Green religion — justification by climate faith alone
Listen closely to the cant and jargon of modern environmentalism, and in the empty invocations of “science,” you are witnessing the rites of a religious faith. If the screams after President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement seemed overwrought, it’s because Trump hadn’t merely adopted a policy the other side disagreed with; he’d committed a secular, liberal, sacrilege.
Take CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, who said, “This will be the day that the United States resigned as the leader of the free world.” He then listed what he regarded as the benefits of Paris, without addressing why it had anything to do with American leadership.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump supports a “dirty-energy agenda” that is a “grave threat to our planet.”
