British Bishops promote "Carbon Fast"

British bishops urge 'carbon fast' for Lent

Several prominent Anglican British bishops are urging Christians to keep their carbon consumption in check this Lent.

...this year's initiative aims to convince those observing Lent to try a day without an iPod or mobile phone in a bid to reduce the use of electricity — and thus trim the amount of carbon dioxide spewed into the atmosphere.

Bishop of London Rev. Richard Chartres said that the poorest people in developing countries were the hardest hit by man-made climate change.

He said Tuesday that the "Carbon Fast" was "an opportunity to demonstrate the love of God in a practical way."

Seriously. Someone in the UK get the memo to these people.

There is nothing wrong with giving up something / fasting as part of ones religious beliefs. But, to encourage people to go on a "Carbon Fast" to protect the poor from the myth of "man-made climate change" as "an opportunity to demonstrate the love of God" tells me that these people no longer worship God, The Creator but rather, they worship earth, the creation. No one should listen to these fools on any topic ever again.
