The Collapse Of The Cult Of Man Made Global Warming
History is littered with examples of cults who believed, while in the throes of religious fervour that a specific cataclysmic event was about to happen, the second coming of Jesus Christ, the religious belief made people think there were bullet proof and environmental Armageddon caused by an inert trace essential for plant life on earth.
The Millerites in October 1844 experienced, what became known as the Great Disappointment, when having disposed of all their earthly possessions, they gathered on hills outside New York to await the second coming,
One of the major problems for doomsayers is what happens when you cry wolf repetitively and the CO2 wolf does not appear, the shrill cries of fear fall of deaf ears as yet another prediction from settled science fails to happen.
Science is never settled, anyone who believes in the concept of settled science is either a religious nutcase, or is so intent on pushing a political agenda, that they have abandoned the concept of rational thought, Chris Huhne is a prime example of the latter.
All the trappings of religion are there. Original sin: Mankind is responsible for these prophesied disasters, especially those slobs who live on suburban cul-de-sacs and drive their SUVs to strip malls and tacky chain restaurants.
The need for atonement and repentance: We must impose a carbon tax or cap-and-trade system, which will increase the cost of everything and stunt economic growth.
Ritual, from the annual Earth Day to weekly recycling.
Indulgences, like those Martin Luther railed against: private jet-fliers like Al Gore and sitcom heiress Laurie David can buy carbon offsets to compensate for their carbon-emitting sins.
Corporate elitists, like General Electric’s Jeff Immelt, profess to share this faith, just as cynical Venetian merchants and prim Victorian bankers gave lip service to the religious enthusiasms of their days. Bad for business not to. And if you’re clever, you can figure out how to make money off it.
Believers in this religion have flocked to conferences in Rio de Janeiro, Kyoto and Copenhagen, just as Catholic bishops flocked to councils in Constance, Ferrara and Trent, to codify dogma and set new rules.
But like the Millerites, the global warming clergy has preached apocalyptic doom — and is now facing an increasingly skeptical public. The idea that we can be so completely certain of climate change 70 to 90 years hence that we must inflict serious economic damage on ourselves in the meantime seems increasingly absurd.
If carbon emissions were the only thing affecting climate, the global-warming alarmists would be right. But it’s obvious that climate is affected by many things, many not yet fully understood, and implausible that SUVs will affect it more than variations in the enormous energy produced by the sun.
Something that is looking increasingly likely is that the end of days for Climate Religion will be sometime around December 15th 2011, when COP17 having failed the Watermleon marxists will then turn of each other seeking to apportion blame for the world abandoning Marxisim cunningly disguised in a Green cloak.
