Procreation is killing the planet, and traditional religion is to blame, Global-Warming cultists insist.First the industrial revolution had to go. Then it was to the wall with oil company executives, those malignant Carbon Interests. Next, SUVs were declared enemies of the planet.
Now, the left’s attention has shifted back to its perennial targetsÂ – large families and “patriarchal” religion.
In a commentary in theÂ April 21st edition of USA TODAY (“Might our religion be killing us?”), Oliver “Buzz” Thomas quotes the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change — a tool of the global village idiots at the United Nations — to the effect that Global Warming, caused by CO2 emissions, will lead to “drought, starvation and species extinction.” (Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies… rivers and seas boiling…Â forty years of darkness… dogs and cats living together!)
The culprits are religions that oppose birth control and abortion and instruct us regarding fructification and multiplication. Thomas even names names: “Now, consider the Roman Catholic Church’s continued opposition to modern birth control or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’ (i.e. Mormons) encouragement of large families… . Many Orthodox Jews and some Muslims also eschew birth control.”

Pope Benedict XVI hasÂ issued a statement about moral implicationsÂ of the global warming hysteria. HeÂ characterizedÂ the approach of some environmentalists as dangerously dogmatic and naturally prone to irresponsible sensationalism.Â Read the entire translation of the Pope’s messageÂ from Libreria Editrice Vaticana here.Representing overÂ one billion Catholics worldwide, Pope Benedict XVI stands as one of very few world leaders to challenge the reasoning behind the burgeoning green movement.Â His courage in speaking out should cause much a needed worldwide civilized debate and discussion grounded in proven scientific research.

In a documentary aired August 23, 2007, by CNN and titled “God’s Warriors,” Richard Cizik, vice president for governmental affairs of the National Association of Evangelicals, said about evangelicals who disagree with his urgent appeals for action to fight global warming: Historically, evangelicals have reasoned like this: Scientists believe in evolution. Scientists are telling us climate change is real. Therefore, I won’t believe what scientists are saying.Â It’s illogical. It’s an erroneous kind of syllogism. But is that what’s been occurring?Â Absolutely.
That kind of statement, frankly, riles a lot of us. It would be interesting to see if Mr. Cizik can offer a single documented instance of a single notable evangelical critic of his views on global warming who has argued in any way remotely like that. As one of his foremost critics and someone in frequent contact with many others, I can testify that I know of not a single such instance.
But painting the critics of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) that way is nothing new in this controversy. We are routinely called “deniers,” the intent being to associate us with Holocaust deniers. We are said to ignore science, to oppose the stewardship of creation, to fly in the face of an overwhelming consensus of scientists from around the world who have studied the issue and come to the firm conclusion that human action (mainly burning fossil fuels and thus adding to atmospheric carbon dioxide) is the primary cause of a recent global warming that is beyond the bounds of natural variability and threatens to become catastrophic, especially for the world’s poor.
