Michael Crichton makes some excellent points about the idea that contemporary environmentalism isn’t about science so much as it is about religion:

Looked at through the eyes of an anthropologist, his views make real sense; environmentalism through that lens has the hallmarks of religion. Perhaps that’s why questioning of some of the predominant viewpoints on global warming, for instance, evokes not a rationed argument, but emotional explosions. Call it “environmental fundamentalism”.
