VIDEO: Belief in Climate Change a 'Pagan Religion'

In Paris, I interviewed philosopher and writer Pascal Bruckner, author of the new book, Le Fantisme de l'Apocalypse (The Fanaticism of the Apocalypse).

Bruckner, who supports protecting the environment, calls the belief in a catastropic climate change scenario a "pagan religion," in which "Mother Earth is suffering," man "has sinned and must be punished," and the punishment will be an environmental apocalypse.

I also used some of Bruckner's comments in my piece on climate change as an article of faith in Europe.
