“…the language used by some [US] federal employees around climate change. … terms that should be avoided by staff and those that should replace them. “Climate change” is in the “avoid” category, to be replaced by “weather extremes”. Instead of “climate change adaption”, staff are asked to use “resilience to weather extremes”.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/aug/07/usda-climate-change-language-censorship-emails

“Evidence” is to be replaced by “fake news”, “science” is to be replaced by “Chinese conspiracy”, and “experts” should not be used, but instead “communist libertarians.”
