On Climate Change, Americans Trust Politics Above Preachers

The Pope strikes out on climate in the U.S.

“In a 2010 Pew survey, Americans were asked whether religion influenced their thinking on tougher laws and regulations to protect the environment. Just over 5 percent said yes.” [NPR]

  1. In my own case, I believe in the Scriptural injunction to good stewardship (I know that phrase doesn’t appear in quite those terms). “Good stewardship” doesn’t really tie in to climate change because human activity doesn’t drive climate, even if the Pope says it does.
    I trust neither politicians nor preachers on most environmental issues, actually.
