Paul Proctor : Making a religion out of the environment
While we should be good stewards of the earth, we worship God Almighty who gave man dominion over nature. We do not worship nature.

Europe blends religion with ecology -- another false Gospel
Using churches, mosques and temples as government platform ( EU Commission; Council; Parliament.)
Double agenda: Promoting unity versus Jesus as the ONLY way to God
"Brussels officials have turned to religious VIPs to help spread the gospel of an environmentally friendly society and increase awareness of climate change in their parishes, as well as promoting tolerance between different confessions in Europe. ( Ed: not acknowledging Jesus as the ONLY way to God )
Twenty high-level representatives 19 men and one woman - from European Christian, Jewish and Muslim congregations met in Brussels on Monday (5 may) to discuss the sensitive issues of climate change and reconciliation between peoples. ( Ed: denying Jesus as the ONLY way to God )
"Thanks to their moral authority [ Ed: power over the sheeple; Nicolaitans ] , their outreach and their structure, they are well placed to make a valuable contribution, mobilising our societies for a sustainable future," the president said

ANOTHER GOSPEL :
Steven C. Rockefeller's Ark of Socialism: Earth Charter
Rockefeller-sponsored Socialism...J Farah
"Rockefeller is chairman of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and a trustee of the United Nations University for Peace in Costa Rica. From 1997 through 2000, he chaired the international Earth Charter drafting committee, and is Earth Charter commissioner for North America.
The Earth Charter, in case you haven't guessed, is the globalists' version of the Constitution. This is the founding document of a new world order.
But it's not just your wealth they are after. It's your freedom. That's why I take this Earth Charter business seriously. These are dangerous and diabolical folks making long-range plans to seize even more power and destroy any vestige of freedom left in the world. The Earth Charter is a chilling document. It stands on its head all the notions of freedom and independence upon which America was founded. The Rockefeller family, instead, seeks to create an "interdependent" world ruled by the elites. Whenever you see this word "interdependent," remember what it means: "dependent

THE MYTH OF OVERPOPULATION
THE LIBERAL LIE: OVERPOPULATION
turned over to a strong delusion
Quotes on Population Control
Jacques-Yves Cousteau, environmentalist and documentary maker: "Its terrible to have to say this. World population must be stabilized, and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. This is so horrible to contemplate that we shouldnt even say it. But the general situation in which we are involved is lamentable."
John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal: "I suspect that eradicating smallpox was wrong. It played an important part in balancing ecosystems."
Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University population biologist: "Were at 6 billion people on the Earth, and thats roughly three times what the planet should have. About 2 billion is optimal."
David Foreman, founder of Earth First!: "Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental."
David M. Graber, research biologist for the National Park Service: "It is cosmically unlikely that the developed world will choose to end its orgy of fossil-energy consumption, and the Third World its suicidal consumption of landscape. Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along
Hope-- Dr. Steven C. Rockefeller's commission
Is this a mis-placed Hope ? Yes. Jesus alone is the only HOPE of this world
The Ark of the New Age Covenant-
"The Ark of Hope is a blatant and blasphemous affront to Jews and Christians alike. It places a sacred status on the Earth Charter, and attempts to replace the divine law of Yahweh with man-made rules that will pave the way for the Antichrist. "
New World Religion by William F. Jasper-- "The New American "
Blasphemous 'Ark of Hope'...Earth Charter
Steven Rockefeller ( financier ) , Maurice Strong ( spiritual advocate ) , Mikhail Gorbachev ( Socialist International )
The summits opening day featured a four-hour symposium entitled, "Educating for Sustainable Living with the Earth Charter." Steven Rockefeller, a religion professor and scion [ Ed: offspring ] of the fabulously wealthy banking family that donated the land for the UN headquarters in New York, was preeminent among the presenters. Professor Rockefeller is also chairman of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Earth Charter International Drafting Committee. According to Rockefeller, the way to go about "building peace on earth" is through the "inclusive, integrated and spiritual approach" of the Earth Charter.
