Cult of Global Warming Is Losing Influence - Michael Barone - Townhall Conservative

TownHall.com colunist Michael Barone has written an article entitled “Cult of Global Warming Is Losing Influence”. Below are some excerpts from that article:

  • All the trappings of religion are there. Original sin: Mankind is responsible for these prophesied disasters, especially those slobs who live on suburban cul-de-sacs and drive their SUVs to strip malls and tacky chain restaurants.
  • The need for atonement and repentance: We must impose a carbon tax or cap-and-trade system, which will increase the cost of everything and stunt economic growth.
  • Ritual, from the annual Earth Day to weekly recycling.
  • Indulgences, like those Martin Luther railed against: private jet-fliers like Al Gore and sitcom heiress Laurie David can buy carbon offsets to compensate for their carbon-emitting sins.
