It makes a lot of sense for Christians to be environmentalists, even
as fundamentalists.

The notion of "rapture" is not actually a fundamentalist movement,
but started as a cultish interpretation of a few phrases in the
mystical books of the New Testament.

Most fundamentalists rely more on the writings of Paul and the
apostles than of the mystical books like Revelations.

The attitude that there is only ONE planet that God has blessed with
life, human life, and spiritual human life, is far more compelling
than the fantasy of rapture.

Those Christians that rely on scripture for guidance, derive an
obligation to husband the earth (to care for it intentionally), not
to dominate it (a prior interpretation/misinterpretation).
