Southern Baptists question global warming

Last week at their annual convention, the Southern Baptist Convention passed a resolution that questions the human impact on global warming, and calls for no government limits on greenhouse gas emissions. The resolution urges Southern Baptists to "proceed cautiously in the human-induced global warming debate in light of conflicting scientific research" and calls for more "objective" scientific research. I guess they missed the three reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that provide all the objective science needed to determine that 1) humans cause global warming; and 2) if we don't do something about it, we're in a heap of trouble.

Word has it that the Convention also considered a resolution proclaiming that the sun revolves around the Earth - not the other way around - but that was jettisoned in favor of the pre-Enlightenment statement on global warming.
