It is no coincidence that man-made global warming, or climate change, or whatever it's called this week, got very popular as an issue just as the Soviet Union fell. It is the top-down centralized government's last best hope of controlling the masses. And like other forms of socialist totalitarian worldviews, it is a religion as well.Beatty adds that "Man-made Global Warming is an earth-worshipping religion. " Sounds a little like Professor Tim Flannery's GAIA worship.
Tim Blair, in his column in the Daily Telegraph once wrote:
A couple of months ago, author and dinosaur-bone specialist Tim Flannery told a Sydney audience that "within this century, the concept of the strong Gaia will actually become physically manifest.Beatty adds that "as with most religions, it is susceptible to the earthly temptations of money, power, politics, arrogance, and deceit."
"This planet, this Gaia, will have acquired a brain and a nervous system that will make it act as a living animal, as a living organism."
