  • “There seem to be different ideas about what the Bible teaches concerning the environment. What do you think?” — Tim

    There are indeed different ideas. Some folks believe that the Earth was given to humans to use as they wish with little regard for conservation or long-term sustainability. They believe that natural resources should be fully utilized, a conviction that has largely driven capitalistic production and trade. This belief, insofar as it looks to the Bible for justification, holds that creation was made for man (Gen. 1 and 2, loosely) and contends that the Earth will one day be destroyed (II Pet. 3:10-12) — there is, therefore, no impediment to expending it.

  • More than 45 residents turned out for a rally around downtown Los Alamos on Sept. 25 to call for action on climate change.
    Joined by County Councilor David Izraelevitz, attendees moved their bodies on bike, scooter, stroller and by foot to demonstrate their commitment to moving beyond fossil fuels.
    Emily Irving brought her three young daughters to the rally, where they donned signs and rode on scooters and by stroller down Trinity and up Central.
    “It’s important to tell children as early as possible there is something they can do to protect the world,” Irving said.
    Her daughters won the prize for “Best ‘Alternative’ Vehicle” for their scooters.
