Some Souther Baptists say we should take climate change seriously

There's an old joke that two rabbis will have three opinions. I wonder if it may also be said of Baptists. The Dobson connected rejoinder is not too suprising. Basically the news is that, potentially, even religious conservatives may come around to environmental stances. That this should even be news seems curious since pretty theologically conservative Protestants spoke out on environmental issues decades ago (e.g. Francis Schaeffer) but I suppose it speaks to the times that this is the kind of news item it is.
