Politics: Pop Theologians discover junk science, phone White House.

A whole bunch of alleged "religious conservatives" were herded into thinking about global warming by a poll circulated among them by their Concerned Leaders. Of the 1,000 polled, two-thirds reported that they were "convinced that global warming was taking place." Unreported is the percentage that were convinced that Touched By An Angel was a great TV show.

Among other recommendations of the signatories:

1) Load two of every kind of animal onto the USS Nimitz, just in case the whole CO2 Credits thing doesn't play with The Almighty, and

2) At least one Righteous Man should be relocated by the government to San Francisco, to prevent Laura Bush from being turned into a pillar of salt.

www.christiansandclimate.org/polling:

"The findings show that while only 19% of all evangelicals feel they know a lot about the issue, almost two-thirds are either completely or mostly convinced that global warming is actually taking place. In addition, seven out of ten believe global climate change will pose a serious threat to future generations.

Sixty-three percent believe that while global warming may be a long-term issue, the problem is being caused today, so we must start addressing it immediately. Half went so far as to say steps need to be taken to reduce global warming, even if there is a high economic cost to the U.S."

Perhaps if we take a collective breath, it will cause these polling test dummies who think the government should end global warming--something few of them profess to knowing much about--to fall into oxygen-deprived inactivity.

There's global warming on Mars, some of the ice-caps are receding - so it's not just us having a certian proximity to a local celestial nuclear fireball, it must be NASA's fault...
