Youth Take the Presbyterian Church to Church over Climate Change Awareness


In the beginning God created heaven and earth.

And God saw everything that he had made and that it was very good.  Genesis 1:1&31

“This is how I see the church really being like Jesus,” the release quoted Kirk. “Not just talking, but making hard choices to live like Jesus—caring for the poor and all in God’s creation without a voice; not taking more than our share; and preserving the earth for future generations.”

The reason the youths gave was to “raise awareness of climate change” in their view they believe “This is how I see the church really being like Jesus.” “Not just talking, but making hard choices to live like Jesus—caring for the poor and all in God’s creation without a voice; not taking more than our share; and preserving the earth for future generations.”

Now I think it is wonderful that our young people are taking an interest in church matters but I do find this a little unsettling. Many who know me and have read my posts on Facebook and this blog know I am not a believer in man-made climate change nor do I ascribe to the notion that CO2 is a pollutant; it is after all plant food. It has been proven that data used to promote the whole concept of Global warming was phony. Therefore the whole thing is a big hoax with designs on parting you from your money and livelihoods.

Of course my perspective comes from a biblical viewpoint one were God made the heavens and the earth and created the plant life and animal life before he created human life. In fact the plants were created before animals.

Could it be that God knew that all life required plant life to exist? And since plants are necessary to our well-being an abundance of plant food would be a good thing right? Since plants absorb CO2 and expel oxygen one  could make the case that more CO2 helps plants to grow which in the end makes our lives better because of the abundance of oxygen in the air. It is more plausible to believe the plants were created first to absorb the CO2 from the atmosphere to prepare the earth for human habitation. So more plants would be great. Face it there is no plant life on any other planet and there is no life.

Here’s an idea for you, since we know plants love CO2 and can not get enough of it, and we know forests are loved by environmentalists and human habitations are despised, why not tear down all the cities around the world and replace them with parks with lots of flowers and trees? Imagine the huge carbon footprint cities leave behind with all those people milling around exhaling all that CO2 right into the atmosphere. How much lovelier a park would be with tall trees in place of those huge, ugly, tall buildings, not to mention the uptick in CO2 absorption rates.

Talking about creation and God’s provisions for life on this third rock from the sun, despising the Lord’s gifts and blessings is a big slap in the face to God don’t you think? I would like to remind you that oil, and “natural” gas are “NATURAL” and, were put here by God himself. He apparently thought they would be beneficial to life on earth since after he created everything he said it was all good! That means the earth and everything in it was good and created to sustain life on this planet. How is it then that something which God called good is now bad and is somehow harming the very creation which produced it in the first place? It is “natural” after all meaning it came from nature.

The students are concerned about the image and the statement being made by the church’s choices in investments. They felt that the church needed to walk the walk and not simply talk the talk. With that I agree! In large part the church is not living the life that God expects the church to lead. There is far too much creature in the church and not enough Creator. Now if the students were to speak out against that I would be standing arm and arm with them in their pursuit of holiness.

In the student’s statement they were concerned about “preserving the earth for future generations.” As far as leaving behind a better world for our children, I think the best way to do that would be to Preach the Gospel of His Kingdom and not some phony doctrine contrived by thieving, lying, power-hungry tyrants. Seeking to save the lost is what God expects the church to be doing. So I ask you, is divestiture in oil futures really that big a deal when the majority of the earth is going to hell in a hand basket?

We strain so hard at gnats and swallow huge camels in the process. Perhaps we ought to be focusing more on sin and not synthetics.

And that is the way I see it. What say you?

Confusion in the Gulf


Some people shouted one thing while others shouted something else. The crowd was confused. Most of the people didn’t even know why they had come together. Acts 19:32 (GW)
Classic shield logo, designed by Raymond Loewy...

Image via Wikipedia

It is BP’s problem some cry, no it is the Government’s problem cry others, while many claim  the problem is America’s addiction to oil. This one tries to out shout the other, while the average American citizen and especially those living in the Gulf region simply want the problem to be dealt with effectively and efficiently. Stop pointing fingers they cry and roll up your sleeves and get to work on finding a solution, quickly.

Confusion seems to be running the clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico. The whole scene is like watching an episode of the Keystone Kops in which the authorities are running in every direction and no one seems to have a clue on what to do.  The Keystone Kops make great movie comedy but a tragic display of leadership.

After our government claimed that we did not need or could not obtain larger ships to skim the Gulf oil spill, a giant-capacity skimming ship has arrived in U.S. waters.  Yet our government has us wondering whether it will permit the ship to join the cleanup effort.

