Greenpeace on thin ice

        The thick winter ice on the Baltic also is part of "climate change"

In an article titled "Into thin ice", Greenpeace Nordic´s "ocean campaigner" Frida Bengtsson reveals why Greenpeace switched from global warming to "climate change":

At Greenpeace, one of the reasons we use the phrase “climate change” and try to stay away from “global warming”, is that the changes are not happening in unison across the world. Climate change can mean colder winters in parts of Europe, increased temperatures in sub-saharan Africa and more floods in other parts of the world.

What Bengtsson really means is:

Because there has not been any real warming in over ten years, Greenpeace decided to start using the phrase "climate change" instead. "Climate change" comes in very handy, because it can be used for all imaginable types of weather events, e.g. colder winters in Europe, temperature increases in sub-saharan Africa or floods in other parts of the world. Thus Greenpeace is in a position to further mislead people and continue its scaremongering and fundraising, even if the actual warming has stopped.
