My folks are very anti-anything that smacks of energy conservation: outraged by animal protection legislation & water conservation measures, even when the lake behind their house dried up..I don't get it. They quote Genesis frequently. Yeah,- I get the argument that mankind was given "Dominion" over the earth and the creatures on it. But what about all the Biblical lessons on Stewardship? We have an obligation to protect our resources through legitimate conservation (not this hyped-up global climate change fiction, mind), pollution reduction, and sustainable policies. Do we really need all these plastic bags and packaging? Do we really need all of these convenience products? There's got to be a sane way to handle the issue.
