3/11 - Good Lord! Could Evangelicals (and crabbers) be saviors on the global warming front?

No less a news outlet than the NY Times thinks it sees a possible emerging pattern in American society -- that Evangelicals, 30 million strong, may be starting to believe global warming is an impending threat and its time to take it seriously. This is rather amazing. Here's an excerpt:

Mr. Cizik and Mr. Ball then asked Sir John to speak at a small meeting of evangelical leaders in June in Maryland called by the Evangelical Environmental Network, the National Association of Evangelicals and Christianity Today, the magazine. The leaders read Scripture and said they were moved by three watermen who caught crabs in Chesapeake Bay and said their faith had made them into environmentalists.
