Why Do Christians Deny Climate Change

Your average Christian, is essentially a believer in wishful thinking. Think of Jiminy Cricket in Pinocchio singing:

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.

Wishful thinking is the essence of pop Christianity. Though Christians fantasize about Jesus destroying all the heathens, they also believe God would never let humanity seriously hurt itself. They forget Noah and the many other biblical acts of genocide not to mention catastrophes of real history.

The other reason Christians are prone to climate change denial is a bit of an accident. The fundamentalist Christians have allied themselves with Republican who also allied themselves with the oil lobby. Christian are thus oddly tied with the oil lobby who don’t really deny climate change, but works to fool everyone else to.

Arms Race

Historically, all arms races ended in war or bankruptcy of one or both players. One problem with a nuclear arms race is it forces the losing player to skimp on safeguards in order to afford to keep up.
