Why has the global warming dogma become so politically correct?
Being on the politically correct side of the climate change issue has become a litmus test for where a person stands on a whole collection of humanist issues. Solving the great global warming threat has become urgent because any change in the weather is frightening to materialists who have bought into the lie that "all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation" (2 Peter 3:44, NKJ). The global warming faithful don't recognize that Almighty God is in control.
Fixing climate change is now seen by many as the most important objective for mankind. The people behind this agenda are driven by their emotions ignoring the evidence that global warming is not be caused by human activity. They pursue a solution for global warming with a religious fervor seeking to rally the whole world around this problem. Since climate change is seen as a global problem, the whole world needs to be united in solving it. Indeed, solving the global warming problem will be a great monument to human achievement.
The prevailing attitude involved here reminds me of another time people came together for a great human achievement: "they said, 'Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth'" (Genesis 11:4, NIV). As people thought they could reach God by coming together and pooling their efforts, people today think they can achieve their on deliverance by rallying the world around the global warming problem. The idea that mankind is causing global warming is a religion that may not be contradicted.
Those who have the religion of global warming certainly fear what is coming on the earth because the mild global warming that is seen today is but a foreshadowing of the real global warming that God will send on the earth... "the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men" (2 Peter 3:7, NIV).
