I’d like to turn your attention to this blog, and tell you why I think you should have it bookmarked or blogrolled. Alternative Energy ~ Renewable Energy acts as something of a clearing house on information in the alternative energy field.
If you care anything about issues that have anything to do with energy sources -no matter what side of the fence you’re on, this is a topic that needs to be higher on the horizon than it is.
I think that anyone who listened to the State of the Union speech must have picked up on this.
Let me tell you why I think this is important to professing Christians. As such we are supposed to understand that we are stewards of God’s good earth, and that part of what we will be held accountable for is how we managed the resources of this earth for the common good. I think Christians should be ‘green’, quite frankly. And part of this stewardship is having a heads up on what overuse of fossil fuels is doing to our world… without even getting into the social and health impacts of it. We ought to care- that is the bottom line in my thinking on this.
In issues such as global warming (which I think ends up being so abstract as to be useless) if there is a contribution that is endangering the homeostasis of the earth’s climate, by the time we would know that in a measurable way the matter would be moot, anyway. I think it is much more important to look at the other reasons that alternative,’clean’ energy is important and pursue research and investment upon those reasons.
To that end I offer this link to a blog dedicated to alerting you to the news in this field that I think we will all find of increasing importance- or should.heh.

ADDENDUM: I don’t believe this should be a partisan divided issue… and I think the rhetoric on ‘global warming’ has served to cloud the thinking. If you are politically conservative I would like you to consider this idea.
