The 'climate change cult'

Watts Up With That:
...
1. Climate doomsayers believe they possess truths about the past, present and future and their truths cannot be disputed by anyone.

2. Doomsayers refuse to debate their belief. They call their dogma “settled science” and attack any critics that dare to whisper in the dark.

3. Just like a cult, doomsayers has a formal doctrine-setting body — not unlike the Jones’ circle of advisors. The reports by the “ruling” body are thought to be the main source of authority and the texts of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are quoted as unholy scripture.

4. Staying with the Jonestown analogy, the climate change alarmists have created mythologies intentionally built on lies and half-truths. The fallacy can be ascribed as an appeal to everyday experiences, giving the listener some sense of truth-based teaching to mix with the soup of confusion.

Just as Jones and his small leadership group built lies on a foundation of lies and misinformation, the “sky-is-falling-crowd” spreads hoaxes to support their form of theology.
...
There is much more.

The climate change cult is similar to other end of the world cults especially in the religious fervor with which it pushes its dogma.  Opponents are viewed as "heretics' and "deniers."  Both are the language of religious cults and are meant to insult those who disagree with them rather than engage in a dialog.  The piece also has a lengthy list of haxes related to the beliefs of the cult.
