I was reading some old Christopher Hitchens stuff and came upon this line about Sarah Palin:

"Palin also says that she doesn't think humans are responsible for global warming; again, one would like to ask her whether, like some of her co-religionists, she is a "premillenial dispensationalist"—in other words, someone who believes that there is no point in protecting and preserving the natural world, since the end of days will soon be upon us."

I had no idea there was a name for the 'end times' people. But aside from that, even if you are a premillenial dispensationalist, shouldn't you respect the Earth until it's finally in the can? This is our home--we live here---supposedly God made it. Not treating your home in a kindly and respectful manner, even though its close to the end and you're rapturing out, is like spitting on your grandmother because she has Alzheimer's disease.

Shame on you.
