Evangelicals cold about global-warming positioncomment (0)

February 2, 2006

WASHINGTON — Some prominent evangelical leaders have signed an open letter to the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), asking it not to take an official position on global warming.

“Global warming is not a consensus issue, and our love for the Creator and respect for his creation does not require us to take a position,” reads the letter signed by Prison Fellowship founder Chuck Colson, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson and 20 others.

The letter was circulated by the Interfaith Stewardship Alliance, a new Washington-based coalition that in November issued a report that challenged the idea that there is a scientific consensus on climate change. “We are evangelicals and we care about God’s creation,” the letter reads. “However, we believe that there should be room for Bible-believing evangelicals to disagree about the cause, severity and solutions to the global warming issue.” Richard Cizik, vice president for governmental affairs of the NAE, said the NAE is not planning to take a position on the issue.
