And Forgive Us Our Carbon Footprints

You doubt that global warming (paused for the last 18 years or so) has taken on the qualities of a religion?

Check out our president welcoming the Pope:

"Holy Father, you remind us that we have a sacred obligation to protect our planet, God's magnificent gift to us," Obama said.

A "sacred obligation."

Yes, indeed, the science faith is settled.

Now go and emit no more.

UPDATE: This is kind of funny when you consider all the planet-killing jet travel that it takes to get to the mountains:

The Alps are the birthplace of downhill skiing and a crucible attracting mountain climbers from everywhere — and now the French government is trying to help towns at the heart of the lucrative tourism industry adapt to a warming world.

In a "we have to destroy the village in order to save it" logic, shouldn't France ban international skiing and mountain climbing travel to save the ice and snow?

Apparently, the progress of a glacier's retreat there has been marked for a century now. Mankind has been contributing to the greenhouse effect for about 65 years.

Which would explain why the models are so wrong. Which reflects my major reason for rejecting the "science." Why do we think man's contribution is the decisive influence?

No worries, the vast warm wing conspiracy is on the job to fix the problem.
