Earth Day Poll Results

May 13, 2008 by

2008_05_13earthdaypollresults.jpgIt’s a hot topic right now, the relationship between Father God and Mother Earth. With everyone and their brother describing everything they do as “green,” whether or not it’s good for the earth, we wanted to know if your church was jumping on the chance to celebrate Earth Day.

The vast majority of you treated Earth Day the same way you treat Pi Day or National Weimaraner Appreciation Day–you don’t. 29% of you didn’t even realize Earth Day passed on April 22. At least now you can go ahead and pencil it in for next year! Another 64% of you knew about it, but you didn’t care to give the planet a gift.

A small 6% of folks celebrated. Your marketing is seven shades of green, and you walk the lonely road of speaking up for our voiceless blue sphere. Did you go paper-free for a day? Turn the lights out? Walk barefoot? Let us know in the comments.

And for now, tell us, what do you think of CFCC’s partnership with HOW?

    I wouldn’t say we market green, green, green but my church did launch a new green team on Earth Day.
    Ironically, I think the largest environmental impact of many churches is the gas required for the congregation to drive there on Sunday.

    In America today you can murder land for private profit. You can leave the corpse for all to see, and nobody calls the cops.

    We went green the Sunday before Earth Day. We had a handout of things our people could do to consume less natural resources. (Not the normal things you see people recommend but radical ideas.) We also turned off all lights, sound, computers and had the service with just light from the windows. Music was just guitar and voices. andles inthe bathroom.

    I turned on every light and appliance I could and will every year this initiative is shoved in our faces regardless of the actual impact it has. The power generators create just as much energy during that time so it does nothing to that. Plastic bags have less impact on the creation and distribution of them. They can also be reused over and over. Global was a hoax by the way. Over 100,000 leading scientists have signed a document stating just what I have, that it is a hoax. Suddenly the authorities that want to tax you for breathing start calling it Climate change… well yeah the climate is always changing… so they want to tax you for the earth doing what it is supposed to. How dumb have people really become. Clearly the dumbing down of America is in full swing but becoming world wide. Stupidity is its own pandemic.
