Has our PM found a faith?

Australia’s prime minister Julia Gillard has often come under fire for being the first athiest to lead the country. Now, I don’t think this is fair, nor do I care what religion she follows. Having said that, I have reason to believe she has renounced her athieism. During question time this week, she was talking about the report recently released by the climate commission entitled ‘The Critical Decade’. “It’s a critical decade for those who believe in climate change,” she said. Now, believing in climate change is something quite unscientific. Scientists weigh up the evidence and come to a conclusion based on that, rather than having faith in one side of the argument. It is something the public should also do on this issue.

While I may simply be reading too much into her words, I definately got the impression that global warming is something that she choses to believe in global as a matter of faith. It is my opinion that if presented with incontrovertible evidence that it was false, then she would become the ‘climate change denier’. While warmists frequently ridicule the suggestion, I do think that aspects of the global warming movement could be considered religious (have you heard Tim Flannery talk about gaia), the fact that there are those who believe it beyond doubt despite never seeing any evidence (although Al Gore can accept some of the blame with his blatant misrepresentation of the Vostok ice core). In this church, Al Gore is the almighty and Christopher Monckton is the devil.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

  1. There is no such thing as a pure human. If you’re understanding the title “Athiest” to mean someone with no faith, you’re missing the point of even being an Athiest. As far as I can tell, by what you posted here, she’s simply saying that science has made a mistake by making an asumption regarding climate change.

    On another note: Many political leaders, both now and in history, have used religion as a weapon in their desire to retain or gain power. In short, politicians lie to gain their desire. That’s never been more the case than today.

    By His Grace.
