Love Thy Neighbor

by William Yeatman on March 20, 2008

Counterbalancing the recent declaration from the Southern Baptist Environment & Climate Initiative, a group of conservative leaders have sent a letter to every U.S. senator, opposing climate-change legislation.  Among those signers are Richard Land, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.

The letter cites studies showing federally mandated CO2 reductions in the Warner-Lieberman bill would increase the price of food (costs borne most heavily by the poor), eliminate millions of jobs, raise household costs for families, raise energy prices (including gasoline and electricity prices), and slow economic growth.

Not exactly prudent care for Creation — at least not the human part of it.
