The difference between magic and faith is that magic seeks to control the forces of life -- natural and supernatural, while faith seeks to submit to and cooperate with the authority and power of a beneficent Creator.
In centuries past persons would consult a witch, pay a fee, and cast a spell to secure a desirable outcome. (This occult practice continues today.)
In other words, you could control the natural world, but first you had to pay.
Which brings us to today and the great pending global warming shake-down.
Yes, we can control the natural world.
But first, we gotta pay.
According to Drudge, the cost of combatting global warming is going to be $45,000,000,000. That's 45 Billion dollars.
(Did I say 45 Billion? My bad. The amount cited is $45,000,000,000,000. That's 45 Trillion -- 45 Billion - you wish!)
With the ideology of global warming gaining hurricane force, we better all get ready to cough up.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
