NEW HAVEN

After a report from the Yale Center on Climate Change Communication showed that the term "climate change" elicits relatively little concern from the American public, leading scientists are recommending replacing it with a new term: "You will be burnt to a crisp and die."

Other terms under consideration by the scientists include "your cities will be ravaged by tsunamis and floods" and "earth will be a fiery hellhole incapable of supporting human life."

Scientists were generally supportive of the suggestions, with many favoring the term "your future will involve rowing a boat down a river of rotting corpses."
