That's not an elephant, it's just a large cat.

Goodbye climate change. Hello "weather extremes."

That's part of a list of language changes suggested in newly released emails among Agriculture Department officials as employees search for new ways to describe their work under the Trump administration.

An email obtained by CNN advised Natural Resources Conservation Service employees to avoid the term "Climate Change" and to instead use "Weather Extremes." Instead of "Climate Change Adaptation," the recommended terms include "Resilience to Weather Extremes." Rather than "reducing greenhouse gases," the emails suggest: "Build Soil Organic Matter, increase nutrient use efficiency."
