That’s the headline of an article at the Vancouver Sun which was linked to by the Drudge Report.
Purging humankind of its supposed sins of environmental degradation has become a religion with a fanatical and often intolerant priesthood, especially among the First World urban elites.
But [Ian Pilmer, professor of mining geology at Adelaide University in Australia] shows no sign of giving way to this orthodoxy and has just published the latest of his six books and 60 academic papers on the subject of global warming.
. . .
Plimer presents the proposition that anthropogenic global warming is little more than a con trick on the public perpetrated by fundamentalist environmentalists and callously adopted by politicians and government officials who love nothing more than an issue that causes public anxiety.
This has been my point for a while, global warming is one of the main beliefs of the new post-Christian religion. Ian Pilmer, who is "vehemently anti-creationist," also understands the religion connection.
