In a previous blog, “Camping Out at the Carnival of Climate Denial,” I discussed how we seem to have come to a strange place as a society on climate change, where scientists have been telling us for over a decade how serious the problem is, and lately they’ve been telling us that unless major changes are begun soon, dangerous tipping points could be reached that could produce devastating dynamics that cannot be “undone.” And yet instead of listening to these warnings from the experts, too many of us are stuck at the carnival of climate denial, allowing the carnival barkers and hucksters to entice and intimidate us into staying, and helping to immobilize our country’s response in the process.
It is well past time for those of us still at the carnival of climate denial to exit the gates and allow the love of God to help us see and face the truth about climate change or global warming and the need to act. Once we do, we will discover that overcoming global warming presents us with tremendous opportunities to love God back and create a better world.
The puffington reverend should review his ten commandments. CO2/IPCC worship might not be such a good idea
you shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth
You shall not bow down to them or worship them
