Evangelical Leaders Swinging Influence Behind Effort to Combat Global Warming
NEW YORK--A core group of influential evangelical leaders has put its considerable political power behind a cause that has barely registered on the evangelical agenda, fighting global warming.
These church leaders, scientists, writers and heads of international aid agencies argue that global warming is an urgent threat, a cause of poverty and a Christian issue because the Bible mandates stewardship of God's creation.
"I don't think God is going to ask us how he created the earth, but he will ask us what we did with what he created," Rev. Rich Cizik, vice president of government affairs of the National Association of Evangelicals, said.
