Cal Thomas sees two characteristics shared by religious fundamentalists and the current crop of global warming alarmists:
One is the exclusion and sometimes suppression of any and all information that challenges or contradicts the belief one wishes to impose on all. The other is the use of the state in pursuit of their objectives, overriding the majority’s will.
He documents the first trait in some of the sloppy global warming scare journalism that has circulated of late, such as the recent (and discredited) NASA claim that 1998 was the hottest year on record.
The second trait is established by this curious coincidence:
One can get a sense of who is telling the truth about global warming by the company the concept keeps. Most of the disciples of global warming are liberal Democrats who never have enough of our money and believe there are never enough regulations concerning the way we lead our lives. That ought to be enough to give everyone pause, along with emerging evidence that the global warming jihadists may be more full of hot air than the climate they claim is about to burn us up.
