The Environmentalist Movement (EM) is inherently humanistic because its proposed solutions to problems always require more laws and government regulations always at the expense of free markets, private property rights and wealth creation. This is sufficient evidence of the inherent anti-Christian nature of the EM.And here's another great essay by Joseph D’Aleo. 12 facts about global climate change that you won't read in the popular press:
But the EM is also inherently pantheistic. They pretend that the “nature worship” is only around the edges of the Movement and even many Christians pretend that Gaia worship is only around the fringes of Environmentalism because these Christians want to appear as intellectually respectable as possible by embracing as much of the EM as possible. But Pantheism is in fact central to the whole EM. Elementary to Environmentalist Movement thinking is a radical repositioning of the role of man in the world in terms of his relationship to the rest of creation and the analysis of man’s impact on the world. Since man is God’s vice-regent, having been delegated authority to rule over this world, attempts to reposition man also necessarily reposition God, tearing Him off His throne and casting Him to the ground. Environmentalism, then, elevates the natural world over God and man in importance and also for worship.
Oh, sure, it's those who dispute Al Gore's "inconvenient truth" that are at odds with science.
- Temperatures have been cooling since 2002, even as carbon dioxide has continued to rise.
- Carbon dioxide is a trace gas and by itself will produce little warming. Also, as CO2 increases, the incremental warming is less, as the effect is logarithmic so the more CO2, the less warming it produces.
- CO2 has been totally uncorrelated with temperature over the last decade, and significantly negative since 2002.
- CO2 is not a pollutant, but a naturally occurring gas. Together with chlorophyll and sunlight, it is an essential ingredient in photosynthesis and is, accordingly, plant food.
