The Apocalypse comes early

According to George Monbiot - Goodbye, kind world.

Climate change has become the latest religion, the most recent stand-in for Socialism for those that got the message that Socialism was a very bad idea but still need an all-encompassing ideology to explain why they are right and most other people are wrong.
Few people are now foolish enough to claim that man-made climate change isn't happening at all, but the few are still granted plenty of scope to make idiots of themselves in public. Last month they were joined by the former environmentalist David Bellamy.

Bellamy believes "the link between the burning of fossil fuels and global warming is a myth" which is enough to have him condemned as a "climate change denier" - with the deliberate reference to the Holocaust - according to Monbiot.
