It's a big peeve of mine that global warming has gone from theory to cultural dogma with little more than well-placed news stories and a questionable "documentary" to back it up. The Anchoress has an excellent piece on her blog: 17,000 scientists dissent, no consensus on global warming.
I read an article last night about guilt-free vacations that allow people to buy carbon offsets --kind of like environmental indulgences--for their vacation travel.
This is the lefts new religion.
