Gaia is Winning Converts in Unlikely Places

One Roman Catholic priest in the UK can see the writing on the wall, there’s a new God in town and he is going to get on board early:

Forgotten to recycle any newspapers or tin cans recently? Feeling guilty because you neglected to carbon offset your flight to somewhere, anywhere, outside England this summer?

The Roman Catholic Church is at hand with a new line in “green confessions” to help eco-sinners to find forgiveness.

Dom Anthony Sutch, the Benedictine monk who resigned as head of Downside School to become a parish priest in Suffolk, will be at the county’s Waveney Greenpeace festival this weekend to hear eco-confessions in what is thought to be the first dedicated confessional booth of its kind.

No word yet on how many Hail Marys or Our Fathers you have to say for a trip on a private jet.

Related: Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio’s eco-doom movie may be the film equivalent of Hell on Earth.

His environmental documentary, "The 11th Hour," has been a total bust at the box office. After 18 days in release, the film has grossed only $417,913 from ticket sales. The 90-minute snore-fest is playing on 111 screens this week, but that number is likely to be reduced this Friday. The film will be sent to DVD heaven after that.

A Russian filmmaker told us afterward that she was the only person in the room who was awake at one point.

I wonder what the carbon emission damage was to make that piece of crap?
