Dobson seems to have followed Falwell in dissing Global Warming.

Dr. Dobson, Evangelical Leaders
Challenge Global-Warming Rhetoric

Letter urges National Association of Evangelicals to restrain its D.C

In a letter to the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), James C.
Dobson, Ph.D., chairman of Focus on the Family Action, joined other
pro-family leaders in urging the NAE to refrain from taking a position on
the controversial and divisive topic of global warming and other issues.

NAE official Richard Cizik, who works in the group’s Washington, D.C.,
office, has told the media it’s indisputable that human activity has
contributed to global warming and has encouraged evangelicals to make it
a top issue. On other occasions, he's said evangelicals “must confront
population control.”

“We ask,” Dobson and the others wrote, “how is population control going
to be achieved, if not by promoting abortion, the distribution of condoms
to the young and even by infanticide in China and elsewhere? Is this
where Richard Cizik would lead us?”

To demonstrate that not all evangelicals are on board with global-warming
alarmism, the letter references a statement by the Interfaith Stewardship
Alliance that challenges common assumptions about global warming.
