According to this news article:
The 43-year-old computer consultant is an evangelical Christian who says he believes that a warming planet is "one of the signs" of Jesus Christ's imminent return for Judgment Day.The scary thing is that there are probably a significant number of Americans who actually think this way.
The real problem is not just that certain kinds of evangelicals view the world's ecological and international problems as positive signs of the impending end of the world and glorious return of Jesus. It is the implications of this belief that really matter. This kind of religious outlook leads many people to take dangerously obstructionist actions that seek to prevent the nation and the world from making serious efforts at solving these problems.
