More on global warming and religion
While Iain is on the subject of Christianity and global warming, I’m reminded of this outburst by Rev. Gore (while Democratic senators’ heads nodded) during his March 21 Senate testimony as to why global warming is the moral challenge of our time:
I do believe that the Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. I believe that the purpose of life is to glorify God, and you cannot do it while heaping contempt on God’s creation. And I think that the joining of this debate by the evangelical and faith communities has been a very powerful factor changing the dynamics here.
