    that "exponentially" is regularly used in ordinary conversation to refer in a vague, nonexact way to accelerating or nonlinear changes, don't you?

    The point is, things are changing rapidly, and the rapidity is speeding up. That's the takeaway for nonspecialists such as myself.

      true, but talking about future warming of the globe rising 'exponentially' is pretty dumb.
