No, the real parallel is not in the pulpits of the faithful who dutifully attend church, temple, mosque and synagogue. Many of those folks attend services because they know that at least their world will end. We have a few decades on this little blue orb to do our best...having faith in an afterlife at least makes that experience somewhat more pleasant. At the very least, they are living out Pascal's Wager - there may be no way of proving God exists, but if you live your life accordingly, you have nothing to lose.

Got a species going extinct? (As millions have...) Blame it on man and the global warmings. Just got whacked with a tsunami - pity you didn't stop driving your SUV last year. The ice caps are melting - no their growing...either way, it's your fault. The snow mass on the Rockies is receding, no wait, it's at a record...either way, you done it. You get the point.
We have called for stewardship on these pages many times before. We are all for good water quality, clean air and healthy foods. But unlike the cultist climate changers, we remain humble in nature's face acknowledging that there's a whole lot we cannot do even as we strive to do what we can.
