McCain and Palin divided over causes of global warming

John McCain has repeatedly said in his campaign that humans causes global warming while his running mate has publicly questioned scientists' claims, the Washington Post reports.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin established a sub-cabinet to deal with climate change issues a year ago, but she has focused on how to adapt to global warming rather than how to combat it, Juliet Eilperin writes.

"She fought the administration's listing of polar bears as threatened with extinction because of shrinking sea ice" Eilperin writes. "Palin sued to overturn the decision on the grounds that it will 'have a significant adverse impact on Alaska because additional regulation of the species and its habitat . . . will deter activities such as commercial fisheries, oil and gas exploration and development, transportation and tourism within and off-shore of Alaska.'"

Several evangelicals have called for policies that care for the environment, but many are still divided over global warming. Christianity Today's earlier coverage of global warming includes news articles and opinion pieces.
