Recently, Bill Moyers was awarded the Global Environment Citizen Award from Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School. His acceptance speech (reprinted at alternet) is a chilling assessment of the state of the environment in the US.

As Moyers and others are reporting, the current government and the Christian Right are essentially apathetic to the plight of the environment or even at war against it because there are those among them who believe they are fulfilling biblical prophecy:

millions of Christian fundamentalists may believe that environmental destruction is not only to be disregarded but actually welcomed – even hastened – as a sign of the coming apocalypse.