The problem is not simply the Jones Act; it’s also that our Environmental Protection Agency may squelch the ability to use this giant ship.

The S. S. A-Whale is not like the mere 4,000-barrel-a-day vessels we’ve been using.  Its owners say this ship, a converted oil tanker, can gather 500,000 barrels a day.  By comparison, say the owners, the entire fleet our government has authorized for BP has only gathered 600,000 barrels—TOTAL—in the 70 days since the Deepwater Horizon explosion.  (NOTE:  500,000 barrels equals 21-million gallons.)

Adding insult to injury here is another report concerning the Dutch’s offer for help which came in 3 days after the spill occurred. Here we are 70 days and counting into this major oil spill and the situation goes from bad to worse.

The crisis and the chaos surrounding the Gulf oil spill makes a nice smoke screen to hide true aims and intentions behind. Although I can not say with absolute certainty I do believe the age old adage would apply here: “Actions speak louder than words”and Obama’s inaction shouts loud and clear his intentions. Of course Obama’s words have been pretty clear about exactly what he wants America to think about this oil spill. He would like very much for the population to grow extremely impatient with and angry at BP for this mess and their apparent lack of expedience in cleaning it up. All this gives Obama cover to enact even more of his freedom stealing agenda items with the help of his cronies in congress.

The arrogance and the wilful negligence of this administration is painfully obvious to anyone who cares to stop long enough to objectively assess the situation. I really do not care if BP is to blame or not for the cause of the spill. I do know that not everything that can be done is being done to clean up the mess. There will be plenty of time to point fingers and assess blame after we have done all we can to stop the spill and clean up the mess. All technologies, and all who are willing to help with the cleanup, should be engaged. If the Jones Act has not been revoked then it needs to be pronto. However all of this should have been decided on day one. All hands should already be on deck like Obama said they were.

The fact that this mess and the consequent inaction of the government has only gotten worse and not better proves that too much money and power is going to the federal government and it is time for states to assert their independence and act accordingly. Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida are the states affected the most by this disaster and they should be the ones coordinating the cleanup measure. If the federal government is to be involved at all it should be to make sure that the states are given all the resources they need and are free to act in their own best interests, which would be in the best interest of the country.

Truth is Fast Becoming an Endangered Species


Truth and the global warming debate
Quicker than the arctic ice can melt is the disappearance of truth from planet earth.

These people have exchanged God’s truth for a lie. So they have become ungodly and serve what is created rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen!

Romans 1:25 (GW)

Loon Alert: Canadian Writer Thinks China’s Infanicide is Sound Enviro Policy


3 Children are an inheritance from the Lord. They are a reward from him.
4 The children born to a man when he is young are like arrows in the hand of a warrior.
5 Blessed is the man who has filled his quiver with them. He will not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the city gate.
Psalms 127:3-5Open Link in New Window (GW)

The  environmentalist movement is anti-human life as this article proves. For anyone to think that regulating a man’s family by denying them the basic  human right to reproduce is insane. To think that trees and lakes, and birds and bees take precedence over human life is appalling. And yet this idea of population control is growing more pervasive throughout the environmental movement. We see it’s tentacles extended in our own country as congress debates their HEALTH CARE take-over legislation. The idea that there would be public policy implemented to curtail or control costs of providing health care to the sick based upon some arbitrary assessment as to life value ludicrous. AND YET it is a reality.

The bible states that children are an inheritance from the Lord and a people are blessed by them, and yet this anti-Christ religion of environmentalism teaches just the opposite.

In a sane world this whole notion of killing babies in order to provide a BETTER LIFE would be called what it is INSANE.

This writer and the whole environmentalist movement needs to be rewarded the DODO bird award for their loony ideas.

This one certainly has flown over the cuckoo’s nest.

The “inconvenient truth” overhanging the UN’s Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world.
A planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days.

Ironically, China, despite its dirty coal plants, is the world's leader in terms of fashioning policy to combat environmental degradation, thanks to its one-child-only edict.
Ironically, China, despite its dirty coal plants, is the world’s leader in terms of fashioning policy to combat environmental degradation, thanks to its one-child-only edict.
The intelligence behind this is the following:
-If only one child per female was born as of now, the world’s population would drop from its current 6.5 billion to 5.5 billion by 2050, according to a study done for scientific academy Vienna Institute of Demography.
-Doing nothing, by contrast, will result in an unsustainable population of nine billion by 2050.
The only fix is if all countries drastically reduce their populations, clean up their messes and impose mandatory conservation measures.
