to play PC games with names.
As of last week, the U.S. Navy is dropping all job titles that include the word “man.” A chief yeoman will become just a chief. “Fire Controlmen” will become nondescript “Petty Officers.” To avoid insult, “sailors will no longer be identified by their job title,” says the Navy Times; the titles “airman, fireman, constructionman and hospitalman” will be “replaced by job codes”; “B320” or “B450” or some other colorless non-word.
All this because no one has told Navy secretary, Ray Mabus, that the suffix “man” does not necessarily mean male.
I'm sure he knows; he doesn't care. Apparently this is more important than the actual PROBLEMS the Navy has. And the Marines, don't forget he's been playing the same games there, too.
There've been surveys showing people aren't holding Globular Warmering/Climate Changing the huge problem the Greenies want it to be seen as, and they're getting a bit desperate.
You may not have noticed, but 2016 was the hottest year for over 100,000 years. At least this was the claim reported last week by The Guardian, under the headline “Planet at its hottest for 115,000 years thanks fo climate change, experts say”.
The “experts” in question are a bunch of US scientists led by James Hansen, the former Nasa employee who did so much to set the great global warming scare on its way in 1988. And of course such a claim could only be made by ignoring all the evidence that the earth was actually hotter than today during the Mediaeval Warm Period, less than 1,000 years ago, and even more so during the thousands of years of the Holocene Optimum, following its emergence from the last ice age 10,000 years ago.
Now those “100 months” are up, it has prompted the diligent Paul
Homewood to publish on his website, Not A Lot of People Know That, a set
of graphs meticulously compiled from official data. The show what has
actually happened to the earth’s climate in these past eight years.
Despite the 2016 El Nino spike, now rapidly declining, satellite
measurements still show that the trend in global temperatures has not
risen for 18 years.
