Believing in Global Warming Goes Against the Bible Christians in the United States tend to be Skeptics due to their affiliation with political conservatism. Some of them state that the Bible gave them the right to use the land and therefore they can burn fossil fuels.

For instance, in the first chapter of the Judeo-Christian Bible, God addresses himself to Adam and Eve and says:

28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:28, New International Version

The problem with their reasoning is that they are using the land recklessly; destroying it. That is something that the Bible has not told them to do. They are thus taking a gift from God and ruining it. If anything, their excuse is sacrilegious; an insult to the God they claim to worship.
