Q&A religion bashing ignored climate change
This week’s edition of the ABC program Q&A missed a golden opportunity to pursue one of the major questions about the whole global warming scare – how much has it become a quasi-religious movement.
The topic of Q&A was religion. Tony Jones managed to work in the issue of boat people and immigration detention without making it clear how that related to the subject of the program.
Yet the most obvious issue – tailor made for such a discussion – of how global warming has become a matter of faith was ignored.
Jones raised the spectre of children being indoctrinated at religious schools:
TONY JONES: Are you at all worried that in religious schools children get indoctrinated, which I think is one of the points Richard was making?
What about the indoctrination of children in government schools with the global warming faith?
Earlier in the evening on “Australian Story” the subject of that program was seen at school answering a teacher’s question, and the answer was “the Kyoto protocol”.
Jones won’t go near the topics of global warming indoctrination and climate change fanaticism.
As Ian Plimer has observed, global warming has become like a religious movement and heretics – deniers as they are called – are the 21st century version of the Salem witches.
But it is no surprise Jones and his producers passed up the opportunity to pursue the issue of global warming as religion in favour of a long and irrelevant discussion on asylum seekers because at the ABC there are two faiths – asylum seekers and man-made global warming.
