The Environmental Religion

I thought it was clever when I first began to notice the vocabulary of religion being used so pervasively by Environmentalists. And who could dispute the genius of the Global Warming claims, if the earth heats up or goes into another ice age, they can claim it's the fault of humans and keep the money flowing.

Michael Crichton wrote State of Fear about it. Mark Steyn targets it as well.
The editor of the New Yorker, David Remnick, says the Earth will "likely be an uninhabitable planet."
Considering what the earth has been through in the past from fire to ice, that's a pretty big claim. People like Al Gore compete with each other to compose the most dire warnings.

It would be comic, but for the "remedies" these people are pushing. We need to do away with freedom, energy use, except the ones that haven't been proven, and the whole industrial revolution have to be abandoned. No matter that billions would die--it's the new "final solution." We just have to face it. Nature is benevolent, true, but in evolving mankind she just screwed up, and we have to correct the situation, by letting people starve, or releasing new plagues. It's for our own good, after all. This makes worshipping Moloch by burning infants as offerings, look quaint and inefficient.
