Evangelicals warn of Global Warming

One of the stereotypes about Evangelical Christians is that we are only concerned with saving individuals souls for an other-worldly heaven and are for that reason not concerned with environmental issues.

Unfortunately this has often been the case among individuals (some I know) who, for whatever reason, think that being conservative or evangelical (or both) with regards to their theology naturally entails being politically conservative or believing everything that they hear on conservative talk radio. But not so.

So, just to break down inaccurate stereotypes, allow me to introduce The Evangelical Climate Initiative, dedicated because of their belief in the authority of the Bible as God's Word to fighting global warming: http://www.christiansandclimate.org/ . Their statement "Climate Change: An Evangelical Call to Action" explains their position.

Would be great but the NAE and the Southern Baptists refused to sign on because they believe global warming is a bunch of liberal-bias left-wing wacko huey! :)

So I guess there is dissention in the ranks
