It used to be called global warming until the data became so inconsistent with a warming climate that they had to regroup. So now it has been rechristened "climate change," but the data still doesn't support it. What's supporting environmentalism is political correctness, money (It's all about redistributing income.), and "green is the new red."
Former Czech President, Vaclav Klaus, an economist, said this in 2011:
global warming is a religion conceived to suppress human freedom....It is used to justify an enormous scope for government intervention vis-a-vis the markets and personal freedom.Amen! Maybe the pope should talk to Klaus before paying allegiance to the church of environmentalism!
