Dispatches from Upside Down World

Some days, there’s so much nonsense floating by. This is when I say we’ve slipped into Upside Down World, where we humans seem willing to push the planet to absurd extremes, risking our survival, because we’re just too stupid, greedy, stubborn or short-sighted to find better ways.
Take Rick Santorum telling his audiences that the earth is here for man, not the other way around.
I don’t think Santorum is stupid or greedy, but like most politicians, he’s working an angle. With this earth/man pitch, he’s obviously trying to appeal to Christians who believe that “man” (I would have once assumed that included woman; not so sure this week) has been placed by God to be above all other creatures, and therefore all things on earth.

Interfaith Power & Light promotes Global Warming Preach-In

IPL unites all religions in the fight for a cleaner, more sustainable future.

Interfaith Power&Light, a coalition of religious groups that promotes stewardship of the earth and energy conservation, has organized a Global Warming Preach-In for Feb. 10-12.

The Preach-In is intended to help pastors, priests, rabbis, imams and other faith leaders educate their congregations on how to become better stewards of the earth, thereby answering God’s call to protect life on Earth and provide for continued human existence.
