Global Warming and the SBC

Our last "Theology at the Forge" discussed the Christian and his environment.  We looked, from a redemptive-historical perspective, at how Christians, while not worshipping the earth, should be stewards of it, more than all others.  I noted that at the recent SBC Annual Meeting, a resolution was made against global warming.  You can read about it here.  Now I certainly don't deny that global warming is but a theory, and it very well could be false.  But why such a resolution?  Did someone sit down and think, "Gee, I wonder how we can comment on a peripheral issue to the world that will reinforce the idea that we are unsophisticated rednecks?"  It was a success, let me say.  Good grief.
