You can always count on Warmists to put the Mental in Environmental.
Can we have a separation of Green Church and State? The Warmist Cult of Global Warming is really violating that separation with its insistence that the planet is alive and sending typhoons at us because it wants banks to cash in on Carbon Credit taxation.
It seems these days that whenever Mother Nature wants to send an urgent message to humankind, it sends it via the Philippines. This year the messenger was Haiyan, known in the Philippines as Yolanda.
That would make the typhoon the most destructive messenger since Mohammed and that pizza delivery guy who ran over three people.
That it was climate change creating the super typhoons that were taking weird directions was a message from Nature not just to Filipinos but to the whole world
Apparently the typhoon is a prophet preaching the cant of Warmism.
And if you think that The Nation means “messenger” in the sense of inevitable consequences arising from a natural order… nope. They mean it in the religious sense.
Is it a coincidence, ask some people who are not exactly religious, that both Pablo and Yolanda arrived at the time of the global climate negotiations? Pablo smashed into Mindanao during the last stages of the Conference of Parties (COP 18), in Doha last year.
Believing that a typhoon happens to pressure a global warming conference is religious. It’s the Cult of Global Warming.
Now I believe in Freedom of Religion. If you think that the planet is sending typhoons to demand that governments start buying carbon credits, well your religion is stupid and silly, but you have the right to believe in it.
What you don’t have the right to do is impose your religion on everyone else.
Government funding for Warmism is a violation of Church and State. Warmist indoctrination in schools turns them into religious schools.
Environmentalists have the right to believe in any superstition they like, including Nature (capital N) sending typhoons to kill thousands of people because it’s angry about how often you exhale and the flatulence of the cows you eat, but they don’t have the right to make their crazy creed into a state religion.
And that’s what they’re doing.
To reinforce Haiyan’s message, Commissioner Naderev Sano, the top negotiator for the Philippines in Warsaw, went on a hunger strike when the talks began.
Finally, someone who can understand the language of typhoons.
