Global Warming

Anyone who thinks religion is waning in the West should consider the Global-warmists. You don't even need to read the articles anymore, they're all the same: 1.) the temperatures are rising, which has never happened before, 2.) people, and more specifically, American people, are to blame, and 3.) This will kill us all in this particularly horrible way.

The "this" changes, but other than that the articles are all the same. And most of them, since the early 90's, have thrown in that "the science is now settled". Anyway, I just ran across this:

"I had another interesting experience around the time my paper in Science was published. I received an astonishing email from a major researcher in the area of climate change. He said, "We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period."
And what struck me was the first image that came to mind: the e-mailer was a church elder, urging a scholar to skirt information damaging to their, assumed shared, dogma.
