Thought Experiment - 2

Helen Grady at the BBC accepts that global warming is happening, but wonders why so many of its advocates use religious terminology. Christian, terminology, I'd add. It's nice to see that the BBC agrees with me that there's a Church of Global Warming out there - and I repeat my oft-stated position that global warming or not, burning old fossils can't be a good thing. Not for the atmosphere, not for the windfalls it gives the Saudis, Russians and Hugo Chavez.

Reading her article suggested another thought experiment. Some American left-wing pundits bemoan how their ideological adversaries resort to fear to promote their agenda. Fear of terrorists, fear of death panels, fear of the end of the world as we know it... hey, isn't that a fear both sides like to warn of?
