Was Global Cooling then Global Warming then Climate Change and now Climate Disruption.

If only they bring back Acid Rain then we can get a real scare going on.

When I was a kid, I always thought acid rain was going to be a bigger problem than it actually is...

If you can figure out what the next crisis should be, you too could become very rich.

I always thought that Acid Rain would have been a good Prince parody for Weird Al to do.

What a surprise, people commenting on the headline not the article or the report itself.

No wonder politcal campaigns and advertisers use tag lines and catch phrases so effectively. The sheep don't have an attention span that can follow much else.

Distribution or disruption? (Title vs 1st post.)

Maybe distributed disruption?

Distribution fits well
-give something out: to give out something to a number of people
-sell and dispatch goods: to sell and deliver merchandise, especially wholesale goods to a retailer

I read it before you posted it yesterday. But as smart as you are, you already knew that.

Well, you're not commenting even on the headline - just people's comments about it. Does that make you a sheep or an ass?

That would be because the headline is the story. Why would we want to comment on the report, much less the article ? Why did we even commission an 800 page report ? The debate is over. The science is settled. The screwing is coming.
800 fricken pages and not one solution, . Why ? 'Cause if you tell a lie enough times it will become true.

What a surprise, the article mentions "the report"

Even saying the report ...
 
quote

The report emphasizes how warming and its all-too-wild weather are changing daily lives, even using the phrase “climate disruption” as another way of saying global warming.

The article also mentions "the report" 15 times, with out a link to it. Sounds official, a "report". Reminds me of when was screwing off on a job and would carry a clip board around for a disguise, .
It snuck in only once the name of the report. Without really identifying it as "the report".
I noticed you didn't comment on the report. Here is your chance ! 840 pages of chance. WARNING : The pages are not numbered.
National Climate Assessment
It's pretty, and, look at the bottom. Lookie how many gooberment agencies are on board.

Which regime official said "there is no room in this administration for "climate change" deniers ? Look sheeple, we have a consensus of gooberment agencies, . Peer reviewed, .
Try to find "Response Strategies". It's a hoot.

I wish that $1 USD would be automatically deposited to my bank account every time that some life sciences challenged doofus (including some on this forum, although I will not list their forum names) has blithely offered "Hey, more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It will help farmers improve their crop yields. What's not to like?"

Maybe this:

 
quote
Climate change may cause floods, hurricanes, droughts and severe weather, but surely it will be good for plants, right? After all, the carbon dioxide that plants thrive on will build up in the atmosphere.

Actually, that doesn’t translate into better crops, researchers reported on Wednesday. While grains such as corn, wheat and rice might grow faster and even taller, they’ll carry fewer of the nutrients that people need, such as zinc and iron.

So even as people have more to eat, malnutrition in the poorest regions of the world may get worse, the experts reported in the journal Nature.

“This study is the first to resolve the question of whether rising carbon dioxide concentrations — which have been increasing steadily since the Industrial Revolution — threaten human nutrition,” said Samuel Myers of the Harvard School of Public Health, who led the study.

http://www.nbcnews.com/heal...ess-nutrition-n99481

At the end of this NBC News column, there is a reference to scientists eyeing the possibility of specially bred strains of food crops that would (theoretically) tolerate and thrive at elevated levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide without diminishing their dietary value in terms of these trace levels of vital nutrients (iron and zinc).

Seems like this is also a potential opportunity for new varieties of GMO food crops.
