We’re taking for granted the fact that people know in this day and age how important it is. .  .  . We probably need to remind them that the abundance we’re fighting to save is their heritage. It is a heritage they got from God.

Perhaps it’s only reasonable that global-warming activists would turn to God for help as the scientific case for their position collapses. As if -Climategate had never happened, the council report asserts with blind faith: “Adequately addressing global climate change—through better and more extensive partnerships with nonprofits and other efforts—will result, for example, in less migration, fewer refugee crises, and greater food security.” The swollen Red Sea will part, the waters of Noah’s greenhouse-gas-fueled flood will recede, and the meek shall inherit the earth. All it takes is a little federal infiltration of America’s houses of worship.

Meghan Clyne is the managing editor of National Affairs.
