some changes in the vocabulary. Moreover, this is not the first time such changes have been brought in by the media conglomerate. Back in April, The Guardian started off displaying a daily carbon dioxide numbers next to the weather forecast, to garner attention to the growing hazard.

The new language is a step in the right direction in terms of conveying the urgency of our present situation. That doesn’t mean a few word changes are going to undo all those decades of inaction and denial, or that they won’t spark controversy. But they are a step toward being real about the situation humanity is facing. It’s high time for some action!
