A new feature-length documentary on global warming is being embraced by Evangelical Christian organizations around the country. They are using the
film as a campaign tool to mobilize the conservative evangelical Christian voting base to press candidates in the coming elections to make the
reduction of green-house gases a priority.
With a new documentary titled "The Great Warming" as their chief campaign tool, a coalition of religious leaders, environmentalists and businesses
are spreading copies of the film into churches around the country. Voter guides and themed sermons are also part of the plan.
The aim of the screenings, like one held in Kansas last week, is to turn the large and powerful conservative Christian constituency into a voting
block united behind making the reduction of greenhouse gases a top priority among politicians.
Evangelical Christian leaders have embraced the cause and are now helping spur momentum before both midterm elections in November and the 2008

Conservative Christian denominations and organizations have long had an interest in promoting social and political agendas for at least the past 25
years but this is the first instance that I know of where they are becoming involved in the global warming debate. Evangelical Christian groups have
been very prominent in supporting conservative and moderate social issues, Abortion being the most visable but, until recently, they have not involved
themselves in the global warmimg issue; it would appear that they now intend to make global warming and the reduction of green-house gasses a
priority in whom and what political campaigns they will support.
