Cross and Earth

It looks like Bush might even be losing some of his religious right these days. A group of 85 evangelical Christian leaders are supporting a bill that would curb America’s emissions of green house gases. The article pulls a great stat that really puts our place in causing global warming in perspective:

The United States, with around 5 percent of the world’s population, accounts for a quarter of its greenhouse gases and U.S. emissions rose by 2 percentage points in 2004 alone, according to government figures.

Deutsch probably tried to silence those figures.


  1. To strengthen their position, the Evangelicals have sided with liberals against President Bush and his rejection to the restrictive and economically damaging Kyoto Protocol. Make no mistake, this is a powerful movement. With extremists on both sides of the issue pushing for the same outcome, there will certainly be an unending supply of ideas and agendas to promote.

    Taking better care of our Earth could be a joyous and opportunity-rich agenda.

    I’m confused… I thought President Bush WAS an Evangelical… at least, that’s what he said. And he wouldn’t lie, would he?

    …Interesting how the first attacks against plans to curb global warming are always economic. “Don’t prevent ecological disaster, because then we won’t make as much money.”

    About global warming, fear not brothers and sisters in Christ

    Genesis 8:22 “As long as the earth endures,
    seedtime and harvest,
    cold and heat,
    summer and winter,
    day and night
    will never cease.”
