INSTAPORNDIT II: Global Warming = The View?

We're finding it remarkable how people will keep referring to a person - or society - being in thrall to a religion, or a cult, but never discussing what that actually means for how decisions are made, resources are spent, or the consequences we face from this type type of thinking.
