The Church of Global Warming (a.k.a. the Church of CO2 Emissions), which has converted many a true believer over the past few decades, is facing a Reformation of sorts. Its pews are beginning to empty as snow-bound and shivering skeptics increasingly question its once-unchallenged doctrines. Still, many millions of worshipers remain faithful to the religion’s man-is-warming-the-earth theology - a belief system based on demonstrably fraudulent science and false prophecy. In the face of overwhelming scientific evidence that the earth is now cooling - not warming - why do so many cling to their Greenhouse God while denouncing CO2 as the planetary Satan? Why do they continue to recite chapter and verse from necromancer Al Gore’s Bible of Inconvenient Truth?
Have the good disciples not read or seen the mountain of real-world evidence that belies the pronouncements of the High Priests of Mother Earth? Are they so in thrall to their environmental gospel that they have abandon reason? The answer, regrettably, is yes. As Caroline May of BigGovernment.com notes, Warmist worship is rooted not in facts, but in “blind adherence to an unproven principle”:
“This unquestioned adherence to the theory of Global Warming bears all the markings of what traditionally would be recognized as a religion. Complete with sin (the emitting of carbon dioxide), scriptures (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessment reports), commandments (drive a Prius, use Compact Florescent Light bulbs, do not eat meat etc.), indulgences (carbon offsets), proselytism, prophets (Al Gore), priests (scientists), prophecy and apocalypse (floods, hurricanes, dead polar bears), infidels (Warming skeptics), and salvation (the halting of carbon emitting industrial progress) . . . .”
