Fundamentalists Wrong on Environment

When fundamentalist wackos like Pat Robertson are wrong about climate change and global warming, it really solidifies the inference that religious fundamentalists are wrong about every anti-science claim they make.

The simple question to obtuse fools like this is "Do you believe in gravity?"

You don't have to. Science shows it is a fact of reality.

The assertion that climate change and global warming are characteristics of Earth regardless of humans over time periods of millions of years is true. However, to deny that humanity is not accelerating aspects of the climate change is sheer ignorance and ignores the crisis we are living in today.

Unfortunately, humanity doesn't have time to wait for the rest of the fundamentalists to get a sign from their imaginary superior before action needs to be taken.

Humanity needs to evolve from the technology of industry and apply efficient, renewable, zero-carbon solutions before it is too late. That is not a scare tactic, that is a scientific conclusion based upon environmental observation.

Thankfully, Pat saw some light, although it is based on a temperature map in a newspaper rather than the science behind climate change and global warming. Regardless, I applaud is 'revalation'. Maybe he'll start 'believing' in evolution, too.
