Read this article from the London Times entitled: An experiment that hints we are wrong on climate change.
Another post I need to write is how conservative political philosophy in America has come to be regarded as Christian philosophy. The environment is one of those areas that we have given over, and given up on as Evangelicals. Now there is a discussion that needs to happen. Imagine, our first commandment in the Bible (which arguably may be the only commandment in the Bible) is being spurned by the modern Christian. Do you know any Christians who belong to environmental groups? Do you know of any Christian environmental groups? I would say you do not, mostly because you view environmental issues and environmentalists as “whackos” to quote you know who. Careful you don’t formulate your whole world view based on radio talk show hosts.
Regardless of what you “think” the cause of global warming is, there is no excuse for Christians not caring for the earth, whatever that might mean. We better start discussing it, not because of a doomsday fear, but because we fear God, the maker of heaven and earth.

My good friend Roy Goble and his wife D’aun started the Christian Environmental Association, and Gordon Aeschliman also a friend from college days was the President of CEA for a while.
