Respected environmental author Bill McKibben on the US religious right's denial of human influence on climate change, and their attack on faith groups (especially mainstream evangelicals) who are taking up the issue: "[James] Dobson, [Jerry] Falwell, and their ilk are the voice of a Christianity so deeply compromised by its embrace of American materialism that it needs to treat as a threat our brothers and sisters in Christ who come bearing the news of physics and chemistry. Rich Cizik has been faithful in reading the signs of the times, and so it is unsurprising he is under attack. But one way or another, his moral clarity will prevail."

See: Drowning your neighbours? and Dobson and friends get personal on global warming.
