Conservative policy experts and religious leaders have collaborated to condemn the radical environmentalism movement in a 12-part video series.
The series, called Resisting the Green Dragon, features criticisms of the green movement which religious leaders contend is a false religion that puts nature above people.
"Environmentalists have a long history of believing and promoting exaggerations and myths," says Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission in the video.
One such myth speakers cite in the video is the notion that humans are causing global warming. According to The Cornwall Alliance founder Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, environmentalists are using this belief to advocate increased population control as a means of saving the earth.
Most environmentalists want to greatly reduce the human population, which is why the green movement and population control and reduction movements have gone hand in hand, says Beisner in the promotional video.
The Cornwall Alliance produced the series. The alliance is a scientific and religious coalition advocating a stewardship view of environmentalism based on Gods Genesis command to tend to the garden.
As alliance Senior Fellow Dr. James Tonkowich states in the promo, religious leaders are not demonizing efforts to care for the earth.
Taking care of the earth sounds like a good idea because it is a good idea. What most Christians dont understand is that environmentalism is a whole worldview that offers its own doctrines of God, of creation, of humanity, of sin and of redemption, he contends.
The series, therefore, is an effort to expose the true motivations of the environmental movement.
I think the fear mongering is simply a way of obtaining power. Whoever controls the environmental regulations controls the economy, controls the population, Tonkowich expresses.
The alliance series was made in collaboration with American Family Association, the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family.
The videos feature FRC President Tony Perkins, FOTF Vice President of Public Policy Tom Minnery, Concerned Women for America President Wendy Wright and Summit Ministries founder Dr. David Noebel, to name a few.

I have been saying this for years, and that all environmental messages need to be removed from school textbooks on that grounds.
Worshipping the creation rather than the Creator is an old “religion.”
Seems lately, that when there is a movement or group of people that believe something controversial, the best way to denigrate or negate it, is to call it a false religion.
When and how did this practice come about?
Global Warming as Religion:
Ecotard kooks from the following denomination of the Church of the Warming Globe want you to become "very happy" by sending them a donation (I'm not making this reality-reflecting-parody up):
The Regeneration Project
and the Interfaith Power and Light campaign
"A religious response to global warming"
Donate and feel "very happy" about your life.

I’d like to see Christian leaders say Humanism is also a false religion.
I worship God not mankind.
Add ISLAM to that also!!!
Pagan EARTH worship has been around for centuries.
Many non-Christian leaders agree.
ping 4 later
In a country as Christian as America, I would think it has been happening for centuries.
For instance Voodoo and Mormonism, Communism, etc.
I guess it’s just getting more press nowadays.
Interesting documentary. Also there is a good new book as well with a similiar title....
Could make a good set for viewing and reading this New Year.
They do. Dr. Voddie Baucham, Ken Ham and more.
No, but the best way to call something out, is to tell the truth, and the rabid-greenies are pushing a false religion.
It is one thing to take care of God’s earth, with respect & responsibility, it is ANOTHER to make this the idol you worship (and expect eveyone around you to do so as well)..
I honestly believe if people would just investigate the meaning of religion, and use their common sense to understand what Christianity is all about it would soon appear that Christianity is about the only organization that was not based on religion.
Every thing else is based on the power of man and not God, man can do anything, even rise up to the heavens as the king of Babylon ( Lucifer )was going to do but failed.
Every organization from environmentalism to the boy scouts of America, and every thing in between is a form of religion, it is not necessarily true or false it is just a form of religion.
Christian churches need to distance themselves from the word religion, if they are a true church of God why would they call them selves a religion? if they call them selves a religion maybe they are just as false as the environmental organization.
