Why is the UK Guardian news source changing the language it uses about climate chang?

Excerpt:

"The Guardian has updated its style guide to introduce terms that more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world.

Instead of “climate change” the preferred terms are “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” and “global heating” is favoured over “global warming."

    Looks like the liberal wordsmiths have been hard at work trying to get the words to sound more alarming to get people to go along with them.. Kind of like a religion trying to convince people..

    RBGE delivers vital ‘nature-based solutions’ to the climate emergency, based around the principles of monitoring, minimising, and mitigating the impacts of global climate change.

    The climate emergency is now being felt across the world. According to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, human activities are estimated to have already caused approximately 1°C of global warming, and this is likely to reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052.

    They keep "adjusting' the terminology in an attempt to get the

    "appropriate"  response...... scaring the masses into global communism (i.e. giving a central government more power over you).

    *** We have seen this from liberals before. Nobody "cared" about saving the Jungles or Swamps so the names were changed to "Rain Forests" and "Wetlands" which feel more P.C.
