  •  "greenhouse gas" is a euphemism. (1+ / 0-)

    Greenhouses are nice and gas is only bad when one passes it in company.

    Pumping carbon out of the earth's crust into the air we breathe is something else. That's nasty, even if the particles of carbon are too small to see. There's a reason we exhale it with every breath. Carbon is not good for us. Humans need oxygen, also a gas, to live.

    Euphemisms serve a definite purpose. They make nasty things seem good. We should not use them. People employing euphemisms should raise a warning flag.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
