For My Christian Friends Who Say to Relax About Climate Change

In the King James Bible, Revelation 11:18 says "and [God] shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." Is that us?  Our family? Our community? How much carbon are we burning taking out coral reefs, forests, and many species? In a post below, I noted Robinson Meyer in 2016 reported at, "The Average American Melts 645 Square Feet of Arctic Ice Every Year."

Fiona Harvey wrote in The Guardian June 28, 2017, "[Hans Joachim] Schellnhuber, director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, added: [Earth] may be fatally wounded by negligence [to reduce carbon emissions] [before] 2020.'"

Genesis 2:15 says "And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” Being a good steward means reducing carbon emissions.
