Global warming: The new religion

This is the new religion of the left......bowing at the altar of junk science (errrr I mean enviromentalism).

History says the rise of reason and revulsion stopped religious witch-burning. Or maybe they just got all the witches. Likewise, the global warming hysterics of today may run out of steam when reason prevails. Or when they get all the capitalists.

MIT professor Richard Lindzen, heretical scientist, has an insight into the global warming industry.

"Do you believe in global warming? That is a religious question," he said at the National Press Club this month. But it keeps a lot of preachers of the faith employed and the folks stirred up.

Continuing on the professor's theme: Either the Earth will warm catastrophically, or not. Belief has nothing to do with it.
