The DOE’s vocabulary

The DOE’s vocabulary

“Work for DOE’s Office of International Climate and Clean Energy?” asks Nick Juliano. Then “don’t say ‘climate change’ anymore.” As Eric Wolff reports in POLITICO, the Energy Department climate office has banned the use of phrase “climate change.” Hannah Northey elaborates, “DOE workers warned climate references would trigger a ‘visceral reaction’ @SecretaryPerry and top staff. Serious?” Thom Dunn forecasts, “Next up: the Department of Education bans ‘books’ ‘knowledge’ and ‘words.’” Until then, Kevin W. Smith offers us these words: “When humanity clings to the last lands not ravaged by droughts & famine, at least @ENERGY’s vocabulary had refuge.”

Over at the EPA, Eric Lipton reports in The New York Times that the agency’s chief, Scott Pruitt, moved late on Wednesday to reject the scientific conclusion of the agency’s own chemical safety experts and chose not to ban an insecticide linked to mental problems with farmers and children. Why? Lipton explains: “Dow Chemical objected.”
