More proof that global "warming" is a religion

Or, more accurately, like a cult. From (not surprisingly) California:
Visitors to the Gaia (you just can't make this kind of stuff up, folks! - Ed.) Napa Valley Hotel and Spa won't find the Gideon Bible in the nightstand drawer. Instead, on the bureau will be a copy of "An Inconvenient Truth," former Vice President Al Gore's book about global warming.

They'll also find the Gaia equipped with waterless urinals, solar lighting and recycled paper as it marches toward becoming California's first hotel certified as "green," or benevolent to the environment. Similar features are found 35 miles south at San Francisco's Orchard Garden Hotel, which competes for customers with neighboring luxury hotels like the Ritz-Carlton and Fairmont.

"I'm not your traditional Birkenstocks and granola type of guy," (of COURSE you're not! - Ed.) said Stefan Muehle, general manager of the Orchard Garden, who said green measures are reducing energy costs as much as 25 percent a month. "We're trying to dispel the myth that being green and being luxurious are mutually exclusive."

I do hope they ignore Sheryl Crow and have more than one square of butt ribbon per bathroom.
