Age of Unreason: How fear and ignorance drives the green doomsday cult
The new ‘green’ religion is a world where the naïve and gullible seek salvation through the veneration of wind turbines – as if crucifixes – belief in “the science” has supplanted Scripture and ‘scientists’ peddling doomsday tales garner rapt attention, like the fire and brimstone preachers, of old. Those who question “the science” are branded “deniers”, with all the vehemence that was once reserved for Spanish Inquisitors rooting out heretics.
What’s dressed up as “progress” these days seems more and more like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance.
Anyone who thinks that wind turbines and solar panels equate with mortal salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the so-called inevitable ‘transition’ to an all wind and solar powered future.
As in days gone by, the model rests on invent new forms of fear and firmly instilling them. And then following up with the promise of redemption through sacrifice and worship; albeit worshipping wind turbines and solar panels, instead of saints and idols.
The faithful readily subscribe to the myth and the mantras – and merrily provide buckets of cash – all for a chance to get up close and personal with one of these whirling wonders (see above) and to otherwise signal their supreme virtue, to all and sundry.
Prager University poses the the following: Has environmentalism become more than just a good faith effort to protect the Earth? Is it now tantamount to a religion? And if it is, is that a good thing or a bad thing?
PragerU’s latest short documentary, hosted by Will Witt, explores the origins, agenda, and motives of today’s environmental movement. What he finds raises some challenging questions for anyone who sincerely cares about the future of the planet.
