Climate Change Don't Matter With World's End Getting Near
OK, so the world didn't end as announced last May 21. But doomsday sayers don't quit. There's still the new rapture of October 21st and of course December 2012.
With all these talk of end of the world, a lot of people are now caring less about climate change.
According to a Pew poll, four in ten Americans think Jesus Christ will return to Earth by 2050.
That means more than 100 million Americans believe that Judgment Day is just around the corner.
This is actually really serious. While there are plenty of Christians who abide by the Holy Book when it tasked us with the responsibility to protect and care for all of God's creation, well over a third of Americans don't believe that there will be a world that needs saving by mid-century.
Or maybe it's got nothing to do with religion at all.
With financial issues to worry about, people are oblivious to seemingly “less important” things such as climate change.
This may well be a sad case of leaving religion to the religious, climate change to environmentalists, or each individual to his own business.
Until the rational faithful succeed in preaching the importance of protecting God's creation and help subdue the fantasy myths, we don't stand a chance in finding the public will to combat climate change.
