'Environmental Discrimination'

Just read this article

The headline;

Worker wins £100,000 after 'environmental discrimination'

A worker has won almost £100,000 because his firm discriminated against his environmental views after a landmark legal ruling placed them on a par with religious beliefs.

An extract;

Tim Nicholson, 42, was made redundant in July 2008 from his £77,000-a-year post as head of sustainability with Grainger, the UK’s biggest residential landlord.

He was preparing to sue his former employer, alleging that his redundancy was a direct result of his green opinions about the dangers of climate change - which put him at odds with other senior executives within the firm.

At a preparatory hearing last year, a judge ruled that his belief in climate change was legally akin to a religious belief and should be protected from discrimination.

Well people have said that climate change has turned into a religion. Can it now becoming legal?

How the hell is belief in climate change the same as belief in a religion?

Who is their god, Al Gore?

Is this a late April fools joke?

I thought science and religion don't make good bed fellows.
