The Religion of Global Warming
What do you mean global warming is a religion? There are evangelist, sin and absolution, ritual, faith, tithing, guilt, sacrifice, prophesy… sounds like a religion to me. The only question now is, are you a believer or denier?
If you think about it, being a faithful worshiper to the god of global warming requires little effort and perfect for those who just want something to believe in. If you ever have to defend your belief any questions can be referenced to the man behind the curtain… the all-knowing scientist. Someone questions your programming you instantly leap into ridicule mode. The topic of pollution is your safety value, because who can argue for polluted water or dirty air? Just keep buying the religion approved green light bulbs and you’re in like Flynn.
Now we come to the global warming religious fanatic. Yes, I’m afraid all religions have them so why should this be any different. To this group, man is always the problem. You may notice that it’s always other people and never convert, but people just the same. They will commit a multitude of crimes for the green cause and many are much more destructive than what they are protesting. Bullying and guilt is the chosen method of evangelism and they rarely tolerate disagreement. This group is relatively small, but it would be in your best interest to avoid them at all cost.
Let us now examine the Grand Pu-bah of the global warming movement. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Al Gore. Your first impression may be to recognize his gift for grabbing an audience. If you don’t listen too closely, it’s even possible to get caught up in the moment. However, if you do take the time to examine his facts and way of life you will see that he displays all the characteristics of the classic religious hypocrite.
The Gore family lifestyle in no way mirrors what he is preaching. His carbon footprint is easily 20 times that of mortal man. In order to receive absolution he confesses his sins by buying carbon credits… from himself. He deflects criticism by comparing his effort to combat global warming with those in the past that fought the evils of slavery. A bit like comparing apples and oranges, but what does it matter? It sounds good. To give us a good idea about Mr. Gore we can repeat his own words to live by, “Whatever works.” This bit of Algorian philosophy always incites applause and laughter.
If the religion of global warming is your thing, then go for it. But in the process please stop demanding everyone else pay your ridiculous dues. It’s your religion and your responsibility, so you pay for it and please leave the rest of us alone. We have our own religions to finance.
