Well, After All, It is a Religious Position

Since there's no actual evidence for environmental problems: Maryland environmental advocates take anti-fracking, climate-change positions to church
As environmental advocates in Maryland push for a statewide ban on the controversial gas-drilling technique known as fracking, they are seeking to recast environmentalism from a political objective to a moral imperative by making their case in church.

More than 40 faith leaders across the state answered that call during the weekend with sermons that emphasized stewardship of the planet as part of the "Climate in the Pulpits/on the Bimah" campaign.

The Prince of Peace Baptist Church in McElderry Park, where Hargrove is pastor, has installed a rain garden on its property, he said, and is taking steps to ensure that upcoming renovations are done in the most environmentally friendly way.
. . .
He said he is encouraging his congregation to consider taking small steps, such as recycling, using LED lights and planting trees in the neighborhood, to better care for the Earth.
I urge them all to cut off all heat and cooling at their churches for the next year. And no travel using internal combustion engines for church functions.
