Klimaliar

Sick of the words ‘climate change denier’? Here is a new one to describe the various merchants of denial, outright lies, feigned ignorance, deception and pedlars of falsehoods.

Klimaliar: A collective noun for all sorts of liars and deceivers about the state of the Earth and especially its climate.

From the Greek klima, surface of the earth, region and liar, one who lies.

The conjoining of klima and liar also creates the word ‘mal’ with meanings of bad, unpleasant and evil.

A klimaliar is all of these things. Do you know a klimaliar? Call them out from now on.
