Reflection: Accepting the reality of death: Christ's message of hope and consolation - Andrew Kania

It is worth looking at what the radical green religion has in store for us. Maurice Strong, climate adviser to the UN Secretary General and President Obama, was a key player in the IPCC. He says:

'It is our only hope for the planet that the industrial civilisations collapse. Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?'

Strong was a prime mover of Earth Charter which pushes for abortion, euthanasia and population control and is endorsed by most environ-mental groups. It seeks to use religions to spread its message and naive Christians have been taken in. For example, the Edmund Rice Centre has an Eco-Justice link which states:

'The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental principles for a just, sustainable and peaceful global society in the 21st century. The Edmund Rice Centre has joined thousands of organisations throught the world in adopting and implementing the Earth Charter and your school can do the same.'

Professor Schneider, an environmentalist from Stanford University states, 'We have to offer up scary scenarios of climate change. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.'

As the Canadian born author, Mark Steyn, says of the green religion, 'We are the pollution, and sterilisation is the solution The best way to bequeath a more sustainable environment to our children is not to have any.'
