Godliness is Greenie-ness

ALL Bible-reading Christians should be "greenies" because "creation carries the imprint of the maker", says the head of World Vision Australia, the Reverend Tim Costello.

Speaking at the start of a national day of prayer on climate change yesterday, Mr Costello said it was incumbent on Christians to take the problem of global warming seriously, and to battle cynicism and despair.

"World Vision has 40,000 staff around the world … they are saying the same thing: the droughts are longer, the monsoons when they come are floods, we used to get two crops a year, now … one. These stories seem to correlate with what the science is saying."

His remarks stand in stark contrast to a speech given a fortnight ago by the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell, who told a Westminster audience that efforts to rein in global warming were a sign of "hubris" and would be as "misdirected" as the efforts of Babylonians to construct the ill-fated tower of Babel.
