Global Warming a Religion -- Something We Have Known for a Long Time

(Reasonable Kansans h/t-import)

Climate change belief given same legal status as religion

An executive has won the right to sue his employer on the basis that he was unfairly dismissed for his green views after a judge ruled that environmentalism had the same weight in law as religious and philosophical beliefs.

In a landmark ruling, Mr Justice Michael Burton said that "a belief in man-made climate change ... is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations".

The ruling could open the door for employees to sue their companies for failing to account for their green lifestyles, such as providing recycling facilities or offering low-carbon travel.

Eh...the global warming hysteria is going down just like Darwin's materialistic just so stories about origins. I've talked to several hard core liberals who are *quickly* backing away from their previous support for Al Gore's money making endeavor.
