I do run into this reasoning from religious right circles: “God promised he wouldn’t wipe us out in quite that way, so global warming can’t be happening (or harmful).” It’s infuriating to see its potential to influence public policy. I’m sorry, but these particular superstitions are dangerous. Unless by some wild stroke of luck they’re correct, they threaten to take the saner part of the population down with them.
