Excerpt: Krugman: ‘You can deny global warming (and may you be punished in the afterlife for doing so — this kind of denial for petty personal or political reasons is an almost inconceivable sin).’
End Krugman column excerpt:
Climate Depot Note: The global warming activists have a long history of linking climate and weather events to God’s punishment. See below:
Al Gore on the Weather: ‘Every night on the news now, practically, is like a nature hike through the book of Revelations’ — Gore: ‘People around the world are suffering from the consequences of the droughts, and the heatwaves, and the extreme flooding events, and the unprecedented winds storms, and the fires”
Media Morphs into Rev. Jimmy Swaggart: More from Newsweek WashingtonPost.com: ‘In the dying days of climate hoax, aren’t the alarmists using words ‘sin’ and ‘biblical’ even more often?’ — Our lifestyle ‘sins’ are creating deadly bad weather?
Climate Depot Flashback: ‘Faith-Based Climate Astrology’: ‘Events which used to be called ‘acts of God’ or Mother Nature, are now being blamed on mankind’s emissions of a trace essential gas (CO2) in the atmosphere that we exhale from our mouths’
End Times: Peace Prof. Michael Klare in Salon Mag. ‘If earth continues heating at its exponential rate, our post-apocalyptic fantasies could become everyday realities’ [email protected] — ‘We envision rising temperatures, prolonged droughts, freakish storms, hellish wildfires, and rising sea levels…food riots, mass starvation, state collapse, mass migrations, and conflicts of every sort, up to and including full-scale war, could prove even more disruptive and deadly…persistent drought and hunger will force millions of people to abandon their traditional lands and flee to the squalor of shantytowns’

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, “biblical”?

Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!
Flashback: UK Prof. Philip Stott: ‘From the Babylon of Gilgamesh to the post-Eden of Noah, every age has viewed climate change cataclysmically, as retribution for human greed and sinfulness’ — Stott: ‘Extreme weather events are ever present, and there is no evidence of systematic increases…Global warming represents the latest doom-laden ‘crisis,’ one demanding sacrifice to Gaia for our wicked fossil-fuel-driven ways. But neither history nor science bolsters such an apocalyptic faith’
The Religion of Global Warming: ‘All the trappings of religion are here: Original sin: Mankind is responsible for the prophesied disasters. The need for atonement and repentance’ — ‘The global warming clergy is preaching apocalyptic disaster…We must impose a carbon tax or cap-and-trade system, which will raise the cost of everything and stunt economic growth. Rituals: We must observe Earth Day, and we must recycle. Indulgences: Private jet-fliers like Al Gore and sitcom heiress Laurie David can buy carbon offsets to compensate for their carbon-emitting sins. Prophecy and faith in things unseen’
