Conservatives often say that leftists treat climate change like it’s a religion.
While speaking at the far left Center for American Progress, Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono seemed to confess to admit this.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Dem Senator: Believe in Climate Change Like a Religion
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) on Tuesday called for liberal activists to believe in climate change as if it were a “religion.”
Hirono said on Tuesday that liberals will need to show zeal for environmental issues if they are going to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020. At an event hosted by the Center for American Progress, Hirono told the audience to “Believe in climate change as though it’s a religion, it’s not, it’s science.”
“Get people out to vote, so that we can have people here who truly are committed to human rights, environmental rights,” Hirono said at the event.
Hirono has been a vocal advocate of the Green New Deal introduced by Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.). The Hawaii senator called it a “bold national framework” in February.

Prayer breakfast? These people wouldn't know a bible if someone hit them over the head with it.

DACA “Prayer Breakfast”. OK 🙄. Worship “Dreamers”, climate change… as long as it isn’t God they’re cool.

Well it is a cult. A scientist just lost her job because she reported polar bear populations are good

Even they know the science doesn't support their claims, so now they have to treat it as a religion to keep people reeled in. All to hide that it is a massive money and power grab that will hurt the poorest people most.

That last tweet sums things up perfectly.
