After reading this great piece by Mark Steyn, I suddenly felt like perhaps global warming is one of those issues to which Jesus referred when he said that "false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible." While Al Gore may have not done any miracles (besides resurrecting his political career), he has millions of people considering him a great prophet. While it may seem harmless to believe that global warming needs to be addressed, it is not. The remedy that is now being promoted by Gore and his liberal brethren will destroy the world's economy and kill millions of people if allowed to be fully enacted.
A couple of days before the Oscars, the Reverend Al gave a sell-out performance at the University of Toronto. "From my perspective, it is a form of religion," said Bruce Crofts of the East Toronto Climate Action Group, who compared the former vice president to Jesus Christ, both men being (as the Globe And Mail put it) "great leaders who stepped forward when called upon by circumstance." Unlike Christ, the Eco-Messiah cannot yet walk on water, but then, neither can the polar bears. However, only Al can survey the melting ice caps and turn water into whine. One lady unable to land a ticket frantically begged the university for an audience with His Goriness. As the National Post reported, "Her daughter hadn't been able to sleep since seeing ''An Inconvenient Truth.'' She claimed that seeing Mr. Gore in person might make her daughter feel better." Well, it worked for Leonardo DiCaprio.
It is scary that people can be so easily fooled. While "climate change" hysteria may die off in a few years, it has shown me how easily people, including Christians, can be taken in by a worldly philosophy. The unsaved have no hope, thus they are terrified of anything and everything. Christians should be ashamed to let themselves fall into such anxiety. After all, "heaven and earth will pass away..."

Oh come on, I'm sure I wouldn't drive that erratically in a hybrid.

Seriously though, you can replace "climate change" with "terrorism" in your last paragraph and your theological result is pretty much the same.

The difference I see between human-induced climate change and terrorism is that only the latter is real. While Christians who believe in a hereafter should not fall into hopelessness over terrorism and the growth of radical Islam, they should still support an American government that is only trying to protect its people.
