Climate change given same legal status as religion

How about that? The UK Telegraph is reporting a court decision described as “landmark.” Actually, it is just recognizing the obvious: The Goremons, gaiaists, and assorted fruits and nuts on the Left consider their support for Global Warming as a matter of faith. The courts follow suit …

Mr Justice Michael Burton said that “a belief in man-made climate change … is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations”.

The ruling could open the door for employees to sue their companies for failing to account for their green lifestyles, such as providing recycling facilities or offering low-carbon travel.

Wonderful. This new religion even throws out a revenue stream for trial lawyers.

Frankly, I think it’s time to address the need for the Wall of Separation between government and this new religion. They are uncomfortably cozy for most of us. (h/t Pielke)
