"From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption." – Al Gore (New York Times, Feb. 27, 2010)
Thus spake the great high priest of globo-Marxism. His cult, formerly known as "Global Warming", is now called “Climate Change” -- since temperatures, on their own, stopped rising 15 years ago. The first commandment of this new faith (really just a modern brand of pagan Gaea-worship) is “Thou shalt not emit carbon dioxide”. Inasmuch as all (who breathe) haved sinned (with every exhalation), we have fallen short of the glory of (Al) Gore.
Gore's new-world order redefines “salvation” and “redemption”. By his catechism, salvation is achieved by submission to a global “cap-and-tax” scheme of regulating and restricting carbon emissions. Redemption may be purchased, not with our new savior’s blood, but with “carbon credits” available (conveniently enough) from Al Gore.
Despite all evidence that carbon dioxide does NOT cause global warming or indications that our current climate is quite "ordinary", only by acquiescing to Gore’s unassailable wisdom, subjugating ourselves to the power of his “scientific consensus”, may we escape personal and collective catastrophe.
Beware of false prophets pedaling tyranny in the name of redemption.
