Goracle Gushings on Faith-Based Science

USA Today Magazine;Jan2008, Vol. 136 Issue 2752, p10
The author comments on the emergence of faith-based arguments and science on the threat of global warming to mankind. Former U.S. vice president Al Gore's admiring fans call him The Goracle, a fitting title because, although he cloaks himself in the mantle of science, his belief in human-induced global warming is faith-based. Another faith-based actor on the environmental stage is John Houghton. In 1988, when the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was formed, he became the chair for scientific assessment.
