A welcome change this week – New Scientist has reported some positive news. One article outlines the Clergy Letter Project, an open letter supporting evolutionary theories which was signed by 10,000 members of the clergy. The other (subscription only, as usual) deals with “green theologians” – Christians who have decided that taking care of God’s Earth might be a better idea than destroying it. Significantly, the US National Association of Evangelicals (who make up 40 % of the Republican Party) are starting to advocate green reform. The Apocalypse may be averted yet.
