Global Warming and Religion in 2012 - The New Religion of Global Warming - Esquire
Hell, one may even be forgiven the temptation to ask the question of Republicans — Hey, how's that whole global-warming-is-a-hoax thing working out for ya? — as unprecedented storms and floods give way to unprecedented droughts and heat waves, and the most dire predictions of climate scientists appear, without exception, to be coming to pass.Flashback: Global Warming May Kill Billions This Century
Writing in The Independent newspaper, Lovelock warns that the world has already passed the point of no return with global warming, and that climate change will kill billions of people in this century as the Earth reaches a â€œcoma'' state from which it may not recover for 100,000 years.Flashback: “‘Global warming’ will kill 6 billion” | ScareWatch
The scare: In March 2009, Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber, director of a grand-sounding pressure-group called the “Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research”, said that “global warming” of 7 Fahrenheit degrees would wipe out all but 1 billion of Earth’s 7 billion human population.
Mr. Schellnhuber said, “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science, because at last we have stabilized something – namely the estimate of the carrying capacity of the planet – fewer than 1 billion people.” The planet, of course, is somehow currently carrying seven times that number. The previous month, Dr. James Hansen of NASA had predicted that “global warming” would raise sea level by 75 meters – equivalent to 246 feet.
