This is science, not religion, and religion only muddles an already badly muddled debate. Occasionally religious leaders have a place in the public arena, for instance to represent otherwise disfranchised people – the Southern Christian Leadership Council, for instance – but otherwise religious people should stay in their temples and pray or jump around or do whatever they do, and not bother the intelligent minority who are trying to figure this problem out.

The lie that climate change action is expensive ignores the fact that NOT acting is even more expensive, and will hurt the world’s poor the most.

Any religious person left, right or center, ought to consider the least of us in their concerns, no?