Joining him and the other
worshipers was Jane Goodall, the celebrity chimpanzee expert who
has become a fixture at forums sponsored by Mikhail
Gorbachev and the UN. The Charter was carried on foot,
by car, and by boat, arriving in New York City on November 8th, ( 2001 ) to be greeted by Pete Seeger,
the leftist folksinger ( of "Peter, Paul and Mary" fame ). On January 24th,( 2002) the Ark and Charter were carried in a
procession from the Interfaith Center of New York to the United Nations Church
Center Chapel, a distance
of about 15 blocks.
Canadian billionaire socialist Maurice Strong, who presided over the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, is somewhat less tentative.
"The real goal of the Earth Charter," said Strong, "is that it will in fact become like the Ten Commandments." (Emphasis added.) Mr. Strong had high hopes that the Charter, conceived in 1987, would be adopted by the world at Rio. Alas, there were too many other messianic projects on Gaias burners at that confab. Gaia, the Greek goddess of Earth, has become the supreme deity in the green theology of the militant environmentalists.
In his opening address to the Rio
summit, Strong directed the worlds
attention to the "Declaration of the Sacred Earth,"
which was part of the pre-Summit ceremonies. "The changes in
behavior and direction called for here," said Strong,
"must be rooted in our deepest spiritual, moral, and
ethical values." According to the declaration,
"The [ecological] crisis transcends all national, religious,
cultural, social, political and economic boundaries."
"The responsibility of each human being today is to choose
between the force of darkness and the force of light,"
Strong exhorted. "We must therefore transform our attitudes
and values, and adopt a renewed respect for the superior laws of
Answering Steve Rockefeller
" Who are the "eminent persons" as Gorbachev calls them who have drawn up the Charters new principles to guide "the conduct of all individuals, organizations, businesses, governments, and transnational institutions," or who have lent their names and fortunes to this effort? Leonardo Boff, the radical Marxist author and proponent of "liberation theology," for one. Some of the more familiar names at Green Cross International include Yoko Ono (widow of John Lennon), Robert Redford, and Ted Turner. Other GCI luminaries are former presidents, prime ministers, ambassadors, etc., with a heavy sprinkling of former UN officials, including: former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Perez; former Costa Rican President Oscar Arias; former UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar; and Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of the famed oceanographer. Virtually all of these individuals fall along the far left of the ideological spectrum, with a large proportion being members of the Socialist International.
The Earth Council, run by billionaire Maurice Strong, is composed of like-minded individuals. Strong himself is a special adviser to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, and serves on the board of Ted Turners UN Foundation and the boards of several other high-powered institutions. Earth Council luminaries include Jimmy Carter, Robert S. McNamara, and Bishop Desmond Tutu.
Dr. Rockefeller knows better than this. He has been at the forefront of the movement to create a New Age, global, syncretic faith. Along with other members of the Rockefeller family, he has been one of the major patrons of the Episcopalian Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, one of the most prestigious fonts of New Age proselytizing. The cathedral has been home for many years for the Lindisfarne Institute and the Institutes founder, New Age guru : William Irwin Thompson.
According to [ William ] Thompson:
"We have now a new spirituality, what has been called the New Age movement. The planetization of the esoteric has been going on for some time.... This is now beginning to influence concepts of politics and community in ecology.... This is the Gaia [ Mother Earth ] politique planetary culture." Whats more, says Thompson, the time of "the independent sovereign state, with the sovereign individual in his private property [is] over, just as the Christian fundamentalist days are about to be over."
Rockefellers close friend and fellow Earth Charter promoter Maurice Strong is a longtime officer of Thompsons Lindisfarne Center and shares his New Age, occult, anti-Christian beliefs.
Ark of Hope...coming to a church near you-- Dr. James C. Warner
Mr. Jasper wrote about the United Nations Earth-centered "religion," devoting major space to something called the "Ark of Hope." He described this ark as a blasphemous copy of the biblical Ark of the Covenant, in which Moses placed the Ten Commandments, Aarons rod, and a sample of the manna that God sent from heaven. Instead of the Ten Commandments, the Ark of Hope contains a papyrus version of the Earth Charter and other writings, including those from children supposedly expressing their hopes and aspirations for the world..............
