Global Warming: Is It a Religion?

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., wrote a 2008 column highlighting the lack of snow in the Washington D.C. area.

While it was intended to be a hit piece on then vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, parts of it are charming.

He recalls his uncle, President John F. Kennedy, standing erect in a toboggan, in his topcoat, sledding down the hill and the Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, his father, bringing home a delegation of Eskimos for lunch and afterward spending the afternoon building an igloo in the Kennedy's backyard.

Those were the days. Now he says, "snow is so scarce that most Virginia children probably don't even own a sled."

This past weekend over 32 inches of snow fell on the Washington D.C. area, and there is another snow storm moving in today.

Last weekend the family of Senator Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., built an igloo near the US Capitol and put signs on it reading, "Al Gore's New Home" and "Honk If You Love Global Warming."

The left has seen the igloo or at least pictures of it and they are mad. Many are calling Inhofe a "right wing extremist."

Why are they so touchy about this. They're fervent. Their faith in Al Gore and a growing body of flawed facts is impressive, to say the least.

Is global warming a religion? Or maybe a cult? As a youth pastor, I have helped a lot of kids who have gotten involved in cults. I think I see some similarities.

The Copenhagen Climate Summit ended in disaster by nearly everyone's estimation. Collapsing with the discovery of fraud among the scientists who represented the movement and public fighting between the rich nations and the poor nations over the money.

The left's response? Stand firm. Keep the faith.

Monday, the Associated Press reported that President Obama has, you guessed it, proposed a new agency for climate change, aka, global warming.

Washington State's own Gary Locke, the administration's Commerce Secretary said, "Whether we like it or not, climate change represents a real threat."

Keep the faith. Move on. Keep the heat on. Forget the snow.

Is any of this related to the investments of Al Gore and his investors? Who is actually invested in the many green projects Gore has under way, which according to him, can only succeed with government subsidy.

Is the idea of man-made global warming an Earth worshipping religion or cult? With a few at the top profiting from the followers?

Walter Williams, a syndicated columnist, has written an excellent article that explores that very question and suggests that the movement is built on a whole lot of flawed information and an even greater amount of ego. I recommend you read his article.

And remember; the founder of a truly great religion has said, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."

Be free. Be vigilant. Be active.
