Democratic presidential candidates eschewed using the term climate change for more alarming phrases like “climate chaos” during Thursday night’s primary debate.

“Well, first of all, I don’t even call it climate change, it’s a climate crisis,” Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris said the debate.

“It represents an existential threat to us as a species,” Harris said. “And the fact that we have a president of the United States who has embraced science fiction over science fact will be to our collective peril.”

Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell used the phrase “climate chaos” in his closing debate remarks, echoing the language used by environmental activists pushing for aggressive global warming policies.

“This is the generation that will end climate chaos,” Swalwell said.

Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign tweeted out during the debate that “we must combat our climate crisis and take on the fossil fuel industry.”

Sanders, who also partook in the debate, supports the Green New Deal, which calls for a massive government takeover to “green” the economy.

Scientists use climate change or global warming to describe human impacts on global average temperature, not activist talking points.
