Another Earth Day approaches, and the legions of the devout, egged on by their spiritual leader, Barack Obama, will be out in force to preach the gospel of climate change. Evidence that global warmism is a religion, not science, has been mounting faster than the proliferation of half-baked efforts to prove its legitimacy. Adherents to the faith have called upon the gods of climate change to strike down apostates in an “extreme weather event.” Even Rajendra Pachauri, head of the United Nations’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change panel, who resigned in February amid charges he had sexually harassed a 29-year-old woman, wrote in his resignation letter:
For me, the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems, is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.
So what has Obama dreamed up for this year’s Feast of Earth Day, which falls on Wednesday?

Evidence that they spread their message can be found in images of the scene their supporters left behind:
