Schwarzenegger: ‘No One Gives a S**t’ About Climate Change
Climate crusader Arnold Schwarzenegger is urging a rebranding of global warming as “pollution” to generate more intense fear among the general population.
“As long as they keep talking about global climate change, they are not gonna go anywhere,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview this week on CBS’ Sunday Morning. “Cause no one gives a shit about that.”
“So my thing is, let’s go and rephrase this and communicate differently about it and really tell people — we’re talking about pollution. Pollution creates climate change, and pollution kills,” the actor and former California governor added.
Schwarzenegger is not the first to spot the need to intensify climate change rhetoric if people are going to be to frightened into action.

In 2019, for instance, the Guardian newspaper, the UK’s flagship of climate alarmism, announced it was updating its official in-house style guide to heat up its climate change rhetoric, adopting language meant to scare readers and motivate them to action.
“Instead of ‘climate change’ the preferred terms are ‘climate emergency, crisis or breakdown’ and ‘global heating’ is favoured over ‘global warming,’ although the original terms are not banned,” the paper stated at the time.
“The phrase ‘climate change,’ for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity,” said Katharine Viner, the Guardian’s editor-in-chief.
“Increasingly, climate scientists and organisations from the UN to the Met Office are changing their terminology, and using stronger language to describe the situation we’re in,” she said.
The newspaper also said that in the future it would no longer refer to “climate skeptics” but only “climate deniers.”
“You do not need a ‘denier’ to balance the debate,” the Guardian declared, and those who dare question the accepted climate groupthink deserve no place at the table.
For his part, the 75-year-old bodybuilder and governator Arnold Schwarzenegger has become a public voice about climate change through his role as the host of the Austrian World Summit, a global climate change conference.
“I’m on a mission to go and reduce greenhouse gases worldwide,” Schwarzenegger said, “because I’m into having a healthy body and a healthy Earth. That’s what I’m fighting for. And that’s my crusade.”
His proposal to rebrand climate change as “pollution” is a nonstarter…
…for the simple reason that carbon dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant and is not harmful to human health.
