Sea Kittens Go Airborne

Proving once again that liberals try to frame the debate in such a way as to force compliance with political correctness, PETA some time ago started calling fish Sea Kittens so that children would hear the stories and guilt their parents into not eating fish. Vegans in the extreme. The logical next step? Vegetable rights proponents.

And as if that weren't enough, more proof, being offered up by the New York Times of all places, that some group, EcoAmerica, wants to again re-brand global warming to con people into belief and/or compliance.

The problem with global warming, some environmentalists believe, is “global warming.”

The term turns people off, fostering images of shaggy-haired liberals, economic sacrifice and complex scientific disputes, according to extensive polling and focus group sessions conducted by ecoAmerica, a nonprofit environmental marketing and messaging firm in Washington.

Instead of grim warnings about global warming, the firm advises, talk about “our deteriorating atmosphere.” Drop discussions of carbon dioxide and bring up “moving away from the dirty fuels of the past.” Don’t confuse people with cap and trade; use terms like “cap and cash back” or “pollution reduction refund.”

EcoAmerica has been conducting research for the last several years to find new ways to frame environmental issues and so build public support for climate change legislation and other initiatives.

Fighting the perpetual liberal onslaught is like a game of Space Invaders. They never stop coming and if you stop shooting down their continual advance, you lose.
