The Climate Change Religion
The mask finally slips: Gore sees ‘spiritual crisis’ in warming:
“It’s in part a spiritual crisis,” Gore told the crowd in the Convention Center at the American Institute of Architects national convention. “It’s a crisis of our own self-definition — who we are. Are we creatures destined to destroy our own species? Clearly not.”
Rush Limbaugh was right: Environmentalism is the new Communism, complete with the same demands to end private property rights. This time, instead of service to the all-powerful State, the focus is service to the all-important “Mother Earth.”
With evidence of warming even on Mars and Jupiter from the Sun’s variable energy production, Al Gore still expects us to believe that rising temperatures on Earth are primarily because of humanity’s activity. The new “carbon offset” fraud has about as much research and accountability as Scientology.
Al Gore’s own mansion has a five-figure electricity bill, yet we’re supposed to believe he cares about the planet? I think Matthew 23 applies here:
Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat:
All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
Environmentalism, as an end unto itself, is a religion, with Al Gore as its Chief Priest, repentance via carbon offsets, and redemption through the Kyoto Protocol. How much more proof do we need?
