On Tuesday, we asked ex-JW activist Lloyd Evans about the Jehovah's Witness view on climate change, since it's an organization so centered around the idea of global catastrophe. Lloyd explained that because the planet was in Jehovah's hands, Witnesses tended not to be concerned about environmental issues. We then received a rebuttal from Rob, a Witness who disagreed, and we're very happy to publish his message to us, with his permission…

Jehovah's Witnesses, in fact, do have an active interest in environment, and encourage members to take action to reduce the negative affects we have on the environment. Consider one of our journals, the Awake! magazine, from 2007:
