And in the UK, belief in anthropomorphic climate change has been legally given the status of a religion:
An executive has won the right to sue his employer on the basis that he was unfairly dismissed for his green views after a judge ruled that environmentalism had the same weight in law as religious and philosophical beliefs.
In a landmark ruling, Mr Justice Michael Burton said that “a belief in man-made climate change … is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations”.
The good news is that we can look forward with anticipation to Dawkins and his cronies mocking this as they do every other religion. Maybe not.
