Religionists Have Weighed In On Global Warming

Pope Francis has, of course, made his statement that global warming is anthropogenic and that as a moral act we are required to do something about it.

But he is not alone.  Some Evangelicals have been energized.  Still, most Evangelicals are not so convinced

Polls suggest that evangelicals are the American religious group least likely to believe that global warming is real or caused by humans. Many of them are politically conservative and are influenced by groups that question established climate science and defend the rising use of fossil fuels.

So there is likely some ways to go to get most Christians behind the movement to solve the global warming crisis.  But the support of Pope Francis and the Evangelicals For Climate Action gives us hope.
