No they don't. They have belief that man made global warming is real because are taking the word of a handful of people who say that the man made global warming fairy tale is real and a bunch of people who happen to agree with them.

Believing in something is accepting it without evidence.
Many of them claim to have evidence God, Jesus or the Holy Ghost is real just as you claim to have evidence that the man made global warming fairy tale is real.
Christians believe in Jesus/God/Holy Ghost without any evidence whatsoever that these things exist -- and without any reasonable definition by which they could conceivably even get evidence.
There is no evidence that man made global warming is real and there is no evidence that it is real over what has been happening for billions of years on this planet on its own.
Global warming is supported by mountains of scientific evidence,
Those things can actually be proven. Regardless of the fact those things can be proven you either believe the earth is round and believe that gravity exists or you do not.
as is gravity, as is the notion that the Earth is a sphere. That is knowledge.
I and dictionary.com(which cites multiple sources) didn't say ceremony, it said practice. If drive a hybrid car because you think it will help stop global warming then it is a religious practice.
The driving of hybrid cars is not religious ceremony;
If you and a bunch of other people have set of beliefs and carry out activities because of those beliefs it is a religion. This is what a religion is "the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices".
it's strategy for reducing CO2s. A person would have to be totally out of touch with reality to regard that as religion. It's not the only strategy. There's car pooling, driving less, bicycling, taking public transportation, etc. These are all things that might be helpful, but have nothing to do with religion. They're just choices some people make.
the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs
People who believe in the man made global warming fairy tale.
the body of persons adhering to ........... practices
Driving hybrid cars.
buying recycled goods and or recyclable goods
Pushing for cap and trade
Spread the belief that man made global warming fairy tale is real.
donate money to environmental causes and studies on man made global warming
Carpooling and anything else done to combat man made global warming.
Again belief is to believe something to be true or honest. To know something is to perceive or understand as fact or truth . You believe that the man made global warming fairy tale is true despite the fact that climate change regardless if it is severe or minute has been going on for billions of years. And because of this belief you recycle, you drive hybrid cars, you probably foolishly buy organic produce, you insist on cap and trade, you insist on carbon credits and all sorts of other things associated with the belief in the man made global warming fairy tale.
In short, religion is belief. Science is knowledge. The former is based on faith, the latter is based on evidence.
You keep making the same idiotic bigoted statement that religion has to involve the belief in a deity,the supernatural,magic or some other related thing. Again Religion is a group of persons adhering to a certain set of beliefs and practices. To believe is to consider something to be true or honest. It doesn't matter if you think your evidence is real or not or how many people say your evidence is real.
