Reverand Al and the Inquisition!

William F. Buckley in his column "Naturalism" defines Al Gore's global warming pronouncements as a type of religious inquisition. The two key paragraphs:

  • "The whole business is eerily religious in feel. Back in the 15th century, the question was: do you believe in Christ? It was required in Spain by the Inquisition that the answer should be affirmative, leaving to one side subsidiary specifications.
  • It is required today to believe that carbon-dioxide emissions threaten the basic ecological balance. The assumption then is that inasmuch as a large proportion of the damage is man-made, man-made solutions are necessary. But it is easy to see, right away, that there is a problem in devising appropriate solutions, and in allocating responsiblity for them."
