This is totally a credit to the fantastic Michael Crichton, who is no longer with us (passed away 2008). The idea that environmental movement is in the process of becoming a religion is relatively a new one, just as the movement is, we are not talking about a century old discipline that is already indoctrinated around the world, however we are talking about a movement that has growing dramatically over the past decade and that is enjoying an overwhelming level of financial support from almost every country in the western world.
The ideas that this movement promote are speculation, not fact, and the way it treats people who criticism it should alarm even the most peace loving weather concerned person out there. The problem always starts when people use a set of beliefs (in this case that global warming is a direct result of human activity) to force change upon everyone else, and demanding not to be questioned or challenged, and this is exactly what is going on with this movement these days.
Here are two videos to start this new category (Environmentalism) going, the first is of Mr. Crichton making his point about the movement and its religious characteristics, the second is much more recent in which global warming champion former vice president of the United States of America Al Gore makes an almost Freudian slip when talking about people who question his theory of climate change.
