This is Don. I hijacked this post so that I could share some of the links that I used for the show today, in case anyone else wants to follow some of the details.
The show idea came from David Swanson, “Why We Allow the Destruction of our Planet” in The Humanist magazine. Another good article is How the Religious Right is Fueling Climate Change Denial. Another prominent point came from this disturbing Newsweek poll on end-times belief.
Some of the Christian climate crazy is tracked at Right Wing Watch.
John Shimkus is a powerful Congressman who has had some nutty things to say about whether climate change is real.
James Inhofe is pretty sure climate change is a hoax, though he seems to be in the pocket of those with vested interests.
Some ministries have done multimedia presentations calling scientists idolaters and communists.
John Hagee, who peddles end-time snuff porn as part of his ministry is pretty convinced that bad weather is just all part of the plan.
