ClimaTautologists

Climate is always changing, and weather events always occur. To say that a given weather event is consistent with climate change is true and also meaningless. The term in logic is Tautology:
a. a compound propositional form all of whose instances are true, as “A or not A.”
b. an instance of such a form, as “This candidate will win or will not win.”
Climatologists who associate a weather event with climate change are properly known as "climaTautologists".
