I Always Knew Global Warming Invoked Some Sort Of Religious Fervor

Evangelical Leaders Join Global Warming Initiative.

And the New York Times just laps it all up. But at least, as the article points out, some religious groups are concerned with keeping the science separate from the religion:

E. Calvin Beisner, associate professor of historical theology at Knox Theological Seminary in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., helped organize the opposition into a group called the Interfaith Stewardship Alliance. He said Tuesday that "the science is not settled" on whether global warming was actually a problem or even that human beings were causing it. And he said that the solutions advocated by global warming opponents would only cause the cost of energy to rise, with the burden falling most heavily on the poor.

It wouldn't be so disturbing if the Times just supported the theories of global warming. What's frightening is the way that news on global warming is reported with such religious dogmatism.
