The AGW crowd is a mixed bag. There are some folks don’t know much for sure, but feel that it is better safe than sorry, so they buy carbon offsets. Others are absolutely sure that my minivan is a huge part of the problem and they have no qualms about asking me to give it up, my family of 6 be damned. Then there is this group: The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. Here is a taste…
“Each time another one of us decides to not add another one of us to the burgeoning billions already squatting on this ravaged planet, another ray of hope shines through the gloom.
When every human chooses to stop breeding, Earth’s biosphere will be allowed to return to its former glory, and all remaining creatures will be free to live, die, evolve (if they believe in evolution), and will perhaps pass away, as so many of Nature’s “experiments” have done throughout the eons. “
Notice the bold section if you will… There was a golden age for the earth… it was B.H., Before Humans. In Earth B.H. everything was glorious! Dying and evolving were joys to behold (though no one was there to behold them) and “experiments” passed away with nary a torch song. Ah, the good old days.
Someone asked me awhile back, “Why do Conservative Christians have such heartburn over manmade Global Warming?” I guess it is because just under the surface of every guy who wants to save flipper I sense this bubbling hatred of human life. (As an aside: I’d like to know if anyone has stats on a correlation between a firm belief in AGW and a firm belief in a right to abortion?)
Here is one reason Christians have such a hard time with AGW:
For thus says the LORD,
Who created the heavens,
Who is God,
Who formed the earth and made it,
Who has established it,
Who did not create it in vain,
Who formed it to be inhabited:
“ I am the LORD, and there is no other.
The earth was not formed for flipper, the bald eagle or the towering redwood tree. It was formed by God and for man! Haters.
