God controls the climate

Lisa Vox wants to know why Christians are less concerned about global warming.
Besides the obvious - they Who created our climate.
"As a Christian, I believe that there is a creator in God who is much bigger than us," Republican Rep. Tim Walberg, told constituents at a town hall in Coldwater, Mich. "And I'm confident that, if there's a real problem, he can take care of it."
Among conservative evangelicals, that is not an unusual opinion. Nearly all evangelicals -- 88 percent, according to the Pew Research Center on Religion & Public Life -- believe in miracles, suggesting a faith in a proactive God. And only 28 percent of evangelicals believe human activity is causing climate change. Confidence that God will intervene to prevent people from destroying the world is one of the strongest barriers to gaining conservative evangelical support for environmental pacts like the Paris agreement.
Those who oppose Trump ought to be happy that he's not trying out for the role of Antichrist.
