Global Warming: Religion, Spirituality and Nature’s Laws

"More than ever, it is time for us to move from religiosity to spirituality, which means replacing the sole belief in God with the knowledge of divine laws – that is, universal, natural, and spiritual laws. The well-being we seek, including on a material plane, is to be found in this knowledge and in the wisdom that ensues. An ancient Rosicrucian adage says, “It is from ignorance and ignorance alone that humans must free themselves.” Ignorance is at the origin of the worst things a person can do to oneself, to others, and to one’s environment. It is also the source of different superstitions that demean humanity and prevent it from finding complete fulfillment. Therefore give a spiritual direction to your life. Do not just be a living thing, be a living soul." 

In my mind, this includes denying basic physical laws such as those that describe the blanketing of infrared radiation by carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Also included is understanding cycles such as the carbon cycle, hydrological cycle, Milankovitch cycle, etcetera which are important in understanding of natural climate cycles.