Pastor Jim Roberts said that it is time for Christians to "release Jesus." [Ed: to let go of our loyalty to Jesus :(
"We should not be so dogmatic in our beliefs. We need to approach the worlds various cultures and say, "Tell us your story of creation. We want to hear." :(
For the closing hymn, participants sang John Lennons subversive song Imagine:
"Imagine theres no heaven no hell no countries ... no religion
Steven Rockefeller Chairman of Earth Charter "Sustainable Development"
" The charter contains 16 general principles and 60 supporting principles, or ways to implement the principal guidelines. It is designed to serve as
a universal code of conduct to guide people and nations toward sustainable development. And it is a call to action in support of the environment, a declaration of interdependence and responsibility.
The major principles of the pact are drawn from international law, science, philosophy, religion, recent United Nations summit meetings and an international dialogue on global ethics generated at the conference and elsewhere.
Rockefeller, professor emeritus of religion at Middlebury College in Vermont, said educating young people is the key to a sustainable future. He also believes religion plays a big part in changing people's values, and thus their actions in behalf of the environment, he said.
ED: meaning: his ( S Rockefeller's ) New Age Religion will replace the Judeo-Christian Faith of the Bible

Chairman of the EARTH COUNCIL ; Secretary General of Earth Summit '92 ( Rio de Janiero)
"In 1966, by now a Liberal favorite, Strong became head of the Canadian International Development Agency and thus was launched internationally. Impressed by his work at CIDA, UN Secretary General U Thant asked him to organize what became the first Earth Summit -- the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment in 1972. The next year, Strong became first director of the new UN Environment Program, created as a result of Stockholm.
Earth Charter and Human Potential
Earth Charter in Action
URBINO, Italy, July 1 /CNW/ -- June 29 saw the opening of an exhibition entitled "Seeds of Change --
The Earth Charter and Human Potential," highlighting the Earth Charter as a "map" which points the way toward sustainable living, in the medieval city of Urbino, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which was one of the main centers of the Italian Renaissance. Participants in two concurrent international conferences related to sustainable development taking place in the city joined the event. Held in Urbino to coincide with the "Earth Charter in Action" conference from June 26 to 30, the exhibition was sponsored by Soka Gakkai International (SGI), The City of Urbino and the Italian SGI Institute. It has already been displayed in the UK and is slated to open in venues in the USA and France, with further possible showings planned for Australia, Singapore, Ghana, Argentina and Brazil. The "Seeds of Change" exhibition,
SGI, a lay Buddhist association with 12 million members, has been a supporter of the Earth Charter movement to establish a common ethical framework for sustainable development since 1997. Its activities to promote peace, culture, education and environmental awareness are part of the longstanding tradition of Buddhist humanism.
Barragan says Earth-Ethic to supplant Christianity
Archbishop J. Lozano Barragan-- Head of Vatican Council for Health Care Workers
Barragan defines the "new paradigm" as :
Eclecticism, which "accepts any affirmation on conduct regardless of its system, context and judgment";
Historicism, which holds that "truth changes according to its adaptation to a specific period of history."
Scientific spirit, which says "the only acceptable truth is the one which can be experienced scientifically";
Pragmatism: "the sole criterion of ethical decisions is their usefulness";
Nihilism: "gives up the capacity to arrive at objective truths."
Ed: Could also add " Universalism" ..all men are saved no matter what, even if they are atheists
and "Syncretism" ...all faiths are equal, so mix and match etc. etc.
"However, the New Paradigm manifests itself "as a new spirituality that supplants all religions, because the latter have been unable to preserve the ecosystem." In a word, this is
"a new secular religion, a religion without God, or if you prefer, a new God that is the earth itself with the name GAIA," he said.
