Creationism vs. Climate Change

Somehow the linked article got me thinking that creationists probably inherrantly disbelieve the concept of climate change. The world, nay, the very universe, was created perfect, just the way that God wanted it to be. He created it for humans, and therefore entirely anticipated all the CO2 and CFCs that we'd ever produce. Therefore, there is nothing that we can do to change the Earth, unless that is specifically what God wanted.

It's a very fatalistic viewpoint, I think. Maybe the worst would be if they're half wrong - we aren't incapable of destroying the world, we're just incapable of adapting to save it.
