'Tend and keep' world we are given

I'm tired of people trying to prove or disprove global warming by quoting a certain scientist's theory. The fact is, we don't really know if global warming is happening. Even if it is, we don't know that it is caused by human activity.

That being said, it is never a bad idea to take better care of the environment. Genesis 2:15 says, "Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it." God wants us to make an effort to "tend and keep" His creation. Christians need to stop dismissing the environment just because the Republican Party apparently tells us to. God did not intend us to shackle ourselves to a political party, but to free ourselves through His word.

At the same time, environmentalists need to stop trying to scare people into conservation. It is not fear, but a respect for God's creation, that is needed.