"The series of values that sustain the New Paradigm are values subordinated to this divinity that becomes the supreme ecological value, which they call sustainable development. The highest ethical end, within this sustainable development, is well-being," he wrote.
"Clearly, we are faced with the total denial of Christianity and the fundamental fact of Christianity, the Incarnation of the Word, the redeeming death of Christ and His glorious resurrection. If this historical fact is accepted, the assumption of the New Paradigm fails completely," the archbishop warned.
"This does not mean that the genuine values proclaimed by the New Paradigm also fail, values that are not foreign to Christian thought, but find their raison d'Ítre in the latter," he added.
Earth Charter--Agenda for Totalitarianism.....Lee Penn
Returning to Earth Worship-- by Michael Coffman
The world view of traditional societies tends to be strikingly different from the modern world view. They tend to view themselves as members of a community that not only includes other humans, but also plants and animals as well as rocks, springs and pools. People are then members of a community of beings-living and non-living. Thus rivers may be viewed as mothers. Animals may be treated as kin.... The many restraints on the use of natural resources,... may have evolved culturally in response to the need to ensure more sustainable use of...biological diversity. Compliance...is typically assured through two devices: fear of the wrath of offended nature spirits and social sanctions against offenders.
Dr. Michael Coffman is president of Environmental Perspectives, Inc. and CEO of Sovereignty International Corporation in Bangor, Maine.
The "Plan" and the "Partnership" by Michael Coffman
With the help of Vice President Gore's endorsement, the Partnership has sent environmental literature to over 67,000 congregations and 100 million congregants calling for the Church to make the protection of the earth a central message of the Church. Although written in "bibleze," it nonetheless represents a deceptive attempt to create guilt thereby shifting the focus of the Church from the gospel of Christ to one of protecting Mother Earth.

He also explained that the commission is going to clarify some technical issues that make member states interpret the ETS differently and which can therefore distort the competition of CO2 polluting allowances on climate exchange
He explained that the US state of California had recently been in contact with the EU executive to help set up a comparable trading scheme which could be linked to the European climate exchange something the commission is pursuing at the moment, he added

Dossier: Maurice Strong

Woe Canada !
Maurice Strong is a native Canadian. Note how Canada is foremost in legalizing same-sex marriage, giving preferred legal status to homosexuals (which is actually illegal); Canadians are notorious for abusing Christians judiciously and by degrading those of Judeo-Christian principles
( removing Larry Spencer MP). Canada has adopted demonic Sharia Law and as such puts Christian's heads on the chopping block.( watch).
First non-U.S. Citizen to receive highest science award
WASHINGTON -- The National Academy of Sciences has selected Maurice F. Strong to receive its most prestigious award, the Public Welfare Medal. Established in 1914, the medal is presented annually to honor extraordinary use of science for the public good. The Academy chose Strong, a Canadian and the first non-U.S. citizen to receive the award, in recognition of his leadership of global conferences that became the basis for international environmental negotiations and for his tireless efforts to link science, technology, and society for common benefit. (Ed. note: common cause)
"Mr. Strong has always supported multilateral approaches to sustainable and equitable development and international peace,"
"A leader of extraordinary ability, Mr. Strong is uniquely able to weave together the capabilities of academia, business and industry, governments, and nongovernmental organizations -- a skill crucial to marshalling science and technology in the interest of social progress," said National Academy of Sciences President Bruce Alberts. "He is an idealist who can translate vision into action and is truly a citizen of the world."
Strong no fan of democracy, national sovereignty or any traditional religions
OTTAWA, July 7, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) - As if population control guru and one-worlder Maurice Strong did not have enough to do as a top advisor to the United Nations and the World Bank, and running confabs for the world's wealthiest and most powerful,
That is Maurice Strong's take on what is wrong with the world, today, and what is the greatest threat to the environment. Everything that is wrong can, in Strong's mind, be traced to three sources -- industrialization, wealth and free markets. I'd add a fourth -- Christianity -- except Strong never quite comes out and blames it for the world's ills. He merely hints at it with statements such as "We are all gods now, gods in charge of our own destiny," which he made in his autobiographical 2000 book Where on Earth are We Going?
