Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with religious moral beliefs, it has to do with an economic system that both compels and encourages profligate usage of fossil fuels and a strong belief in an individuals right to use fossil fuels in quantities limited only by that economic system - and maybe not even then.
I just got back from a few days in West Virginia - a place where all people deliberately choose to live in homes counties-away from their workplaces in the sprawl around Charleston, Beckley, the Morgantown "Tech Corridor" and the coal mines and support industries scattered over much of the state and deliberately choose to live many miles away from places to purchase necessities - they have become a totally scattered and atomized non-society - Ayn Rand's dream - with no connections to their community. The centers of the towns and smaller cities have been abandoned for the big boxes scattered along the extensive alphabet soup of federally built Appalachian corridor highways. They also deliberately choose to do all that driving in the bizarrely bloated gas guzzling things that pickup trucks have become.
Any yes they are all good Christians.
They now know of no other way of life, and any efforts to return to the former community-oriented and environmentally responsible way of life in the town centers a short walk from the stores, shops and mine portals would be resisted with violent force.
