Robert Nelson really hit the nail on the head yesterday in the DC with his article “Earth Day — a national establishment of religion.”

As such, issues such as climate change involve more than just “science.” The Bible’s book of Deuteronomy reveals dire consequences for those who seek to “play God.” We learn that God will strike down sinners who “worship other gods,” causing them to suffer “infections, plague and war. He will blight your crops, covering them with mildew. All these devastations shall pursue you until you perish.”

Contemporary environmentalism prophesies virtually the same set of environmental calamities resulting from global warming: rising seas, famine, drought, pestilence, hurricanes and other natural disasters. Often without realizing it, environmentalism is recasting traditional biblical messages. The Endangered Species Act replaces Noah’s Ark; wilderness areas are the environmental “cathedrals”; Earth Day is the new “Easter,” a time for deep religious reflection and revival.

Environmentalism thus is literally, not simply metaphorically, a new religion.

In honor of my aversion to this apologetic hippie kool-aid, I’ll be watching Lord Monckton videos, perusing over Jeffrey Tucker’s blog entries/”Bourbon for Breakfast”, and reading Václav Klaus’s “Blue Planet in Green Shackles.”

I don’t claim to know enough science to dismiss any global warming theories, that would make me as epistemically arrogant as the people who want to impose this lifestyle upon me. However, I must try my best to resist this fascist call for me to adopt a new religion.

Speaking of which, I hope the Christians who read this blog have a reflective Good Friday and I bid my Jewish friends a good pesach.
