Incalescence in the Anglican Church of Canada

The Anglican Church in the West, having largely abandoned the gospel of the bible, has settled on Global Warming and same-gender copulation as worthy replacements. So much attention has been given to the latter, that global warming tends to receive short shrift.

To set the record straight: there are protests (ironically, this one begins “Braving gusty winds, Anglicans….”), sections on web sites,  and gruesome  Eco-Justice camps. Not to mention excruciating liturgies,  green worship,  how to have a relationship with the earth,  and green cleaninggrounds and meetings.

The Anglican Church, where you can’t get no calefaction:

Global warming is the new religion of First World urban elites

Geologist Ian Plimer takes a contrary view, arguing that man-made climate change is a con trick perpetuated by environmentalists

Ian Plimer has outraged the ayatollahs of purist environmentalism, the Torquemadas of the doctrine of global warming, and he seems to relish the damnation they heap on him.

Plimer is a geologist, professor of mining geology at Adelaide University, and he may well be Australia’s best-known and most notorious academic.

Plimer, you see, is an unremitting critic of “anthropogenic global warming” — man-made climate change to you and me — and the current environmental orthodoxy that if we change our polluting ways, global warming can be reversed.

The Anglican Church of Canada has noticed that it is getting hotter: but it’s the flames of hell licking its foundations, not global warming.
