Besides bringing snow to Toronto – “the first significant snowfall in the area” this season, in fact; the Gore Effect is irreversible – Al Gore’s University of Toronto lecture brought forth impressive statements of faith from global warmening believers:
“From my perspective, it is a form of religion,” said Bruce Crofts, 69, as he held a banner aloft for the East Toronto Climate Action Group amid a lively prelecture crowd outside the old hall. “The religion for this group is doing something for the environment.”
“It was not our intention to have a religious approach,” ecoSanity group founder Glenn MacIntosh said, “but it was our understanding that it was that kind of movement that people were craving; that kind of spiritual connection in their gut.”
This reckless “spiritual connection” talk really steams the guys at treehugger.com:
I would urge even those people for whom environmentalism *feels* like a religion to refrain from describing it as such.
Splitters! Meanwhile, barely any criticism from our Holy Herbivores over Al Gore’s Gaia-whuppin’ concert plans; do read Joe Carter’s carbon audit on these egomaniacal eco-events.
(Via Small Dead Animals which observes: “It’s important to note that one important variable has not been included. With the Gore Effect factored in, one can anticipate at least half of the planned events will be cancelled due to cold.”)
