Christians and Climate Change

OK. I don't really know how to break this to you. But climate change, to the extent that we're experiencing it today, is REAL, and HUMANS CAUSED IT.

I know. You need to sit down now, right? It's going to be OK.

When you've finished composing yourself, please call up your freaky white evangelical Christian brother, sister-in-law, auntie, or parent, and share the news.

Yes, his/her understanding of science is very hazy. Yes, he/she probably thinks that scientific proof carries about as much weight as myth and stories. Yes, he/she has been brainwashed by creationism and abstinence only programming. All we can do to save these people is to keep chipping away at their ignorance. I know that sounds pretty evangelical, but the earth people. The EARTH is our ONLY RESOURCE.

Thank mother earth for the Pew Foundation. Keepin' it real since 1948.
