Some segments of the evangelical community jumped on the "global warming" bandwagon and tried to ride it right into honorary membership in the Ruling Class. Their motive apparently was to get the right people to say wonderful things about them, and in turn give them the opportunity to boast about their new-found access to the corridors of power.
Only one problem. "Global warming" was and is not a problem; in fact, there has been no global warming since 1995, and today we read of snowfall — in September! — in Montana. Many climatologists on Kool-Aid free diets are predicting that we in fact may be headed toward decades of global cooling.
Eventually the truth becomes so evident that even the most ardent proponents of scientific quackery have to change their tune. And it is occurring again right before our very eyes. The fact-challenged left has abandoned the term "global warming" just after having convinced swathes of the evangelical community to adopt it.
