Romans, Chapter 1/Worshipping the Creation, Rather Than the Creator

You are free to believe or not to believe the God part of what follows, but truly, the words in this passage from Romans, chapter 1, aptly illustrates what is fundamentally wrong with the environmentalists and their "Gaea" religion. I included the entire passage in order to provide context. Below is the scripture:
 "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen."

IN OTHER WORDS, the Greens and their friends have the horse before the cart. The world was  made by an intelligent being. This intelligent being, this designer of and creator of the world, is the one all of us should revere, respect, and  worship. As science matures and scientists find more about the Universe, the idea that we are the created becomes more and more plausible from an objective point of view.
