I don't care what god or gods you believe in.
I don't care what faith you belong to.
But I do care when your denial of reality impacts my life and my future.
America is the only major nation on Earth where almost half of the population denies the existence of anthropogenic climate change and religious fundamentalists have played a significant role in preventing action to mitigate climate change:https://www.theverge.com/2018/3/29/17173166/climate-change-perception-gallup-poll-politics-psychologyhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/trump-administration-sees-a-7-degree-rise-in-global-temperatures-by-2100/2018/09/27/b9c6fada-bb45-11e8-bdc0-90f81cc58c5d_story.htmlhttp://apps.washingtonpost.com/g/documents/national/national-highway-traffic-safety-administrations-2100-climate-scenario/3218/
On its current course, the planet will warm a disastrous 7 degrees by the end of this century.
A rise of 7 degrees Fahrenheit, or about 4 degrees Celsius, compared with pre-industrial levels would be catastrophic, according to scientists. Many coral reefs would dissolve in increasingly acidic oceans. Parts of Manhattan and Miami would be underwater without costly coastal defenses. Extreme heat waves would routinely smother large parts of the globe.
But the administration did not offer this dire forecast as part of an argument to combat climate change. Just the opposite: The analysis assumes the planet’s fate is already sealed.
I don't care if you believe in the Rapture, Armageddon or some other ridiculous eschatological nonsense but leave the rest of us out of it.
