Global Warming Alarmism In Advanced Stages Of Collapse

Even Huffington Post is starting to figure it out.

G.K. Chesterton said that “when people stop believing in orthodox religion, rather than believe in nothing, they will believe in anything”. One of the ersatz religions which fills the void in recent years is belief in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming. It claims to be based on science. But it has all the characteristics of an eschatological cult.

It has its own priesthood and ecclesiastical establishment – the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; they alone can interpret its sacred scriptures – the Assessment Reports; it anathematises as ‘deniers’ anyone who casts doubt on its certainties; above all it predicts imminent doom if we do not follow its precepts and make the sacrifices it prescribes.

What most clearly distinguishes the Catastrophic Global Warming cult from science is that it is not refutable by facts. As Parliament enacted the Climate Change Bill, on the presumption that the world was getting warmer, it snowed in London in October – the first time in 74 years. Supporters explained “extreme cold is a symptom of global warming”!

The Met Office – whose climate model is the cult’s crystal ball to forecast centuries ahead – has made a series of spectacularly unreliable short term forecasts: “Our children will not experience snow” (that was 2000, before the recent run of cold winters), a barbecue summer (before the dismal 2011 summer), the drought will continue (last spring before the wettest summer on record). Now they say that rain and floods are the new normal. But – hot or cold, wet or dry – global warming is always to blame.

  1. The Catholic Church can spot a competitor when it sees one. Hence their revised sin list. ;-)

    ““You offend God not only by stealing, blaspheming or coveting your neighbor’s wife, but also by ruining the environment, carrying out morally debatable scientific experiments, or allowing genetic manipulations which alter DNA or compromise embryos,” he said.

      “The missionary history of the [Catholic] Church clearly shows her adaptability to all races, all continents, all nations. In her liturgy and her art, in her tradition and the forming of her doctrine, naturally enough she includes Jewish elements, but also elements that are of pagan origin. In certain respects, she has copied her organization from that of the Roman Empire, has preserved and made fruitful the philosophical intuitions of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, borrowed from both Barbarians and the Byzantine Roman Empire—but always remains herself, thoroughly digesting all elements drawn from external sources…In her laws, her ceremonies, her festivals and her devotions, she makes use of local customs after purifying them and “baptizing” them.”

      The signs of Great Global Warming Religion have been around us all the time.

      Guardian – 25 August 2010
      “Why would a solar physicist embrace the non-rationality of religion?”

      John Cook, who runs skepticalscience.com, says his faith drives him. But what does religion give him that science doesn’t?……But Cook’s second, self-professed, stimulus took me by surprise.

      I’m a Christian and find myself strongly challenged by passages in the Bible like Amos 5 and Matthew 25″, he wrote. “… I care about the same things that the God I believe in cares about – the plight of the poor and vulnerable.””

      ——-

      John Cook – Skeptical Science – 3 August 2010
      “….my faith and my situation are my own. But hopefully for those curious, you understand more clearly the driving force behind Skeptical Science.”

      Guardian – 3 November 2009
      Judge rules activist’s beliefs on climate change akin to religion

      “Tim Nicholson entitled to protection for his beliefs, and his claim over dismissal will now be heard by a tribunal…….In his written judgment, Mr Justice Burton outlined five tests to determine whether a philosophical belief could come under employment regulations on religious discrimination…..• It must be a belief and not an opinion or view based on the present state of information available…..”

      BBC – 25 January 2010
      Using religious language to fight global warming

      “If the case for tackling climate change is backed by science, why do so many green campaigners rely on the language of religion?“……The theologian and environmentalist Martin Palmer is also troubled by the green movement’s reliance on visions of hell as a way of converting people to their cause…..”Now they are playing with some of the most powerful emotional triggers in Western culture. They’ve adopted the language and imagery of a millenarian cult.”

      For Palmer, who is a United Nations adviser on climate change and religion,….”

      Church of England – 22 February 2012
      “Leaders representing most of the UK’s mainstream churches have today called for repentance over the prevailing ‘shrug-culture’ towards climate change.”

      LOL. A great comment over at HuffPo reposted below:

      Our carbon, which art in heaven,
      Damned be thy name,
      Thy power be gone,
      Emissions none,
      On earth as it is in heaven,
      Give us this day our daily rations,
      And forgive us our emissions.
      As we forgive those who emissions are greater,
      For their need is more,
      His name is Al Gore,
      For his is the kingdom, the power and the glory for ever and ever, Carbon.

    Holy Mackerel! That’s a notable departure from what the Huffing and Puffington Post normally publishes. I’m not altogether sure that the decision to publish the piece by a conservative isn’t a ‘false flag’ act: reinforce the target audiences prejudices by showing how unreasonable the ‘deniers’ are. But if they did publish in good faith, then mule, meet 2 x 4.

  3. Traitor In Chief says:

    The EU natives are restless. The Pus has begun to leak from Al Goracle, and the Brits are still in their woolens in June. The Kult needs a new crisis.

    Like most in the UK, Puffington Host hasn’t realized that Peter Lilly understands a lot of science and can spot a scam a mile away.

    An old UK Puffington Host said this about him –

    He has called for the Climate Change Act 2008, which introduced the world’s first legally binding framework to tackle climate change, to be shelved. The Hitchin and Harpenden MP was one of just five MPs who voted against the Act.

    He has also attacked the the Stern Review wich examined the economic impact of climate change as “fundamentally flawed”.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/10/25/environment-peter-lilly-climate-change-committee_n_2014908.html

    So he is a politician of some merit.

    • Jimbo says:

      What some of our commenters need to realise is that Peter Lilley is not only a member of the UK parliament he studied Physics and Economics in Cambridge. In his early career he was an energy analyst and has held the position of Secretary of State for Trade and Industry. If anyone can see through the CAGW scam it’s Peter Lilley. He knows his science, energy and economics. The fact that this appeared in HuffPo is a sign that things are slowly but surely turning.
