Global Warming is a religion!

As the rhetoric before the G8 meeting warms the planet up, the BBC reports that the UK government is still positive about an "outcome" to the talks on global warming. But the best "soundbite" of the day goes to UK Environment Secretary, Margaret Beckett, who is quoted as saying "the summit's aim is to secure a general agreement rather than concentrating on an "exact theology" of climate change issues".

What is an "exact theology"?

Beckett is an important and loyal member of the Labour Party, having trade union links and at one time voting as a left wing hard liner. More recently she has moved toward the center. She trained as a metallurgist but has spent most of her adult life in politics.
