Dave: Open the pod bay doors, HAL. HAL: I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that. That’s a famous exchange between astronaut Dave Bowman and the computer companion on his spaceship in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. That movie was filmed in 1968 and it accurately predicted a technology we have on our […]

What elements do you need before you can call something a religion?
First, you need a figurehead, a leader. The Church of Global Warming (COGW) has Al Gore. He’s their High Priest. Al has sway over his followers just like Sun Myung Moon has over the Moonies in the Unification Church.
Second, you need a symbol and a Holy Book. Christians have the cross and the Bible. Muslims have the crescent and the Koran. Jews have the Star of David and the Talmud. COGW has the hockey stick and “An Inconvenient Truth.”
Third, you need a set of beliefs that nobody is allowed to challenge. Al Gore and other climate change scientists have said repeatedly “the science is settled.”
The Church of Global warming has their own dogma.
- Original Sin: Mankind is responsible for the prophesied disasters.
- Atonement: We must impose a carbon tax or cap-and-trade system.
- Rituals: We must observe Earth Day and we must recycle.
- Indulgences: The rich can continue to pollute as long as they buy carbon offsets.
- Prophecy: We must act now before it’s too late.
Fourth, you need adherents that will follow their leader without question. I know some of these people. They have concluded that what gives meaning to their lives is the belief that they are saving the planet by paying attention to their carbon footprint and recycling. People with no other source of meaning will defend their religion with jihadist zeal. They continue to believe even though there has been no rise in global temperatures for the past 15 years.
True believers in the COGW flock to conferences in Durban, Rio de Janeiro, Kyoto, and Copenhagen, where the global warming clergy preach about apocalyptic disasters. It’s like a pilgrimage to Mecca.
As with any religion, you have hypocrites. Al “Do as I say, not as I do” Gore owns a mansion that gobbles up 20 times more energy than the average American home. How many tons of carbon do you think global warming alarmists put into the atmosphere jetting off to conferences? And let’s not forget the great Climategate scandal of 2009.
All of these things are the elements of a new religion, “The Church of Global Warming.”

…to the SyFy channel. Your blood will run cold in your veins. Your heart will freeze with terror. From the producers who brought you the epic, “Sharknado,” in partnership with Al Gore. Presenting: Polar Vortex the Movie.

In 1974, TIME magazine was blaming the polar vortex on global cooling.
“Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.”
In 2014, TIME magazine blames the polar vortex on global warming!
“But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global warming could be making the occasional bout of extreme cold weather in the U.S. even more likely. Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles.”
So which is it? The religion of climate change scientists demands that they find an explanation for every weather event that ties it to global warming. It takes more faith to believe in global warming than it does to believe in God.
