Climate Change is a Religion

Reverend Al Gore, Church of Gaia, is not pleased...

Climate change is a religion.  I've said this before, but Michael Barone says it so much better.  Maybe that's why, unlike me, he gets paid to write stuff...
The secular religion of global warming has all the elements of a religious faith: original sin (we are polluting the planet), ritual (separate your waste for recycling), redemption (renounce economic growth) and the sale of indulgences (carbon offsets).

We are told that we must have faith (all argument must end, as Al Gore likes to say) and must persecute heretics (global warming skeptics are like Holocaust deniers, we are told).  (Michael Barone - RCP)

I am in total agreement as I dig myself out of 20" of snow.

The irony is almost, as thick as the snow.
