In reaction to the nerfed politically correct terminology currently in use (climate change vs. global warming) to describe the measured rise in average global temperature and it's positive derivatives over the last century, I propose a new term to replace "climate change": "Global Incineration".
Those who adopt this new terminology will be demonstrating that they are not embarrassed to admit to the reality of the temperature increase and its acceleration. We will unabashedly be proclaiming ourselves to be fearless soldiers fighting against the evil forces trying to make war on reality.
Although we will likely be accused of being inappropriate harbingers of doom, (Chicken Little Syndrome), we will calmly and resolutely sit back and enjoy the fray all the while noting their steady romp toward "global ignition".
Once the planet has ignited, there will be no more need for "human meddling" in the project as we the faithful, who are one with the silicites, will smile as the firestorm makes its way towards all those "ugly bags of mostly water". As they all go wafting off into space, they will have a few seconds to contemplate the hilarity and entertainment they provided us in their unending quest to prove 0 = 1 (wrong = right). We of course will have long ago left the Cinder Earth behind on our green spaceships, dreaming of their Snowball Earth that didn't quite arrive in time for them.
