Climate change has been one of the most hotly debated topics in the scientific community and beyond. Many fear global warming is the greatest threat to mankind.
At a major climate conference in Copenhagen early in December, President Obama promised world leaders that the U.S. would cut greenhouse gas emissions over the next 10 years.
But that conference was held under a huge cloud of controversy. In addition to violent clashes between protesters and riot police, a recent scandal involving thousands of leaked e-mails at a leading British climate research facility spurred doubts about the validity of global warming claims.
Still, 'going green' has become somewhat of a commericalized mantra in 2009. And many Christians do believe mankind has a responsibility to be good stewards of the resources God gave us.
