Premise: If you think that my terms of envirotheist and envirotheism are over the top, you better read the following quotes. To many this death-based utopia is a religious devotion. Envirotheists worship the earth and want to return it to a pristine wilderness (except for their private jets, mansions, yachts, etc.):

~Their daily Earth pledge – “I pledge allegiance to the Earth and all its sacred parts. Its water, land and living things and all its human hearts.”~ – Global Education Associates

~ “It is the responsibility of each human being today to choose between the force of darkness and the force of light. We must therefore transform our attitudes, and adopt a renewed respect for the superior laws of Divine Nature.”~ – Maurice Strong, billionaire envirotheist

~ “Little by little a planetary prayer book is thus being composed by an increasingly united humanity seeking its oneness. Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with ‘divine,’ its transcendence into higher forms of life.”~ – Robert Muller, UN Assistant Secretary General

~ “Nature is my god. To me, nature is sacred; trees are my temples and forests are my cathedrals.”~ – Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev

~ “I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to be a new form of the ten commandments. They lay the foundation for a sustainable global earth community.”~ – Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev

~ “The spirit of our planet is stirring! The Consciousness of Goddess Earth is now rising against all odds, in spite of millennia of suppression, repression and oppression inflicted on Her by a hubristic and misguided humanity. The Earth is a living entity, a biological organism with psychic and spiritual dimensions.”~ – EnvisionEarth

1990 to 2014 Global Temperatures

~ “We have wished, we ecofreaks, for a disaster or for a social change to come and bomb us into Stone Age, where we might live like Indians in our valley, with our localism, our appropriate technology, our gardens, our homemade religion — guilt-free at last!”~ – Stewart Brand, Whole Earth Catalogue

~ “The greatest hope for the Earth lies in religionists and scientists uniting to awaken the world to its near fatal predicament and then leading mankind out of the bewildering maze of international crises into the future Utopia of humanist hope.”~ – Club of Rome, environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations

~ “Our salvation depends upon our ability to create a religion of nature.”~ – René Dubos, envirotheist known for “Think globally, act locally”

~ “All life on Earth is our kin. And in an act of generosity, our relatives create the four sacred elements for us.”~ – David Suzuki, envirotheist

~ “For me the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and the sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.”~ – Rajendra Pachauri, head UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

~ “The fate of mankind, as well as religion, depends on the emergence of a new faith in the future. Armed with such a faith, we might find it possible to resanctify the earth.”~ – Al Gore

~ “The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift Global Consciousness to a higher level.”~ – Al Gore, Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech

~ “Government in the future will be based upon . . . a supreme office of the biosphere. The office will comprise specially trained philosopher/ecologists. These guardians will either rule themselves or advise an authoritarian government of policies based on their ecological training and philosophical sensitivities. These guardians will be specially trained for the task.”~ – David Shearman, IPCC Assessor

Conclusion: For every public statement by the head of a movement, ten thousand activists eagerly nod their heads. Can you now see that the global warming issue is not predominantly about global warming?