Actually, Strong's three sources of evil are really just one source -- Western civilization. Although he has reaped enormous personal profits from the Western ways of business and life, Strong has been a lifelong biter of the hands that feed him so well. In 1990, he even mused about a possible revolution against "industrialized civilizations."
The Legacy of Maurice Strong -- Joan Veon
"Agenda 21" is now the earth's new gospel.
International Man of Mystery
Among the hats he currently wears are: Senior Advisor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan;
Senior Advisor to World Bank President James Wolfensohn; Chairman of the Earth Council; Chairman of the World Resources Institute; Co-Chairman of the Council of the World Economic Forum; member of Toyota's International Advisory Board. As advisor to Kofi Annan, he is overseeing the new UN reforms.
He's dangerous because he's a much smarter and shrewder man [than many in the UN system]," comments Charles Lichenstein, deputy ambassador to the UN under President Reagan. "I think he is a very dangerous ideologue, way over to the Left."
After a couple of years, Strong left Petro-Canada for various business deals, including one with Adnan Khashoggi through which he ended up owning the 200,000-acre Baca ranch in Colorado, now a "New Age" center run by his wife, Hanne. (Among the seekers at Baca are Zen and Tibetan Buddhist monks, a breakaway order of Carmelite nuns, and followers of a Hindu guru called Babaji.)
Some of Strong's contacts:
--World Bank President James Wolfensohn, formerly on the Rockefeller Foundation Board and currently on the
Population Council Board; he was Al Gore's favored candidate for the World Bank position.
-- James Gustave Speth, head of the Carter
Administration's Council on Environmental Quality, crafter of the
doomladen Global 2000 report, member of the Clinton - Gore
transition team; he now heads the UN Development Program.
The concept of global governance has been fermenting for some time. In 1991, the Club of Rome (of which Strong is, of course, a member) issued a report called The First Global Revolution, which asserted that current problems "are essentially global and cannot be solved through individual country initiatives [which] gives a greatly enhanced importance to the United Nations and other international systems." Also in 1991 Strong claimed that the Earth Summit, of which he was Secretary General, would play an important role in "reforming and strengthening the United Nations as the centerpiece of the emerging system of democratic global governance." In 1995, in Our Global Neighborhood, the CGG agreed: "It is our firm conclusion that the United Nations must continue to play a central role in global governance."
This example of the European Union, however, worries Ambassador Lichenstein. The EU's bureaucracy in Brussels, he complains, "is responsible to no one. Governments get together -- foreign ministers, finance ministers -- they presumably hand down the guidelines, but don't kid yourself, the bureaucrats are running things."

The Plan to get the 3 major religions to hate each other ---- by Constance Cumby
"Let him be excluded that preaches any other Gospel. Do we seek to please men , or to please God ?"
If I go with the flow and please men, I should not be the servant of Messiah-Yeshua.
paraphrased from Galatians 1 .....
"For if he preaches another Jesus "
( another "savior"-- saving the planet .. another way, 'ethic')
"whom we have not preached;"
"or if ye receive another spirit ( spirit of man ... collective cause) "which ye have not received from God"
( the Holy Spirit )
"or another Gospel" ( called "ethic") "which ye have not accepted"
(from the original apostles; written in Scripture ) ......
"then such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into "apostles of Christ"
( the NWO so-called ' christs ' ).
"And no marvel; for Satan" ( a fallen angel )" himself is transformed into an angel of light"
( a messenger of 'enlightenment '.)
"Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers
" also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness"
whose end shall be according to their works. " 2 Corinthians 11: 4 + 13-15.
Worshipping our Creator ... not the creature
"And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting Gospel ( New Testament) to preach unto them that dwell on the earth , and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue and people,
Saying with a loud voice,
and give Glory to HIM;
for the HOUR of His judgement is come;
And WORSHIP HIM that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters."

" Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature ( created things, creation ) more than the Creator, Who is Blessed forever. Amen." -- Romans 1:25
ANOTHER GOSPEL :
Earth-Ethic ( the Greens )
From the newswire:
Global warming and global extremes http://hopetotheend.com/4bibi.html
Christian Right turns to environmentalism as "good stewards"
"creation care" ; nature having the dominion over man instead of what God commanded in Gen. 1: 28
conserving energy; organic plants etc.
SEATTLE - Thanks to the Rev. Leroy Hedman, the parishioners at Georgetown Gospel Chapel take their baptismal waters cold. The preacher has unplugged the electricity-guzzling heater in the immersion baptism tank behind his pulpit. He has also installed energy-saving fluorescent light bulbs throughout the church and has placed water barrels beneath its gutter pipes - using runoff to irrigate the congregation's all-organic gardens.
Such "creation care" should be at the heart of
evangelical life, Hedman says, along with condemning abortion,
protecting family and loving Jesus. He uses the term
"creation care" because, he says, it does not annoy
conservative Christians for whom the word
"environmentalism" connotes liberals, secularists and
" Our responsibility is in the here and now. Our duty is in the here and now.
We're supposed to be working for the redemption of Earth, "as it is in heaven." -- Joseph Farah WND
What's wrong with the above statement ? Are we not the redeemed, rather than redeemers ?
Isn't there only one Redeemer ? My Bible says that I am redeemed FROM the earth... Rev. 14:3
not that I am to redeem the earth. Jesus is my Redeemer, and He alone redeems souls.
George W's GREENS ( John Bridgeland too) -- KYOTO backers
Edson, under the new president, has established himself as a formidable bureaucratic infighter and a leading proponent of a forward position on global warming.
Bridgeland has argued that giant industrial concerns are enthusiastic about plans to voluntarily reduce carbon dioxide emissions in tacit fulfillment of the Kyoto accord.
Edson and Bridgeland are not alone as middle-level staffers confronting solid opposition from on high. Environmental Protection Administrator Christie Whitman has pressed for control of CO2 emissions from her first day in office, and she is supported by Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill (called "Mr. Global Warming" by dismissive congressional conservatives) and Bridgeland's boss, domestic policy chief Josh Bolten
congressional specialists on climate change such as Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho, chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee.
seek EU for global impact
The EU is now considering sweeping new regulation of its chemical industry that has unleashed what analysts here say is the biggest lobbying effort in Brussels ever mounted by American industry. The new law, known as Reach, would place the burden of proof of safety on the producers before its sale, rather than waiting for problems to spur regulation later. It would force American chemical companies to comply with the legislation in order to continue exporting to Europe - and raises the fear of similar legislation in the United States. The chemical industry points out that few if any of the unregulated chemicals are causing obvious health crises and says the legislation is overly bureaucratic and expensive. The American Chemical Council has marshaled its members to alter or derail the legislation.
Government and the Environment:
Earth International Convention
Scientists, bankers, government officials gather to learn more about the Earth
WASHINGTON (AP) The Bush administration kicked off an international conference Thursday aimed at learning more about the Earth and using the information to cope with weather and health problems.
In a statement, President Bush said an integrated earth observation system will benefit people around the world, "particularly those in the Southern Hemisphere."
"Our cooperation will enable us to develop the capability to predict droughts, prepare for weather emergencies, plan and protect crops, manage coastal areas and fisheries, and monitor air quality," Bush said.
Last week, the Bush administration announced a 10-year, $103 million plan to speed research in climate change, measure climatic effects from burning fossil fuel and industrial production of warming gases.
Greens want "faith-based" money; Environment as religion
Bush is talking about social services, but the [environmentalist's] agenda is filled with a lot of loathing of the human species," Horner added.
He predicted that if the EPA is successful, there would be a rise in green advocacy groups suddenly "finding religion" in order to qualify for the grant money.
