    That's kinda the same where I am going aswell. The uni I go to is big on business and the environment - so we get a clash.
    The business area claims to be teaching "environmentally friendly methods"
    But the students who have studied both areas (environment and business) say otherwise.

    But just in the Environment course ( though they seem to focus more on sustainablitly). We have regularly had debates on different sides of environmental/ global warming issues.

    Well, we can't deny that there was a reaction can we?
    A good reaction.

    Those events are organised by the students/teachers of political studies.
    There are debates about all sorts of things almost every week.

    That's not completely true. Global warming isn't just related to pollution.

    Actually, this ISN'T what were talking about... The first post to this thread was this...

    Recently I have been listening to people defending man made global warming against skeptics and I am being reminded strongly of fanatical religious discussions defending religion against skeptics. For them it is something one shouldn't even question. It appears to have become a matter of blind faith.

    So as I was wondering to myself if it had become a matter of "religion" for many I discovered an article that hit upon what I was thinking.

    World Watch by Orson Scott Card


    So what do you think? Has belief in Global Warming risen to levels of religious fervor? Is it something that "must be believed" without question or is it simply a matter of some political debate?
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.
