"The nine scariest words in the English language are 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help'". Those are the words of former Pres. Ronald Wilson Reagan. He understood that free market capitalism will always protect its future. It won't allow itself to be wiped out. The greedy are the ones who hurt the capitalist method and should be dealt with accordingly. Capitalism and greed are not synonymous terms. True capitalism works wherever it is implemented.
There are world leaders out there who are determined to undermine the rights of the individual through incremental regulation of phantom crisis like global warming, climate change and so on by using fake, unproven science. People all over the world, from British Lords to renowned climatologists, are coming out on the subject and crying foul against the onslaught of misinformation designed to rob humanity of its distinct inalienable rights given to all men and women.
As for Christianity, it goes without saying that we ought to choose to keep our environment clean. We should pollute less and recycle more. We should seek to continuously find ways of being good stewards of the earth. However, just as we didn't buy into the "global cooling" hoax of the seventies we remain steadfast and firm on the word of God which boldly declares without apology that as long as the earth remains there will be no end to seed time and harvest time. Alarmism is unacceptable. It causes people to believe absurdities and gives license to others to commit atrocities. The Bible will have the final word on the subject. That is Christian environmentalism.
