Mythical Carbon Pollution Is “An Affront To God” Or Something

No, seriously

At EPA Hearing, Religious Leaders Call Carbon Pollution ‘An Affront To God’

Speaking to three administrators for the Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday, David Kepley, an elder and deacon at the Providence Presbyterian Church, quoted Leviticus.

“God said ‘the land is mine; with me you are but aliens and tenants,’” he said. “‘Throughout the land that you hold, you shall provide for the redemption of the land.’”

The verses, Kepley said, allude to several themes. For one, God has encouraged us not just to draw sustenance from the land, but to replenish it — to act as stewards of Creation. For another, the verses compare humans to “renters” in God’s house, meaning we can’t just trash God’s house with unmitigated pollution.

“To me this means that to be wasteful of the land’s bounty or to despoil it with substances that are harmful to people or other life forms is not just unproductive, but is an affront to God,” Kepley said. “In my view, the EPA has identified one of those areas where we humans have ignored our role as good stewards of the Creation.”

On one hand, he’s right on Mankind’s role in protecting the environment, from a religious point of view. On the other hand, CO2 is not a pollutant, otherwise, why would God have created it? Why would God have allowed there to be higher CO2 concentrations during most of the Earth’s history?

I wonder if someone asked the good deacon Kepley how, exactly, he traveled from Providence, whichever one he’s from, along with the other 27 religious leaders? Anyone think they walked? Or took some sort of fossil fueled travel. Yeah, that last one is not a question.

“In the religious communities with which I work, people are heart-sick about the role of fossil fuels in producing the heat-trapping gases that are causing climate change,” said Joelle Novey, the director of Interfaith Power & Light, a non-profit that engages religious communities on climate issues. “They are working to reduce their electricity use in their sanctuaries and at home. They are climbing up on ladders to change to more efficient lightbulbs. They are working together to support clean energy through their energy bills.”

Interfaith Power & Light covers the D.C. Maryland, and Northern Virginia area. Remember how the people in that area went ballistic the last few times they lost power from storms? They want their power.

Really, the whole thing is silly, but, unfortunately, growing, as hardcore Leftists infiltrate organized religion, embracing idiotic, non-scientific, Progressive political issues, and pushing them on their flocks and the public, attempting to say “this is what God wants”.

BTW, still not statistically significant warming over the past 17 years and 10 months.

    Teach “God” created many bad things.
    Remember he wiped oy just about everything with that Great Flood
    Right? when was that anyway? The bible says about 5000 years ago

    John- If they’re measuring with satellites, that’s only been done since about 1979. So if it’s Arctic minimum or Arctic maximum, it doesn’t really mean much either way. Quit a few years of Arctic ice that can’t be comparably studied before 1979.

  5. A number of years ago, back when the whole global warming thing was just heating up, I read a serious article (from a reliable source) about how the environmental movement was going after religious groups by using the idea that God gave man dominion over the Earth, and it was up to religious people to stop global warming and save the planet — or something like that. I think I printed it out, but could never find it again. But I feel confident that that’s what they did, successfully. Crass.
