Global Warming: Half Politics, Half Religion

by David Solway:

Far too many of our so-called climate “experts” are not so much dispassionate scientists or rational thinkers as they are pedestal theorists and instinctual religious crusaders, generally on the Left. It is no surprise that Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, invoked the Mayan moon goddess Ixchel to bless the Cancun Climate Summit in December 2010. President Obama’s former Special Advisor for Green Jobs, the neo-Marxist Van Jones, was one of these aggressive-sentimental votaries. Jones apparently enjoyed a divine revelation, enthusing in his 2008 book The Green Collar Economy, that Green jobs will enable us to “heal the land and repair the soul.” Carbon taxes now resemble the traffic in Indulgences during the medieval era as energy sinners buy absolution from a profiteering clergy.

  1. You are so right. You’re the first person I’ve seen on the web who thinks that climate alarmism is a religion. Its about time this truth started to sink in with people.

    Alarmism has ;
    a god (mother earth)
    an organization (UN IPCC)
    a bible (IPCC AR4 Report)
    preachers (climate scientists, Al Gore)
    a devil (CO2)
    sinful behavior (carbon emissions)
    sinners (humanity)
    fear of future apocolypse (climate retribution from mother earth god)

    There are more erligious similarities than that I’ll bet.
