PBS's smarmy propagandist Bill Moyers investigated the recent evangelical interest in environmental issues on a program called "Is God Green?" the other night. It was typical Moyers, carefully crafted to make his side (leftist environmentalists) look virtuous and the opposition appear evil.
Nonetheless, the online transcript of the fascinating unedited interview he did with Dr. E Calvin Beisner of Knox Theological Seminary (who also appeared, much abridged, on the broadcast program), a drafter of the Cornwall Declaration and one of the chief spokesmen for the skeptical view of environmentalist alarmism, is informative and enlightening. Tellingly, it demonstrates how impervious Moyers can be to facts and logic when they contradict his ideology.
(And if you're new to the debate, I sketched it out a bit last February, which you can find here.)
