This Is What’s Wrong with Green Thinking

    The Book of Revelation belongs to an ancient literary form called an apocalypse. It is the only apocalypse to make it into the New Testament but many were written before and after the birth of our Savior – to be quaint. So in the spirit of quaintness we might think of this piece as the Apocalypse of Bill and Mike. Hark, I say unto thee that even as coal is dirtier than gas so is gas dirtier than coal and if thou burnest one or the other of them the end will come more quickly!

    I suppose this will be chicken soup for the souls of those who have committed theirs to the care of the Church of the Latter Day Environment. “McKibben, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” So I agree with ljgude’s Biblical comparison. This is just the latest iteration of the same litany preached by the Green choir, and like most litanies it neither wants nor bears close scrutiny. Just repeat after me. . . . . . .