"I think it's obscene ... [Green groups] will simply add a Judeo-Christian face in order to provide themselves a deeper pocket," [Chris] Horner said
Interfaith forces eco-policies religiously
"For us, climate change represents the single most comprehensive challenge to all of God's creation here on Earth,'' said a letter from the Interfaith Global Climate Change Campaign signed by leaders of faith-based environmental groups in 19 states. "It is a test of biblical covenant, a challenge of obedience to God's mandate of stewardship, and a standard of justice among all of God's children.''
Articles of Interest
"Climate Justice" ....man acting as God
In a session yesterday, activists described how churches have done "energy audits," cleaned up pollution, added ecology to Sunday school and urged clergy to give "green sermons."
They also emphasized using Bible references in advocacy because many churchgoers associate environmentalism with New Age beliefs.
"There was some worry about that in the beginning," said Elizabeth Sedin, who started up a committee on the "stewardship of creation" for the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia.

EU and the Environment
"The EU wants a world leader that is environmentally sensitive"--- European Commission President Romano Prodi said it was hard to understand how the US could abandon efforts to tackle one of the biggest challenges of global sustainability.
"If one wants to be a world leader, one must know how to look after the entire Earth
and not only American industry," he told Italy's La Republica newspaper. "
Cutting Back on Electricity -- It's all about money
Corporations pollute; homeowner, car drivers PAY; ................ pollution continues
Although the EU plan for emissions trading - aimed at reaching Kyoto obligations - does not include domestic consumers, the Spanish government has vowed to work on the principle of "polluter pays".
Domestic and transport sectors are thought to be responsible for around 60% of Spains CO2 emissions the minister said, according to Cinco Dias.

Religion Partners with Ecology...Creation Care
Paul Gorman, executive director of the National Religious Partnership for the Environment in New York.
Critics of the movement question how much religious leaders should be involved with the contentious and highly political issues, and they worry that religion could be subsumed to an earthly agenda.
Rev. Robert Sirico, president of the Acton Institute, a Michigan-based policy institute that studies the interrelation of economics and moral theology
Followers of the movement view faith-based environmentalism as a natural extension of religion, one that carries a moral obligation to act. Protecting God's creation is central to their agenda, they say.
(Who made them judge and divider over ethics?)
PRIORITIES....environment over people (population control)
Others see problems squaring specific conflicts. For example, many environmental activists favor population control, which is antithetical to Catholic beliefs.
''I'm a bit disturbed that people put so much emphasis on population,'' said Robert Royal, president of the Faith and Reason Institute in Washington, D.C., and the author of a book on religion and the environment. ''That's a misfocused argument ... because as religious people we value human beings.''
"Social justice" will be implemented environmentally with zealous control over production and consumption (Input-output sustainability)
These standards of sustainability (keeping the planet maintained for future generations) will be arbitrary. These enforcements will be immoral, reversing God's priorities for man.
The Book of Genesis states that man is to have dominion over all fauna and flora, over
all of nature and over all of the animal kingdom. We are to have the dominion over the earth.[Genesis 1:26] Not visa-versa as the environmentalists would have us to believe.
The environmentalists will enforce their immoral rules commercially.
No buying or selling of products which do not conform to "sustainability". These artificial and contrived rules
will need the power that only religious motivation can give. Hence the need for a global
religious endorsement for the cause of "social justice"
These standards are based upon control and greed, not upon "social justice" as they propagandize.
The UN is currently drafting a manifesto called "Earth Charter"
www.earthcharter.org and www.earthcharter.org/draft/charter.htm
and puts environmentalism on the altar of worship.

The EARTH Simulator
The Earth Simulator, which began work in March 2002, is the world's biggest and fastest supercomputer, and has the job of solving some of the thorniest problems facing the Earth in the decades ahead.
It is ten times more powerful than anything available at the moment to scientists in the UK. The simulator consists of 640 nodes (the equivalent of individual computers) linked together by 83,000 high-speed cables: the building which houses it has a floor space the size of four tennis courts.
