"The environmentalists who fight against the air pollution and global warming have found new allies among evangelicals," says the New York Times. With unexpected force, the National Association of Evangelicals, a non-profit organization, loyal support of the Republican Party, which represents 45 000 30 churches and millions of people throughout the country, wants to pressure the Congress to voting laws controlling carbon emissions. For evangelicals in fact, protection of the planet is one of the teachings of the Bible. According to Genesis, "God put man in the garden of Eden to take care of," cites Richard Cisik, vice president of the association, which states: "Therefore we need to add our voice to debate. "
"We always find in the Bible a passage which contradicts another," said James Inhofe, Republican elected Oklahoma and president of the commission of the Senate Environment, who doubts that climate change is linked to the activity human. This however takes seriously the words of the association, "because of its impact on people who generally vote Republican."
"Evangelicals can influence Congress and, if their interest in global warming increases, Senator Inhofe will listen," said John Green, head of a think tank on religion and public life. However, it notes that "evangelicals dislike conservationists".
