Tweeting about the weather seems inocuous enough. The exception is when you use the weather on a particular day to justify your denial of climate change, even though national academies of science in many civilized nations say global warming is real.
However, Vicky Hartlzer wasn't really mocking anyone when she asked her Twitter followers to pray for rain today. Similarly, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin asked the people of her state to pray for rain during a drought in her state. No doubt this heat wave has been brutal in Missouri -- just look at the record highs set in July.
Maybe it is time to stop treating climate change like it is a joke as well. In fact, people of faith have called for action to be taken to reverse the trends of global warming. People of science and people of faith can be one in the same.
