The Great Global Warming Fizzle

The climate religion fades in spasms of anger and twitches of boredom.
It is presided over by a caste of spectacularly unattractive people pretending to an obscure form of knowledge that promises to make the seas retreat and the winds abate. As with religion, it comes with an elaborate list of virtues, vices and indulgences. As with religion, its claims are often non-falsifiable, hence the convenience of the term "climate change" when thermometers don't oblige the expected trend lines. As with religion, it is harsh toward skeptics, heretics and other "deniers." And as with religion, it is susceptible to the earthly temptations of money, power, politics, arrogance and deceit. -- Stephens- WSJ.com

Your Say

True religion -- What does the Lord require of you? To do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.

False religion -- What does Gaia require of you? To deceive wickedly, to attack your critics ruthlessly, and to walk in the arrogance of settled science.
