California’s been a leader in clean energy for years; our higher standards for fuel efficiency helped raise standards nationwide and spurred the federal government to enact higher standards in 2015. Now the current administration has not only proposed repealing those higher standards, but on September 18th the administration canceled the waiver under which California’s had higher standards since the 1970s.

We need new terms. In line with suggestions from Greta Thunberg and the new writers’ guidelines at the Guardian, this column will no longer use the terms “climate change” or “global warming.” Instead, I will use terms that really describe the situation: “climate crisis, climate emergency, climate breakdown, and global hotting.” We’re way past the point where we can talk about what’s happening to the climate in incremental terms. There’s no middle ground anymore.
