Russ Moore Tackles Blood, Gore (Al, That Is) And Global Warming

Here’s an excerpt of his article, “Blood, Gore, and Global Warming.

Those of us who lived through the 1980s have not forgotten the rush
of “relief concerts” that followed the USA for Africa “Live-Aid”
concert for famine relief in Ethiopia. On the heels of “We Are the
World,” Willie Nelson organized “Farm Aid” to provide relief for
foreclosing family farms. Other musicians put together concerts for
various causes, from opposition to South African apartheid to third
world debt relief. The 1980s are back, but the issues are bigger than
saving the children or saving the farmers. We’re rocking to save the
whole planet.

Former Vice President Al Gore’s “Live Earth” concert this weekend
demonstrates something of how culturally popular the crusade against
global warming can be. The truth really isn’t all that inconvenient for
most Americans, because the “solution” to global warming seems so
abstract and distant that few Americans can picture how exactly fixing
the problem would change their lives at all, beyond listening to
concerts and watching Al Gore documentaries. I am hopeful, however,
about this debate, precisely because it is, at its heart, deeply
theological.
