Gore explains that global warming isn't a political issue at all: "The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift global consciousness to a higher level."
Glad he cleared that up. I had been thinking it had something to do with science...Planet Gore, Jay Richard, National Review Online, 10/12/2007
For some time, Wonker and I have been attempting to explain the fearful parallel of the Global Warming Thesis to other mock religions (communism, nazi-ism, and other totalitarian movements). Like them, it blames a particular group for all the ills of society (those who consume hydrocarbons, you know, the vast proportion of society in the developed AND undeveloped world). Like them, it declares that if these people (you and me) aren't stopped, there will be -- gasp! an Apocalypse, an absolute End of Things As We Know Them Now, and the consequences will last Forever! Only Transforming the Behavior of this Evil Crew will Save the World!
