You do bring up some interesting points and it's difficult to answer, you could easily write a thesis on this subject. I'm not even sure if Republicans are the cause of this attitude or are just the result of this attitude, so it would be very interesting to see what would happen if leaders suddenly changed their tune.

I can only speak from anecdotal stories, but my family, and especially my mother, believe it's okay to pollute the planet since God is "going to fix everything soon" anyway. So she's fine with essentially sitting on her hands while people wreck the planet because it'll be "fixed". I hate that mindset. It's not the mindset of all Christians but I know she isnt the only one who thinks that way.  

Wow, that's like reverse slacktivism. My family is mostly Christian (I am not), and they do believe its our responsibility to protect the planet, so its definitely not a uniform mindset.
