Our betters had better get a grip on their narrative. We have been assured that the science is settled. Wicked men have offended Mother Earth and she is getting hot under the collar. To deny this is heresy. Heretics must be cast out, silenced, deplatformed, unpersoned. We must unite to denounce and deny the deniers…at Newsweek!
Newsweek is certainly a member in good standing of the church of correct thinking. So how could it possibly be that they would blaspheme Anthropogenic Global Warming? Yet here is the evidence that they have transgressed [emphasis added]:

ICE AGES ARE CAUSED BY MASSIVE COLLISIONS OF EARTH’S CONTINENTS, STUDY SAYS
BY HANNAH OSBORNE ON 3/14/19 AT 2:00 PM EDT
A team of U.S. researchers has found that the last three major ice ages—which took place over 540 million years—were all preceded by massive tectonic pile-ups around the equator. Their findings, published in the journal Science, provide new insight into the causes of ice ages, which up until now were thought to relate to volcanic eruptions.
We are currently living in an ice age that began just over 2.5 million years ago. At present, we are in an interglacial period—where Earth goes through a warm period within an ice age.
At the moment, there is a zone in Indonesia where two tectonic plates are colliding. This could potentially be what was responsible for the current ice age—and why we have a cool climate and ice caps today.
The science is settled, so how dare Science publish such wrongthink? Was the editor asleep at Newsweek? Did Mark Steyn hack their server? Surely real scientists could never write such things! There must be a hoax or some conspiracy afoot! We must look to our high priestess AOC for protection and guidance in the Green New Way, lest civilization whither and blow away in the hot air.
Indeed, the Pope has apparently blessed the doctrinal soundness of Anthropogenic Global Warming. He has even pronounced a system of penances, or are they indulgences? @DonG asks “Is the Pope Catholic? Or is he a Gaiaist?” Perhaps the answer is “yes.” It would hardly be the first time religious authorities sprinkled holy water or waved incense over the pronouncements of secular powers.
