I have noted the similarity between global warming hysteria and other religions here before, most notably Islam, after it was reported that Canadian Meteorologist Timothy Ball received death threats for his heretical views on global warming.
Today, we can count two more such similarities.
First, for the obvious one, yet another parallel between Christianity and the church of Gaia. A hotel in California stocks Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth where most place copies of Gideon Bibles.
And now, for the not-so-obvious one:
San Francisco began giving priority to green projects last year. A developer [of such a project] may have to wait only four weeks to start construction instead of eight months, said Richard Chien, residential green building coordinator with the San Francisco Department of the Environment.Call me crazy, but aren't such huge delays often the result of the "necessity" of performing an environmental impact statement before so much as a spade turns the soil? Regardless, we see here that a profession of faith in the Church of Gaia will get you preferential treatment before the law -- just like Moslems enjoy legal privileges denied infidels in lands oppressed by sharia.
