Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance, discussed with The New American the widespread corruption of science that has accompanied the massive government funding of global warming alarmism in the past two decades. Dr. Beisner was honored at the Heartland Institute’s 9th International Climate Conference (ICCC9) with the Outstanding Spokesperson on Faith, Science, and Stewardship Award, presented by the Heritage Foundation.
“The Cornwall Alliance is a coalition of clergy, theologians, religious leaders, scientists, academics, and policy experts committed to bringing a balanced Biblical view of stewardship to the critical issues of environment and development,” the organization’s website explains.
Dr. Beisner is an interdisciplinary scholar specializing in the application of Biblical world view, theology, and ethics to economics, environmental stewardship, political philosophy, public policy, and apologetics. He has testified as an expert witness on the theology, ethics, science, and economics of climate change policy before the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and the Energy and Environment Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce; briefed the White House Council on Environmental Policy; delivered a paper at a conference at the Vatican sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace; and spoken at the 2008, 2009, and 2010 International Conferences on Climate Change, and at colleges, churches, and other venues.
Dr. Beisner is the author of numerous articles, and his books include The Auburn Avenue Theology, Pros & Cons: Debating the Federal Vision; Where Garden Meets Wilderness: Evangelical Entry Into the Environmental Debate; Prospects for Growth: A Biblical View of Population, Resources, and the Future; and Prosperity and Poverty: The Compassionate Use of Resources in a World of Scarcity.
