In Green We Trust

The mother goddess is in pain, we are told, crying out because we are harming her,
raising temperatures, flooding islands and bringing storms. If we do not relent, she will destroy us. It is up to the faithful who have the special knowledge and who are attuned to her plight, to save mankind from the apocalypse that we have brought on ourselves with our sinful ways. -- by Daniel Greenfield

I invite you to see my 2008 essay, "Environmentalist religion explained," in which I explain how "environmentalism is in fact a perfect 21st century remapping of traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs and myths."

Donald Sensing,
Your essay ranks right there with Sultan Knish. Great minds and all that. Thanks for linking it.
