  • Leading Evangelicals Object to EPA Restrictions on Power Plant CO2 Emissions
    (June 26, 2012)

    Cornwall Alliance Counters Effort to Portray CO2 Emissions Regulations as “Pro-Life”

    (June 26, 2012, Washington, D.C.)—More than 100 leading evangelical scientists, economists, theologians, and pastors endorsed a formal comment sent Monday by The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) opposing its intent to put restrictions on carbon-dioxide emissions from electric power plants.

    The comment to EPA was in stark contrast to an effort by the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN) to portray evangelicals as supporting the new regulation as “pro-life.”

  • Pro-Life Leaders Call for End to Misleading Environmentalist Campaign
    (February 7, 2012)

    Prominent pro-life leaders Wednesday condemned a campaign portraying controversial environmental regulations dealing with mercury as pro-life.

    (February 8, Washington, DC)—More than 30 of the nation's most prominent pro-life leaders have come together as one voice and issued an official statement against an environmental campaign spearheaded by the Evangelical Environmental Network calling mercury regulations “pro-life.”

    In the statement “Protecting the Unborn and the Pro-Life Movement from a Misleading Environmentalist Tactic,” the pro-life leaders said,

    “Recently some environmentalists have portrayed certain of their causes as intrinsic to the pro-life movement … As leaders…   CA

    The Cornwall Alliance Warns Christians EPA Regulations Do Not Carry a Pro-Life Banner

    (December 21, 2011)

    (December 22, Washington, DC)—“Yesterday the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave Americans a lump of coal in their Christmas stockings,” said Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, National Spokesman of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. “The unwanted present? A likely 11.5 percent hike in electricity rates, costing the average household more than $160 extra next year.”
    The gift came in the form of EPA’s newly announced Utility MACT (Maximum Achievable Control Technology) rule setting new restrictions on mercury emissions from power plants. EPA estimated the new rule would cost the economy $9.6 billion per year.   CA

  • Bi-Partisan Congressional Measures to Stop EPA Power Grab
    (March 29, 2011)

    Bi-Partisan Congressional Measures to Stop EPA Power Grab on Greenhouse Gas Regulation Could Prevent Energy Prices Increases, Job Losses, and Constitutional Crisis
    (March 28, 2011, Washington, DC)—The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation is keeping an eye on Sen. Mitch McConnell’s amendment to a small-business technology bill expected to come to a vote this week. The amendment would prohibit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHG) to prevent alleged dangerous manmade global warming. The amendment is identical to bills pending in the House and Senate with bipartisan sponsorship by a combined 116 members of Congress.
    According to Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, National Spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance, “The bi-partisan support for these measures reveals the sense of Congress that EPA’s regulating carbon dioxide threatens the Constitutional separation of powers.”
    Following the failure of cap-and-trade legislation in the last Congress after the scientific case for dangerous manmade global warming collapsed, the Administration turned to the EPA to do what Congress refused to do. It thus put unaccountable bureaucrats in charge of enforcing the most intrusive regulations ever imposed on the American economy.
    “The potential damage from EPA regulation of carbon dioxide emissions is enormous,” Beisner said. “Energy prices would skyrocket, driving up costs for food, shelter, transportation, and everything else consumers need. Businesses would face dramatic permitting costs, and employment would plummet. . . .”   CA

  • Sounding the Alarm about Dangerous Environmental Extremism:
    (November 10, 2010)


    While Others Push Evangelicals to Embrace Anti-Christian Environmental Views, the Cornwall Alliance Has Been Joined by Top Christian Leaders in a New Series of DVDs and Printed Resources for Churches and Ministries

    (November 10, 2010, Washington, DC) – At a critical moment in the global environmental debate, many of America’s top Christian leaders have joined with the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to produce an explosive new 12-part DVD series, Resisting the Green Dragon, which begins shipping today both in the United States and abroad.  The series sounds the alarm about dangerous environmental extremism and brings a Biblical viewpoint on environmental issues and creation stewardship to evangelical churches, ministries, and schools.
    The new video series – excerpts of which can be seen at www.ResistingTheGreenDragon.com
    comes at a time when environmental advocacy groups are frustrated that their top priority for the past two decades—a global treaty to curtail fossil fuel use to fight alleged catastrophic global warming—is losing steam.   CA
