against global warming alarmism.
Weisman is not alone in merging environmentalism with religion. Writing in the Chronicle of Education, Pascal Bruckner explores the parallels between global warmism and religion:
Consider the meaning in contemporary jargon of the famous carbon footprint that we all leave behind us. What is it, after all, if not the gaseous equivalent of Original Sin, of the stain that we inflict on our Mother Gaia by the simple fact of being present and breathing? We can all gauge the volume of our emissions, day after day, with the injunction to curtail them, just as children saying their catechisms are supposed to curtail their sins.
