Climate change is as much a religious issue as a scientific one. Heres why.
The recent release of hacked e-mails from a leading climate change research unit in Britain confirms what has long been obviousthat climate change is as much a religious issue as a scientific one. There are climate dogmas, climate heretics, warnings of climate apocalypse, climate prohibitions and other features long associated with religion. Leading scientists in the climate debate react to criticism as though they are being attacked by the forces of darkness. Anything, therefore, is permitted in defense of the good.
