I have been an global warming detractor for many years now. All this hype and false information being bantered about as truth needs to be dealt with with as much fervency as the proponents of the “Global warming’ religion. Stanley Hasegawa has written an insightful article looking into some of the hype associated with the global warming alarmist’s propaganda.
Disappearing arctic ice threatens the existence of polar bears. I have two thoughts on this. First, polar bears have to deal with disappearing arctic ice every single year:
Second, contrary to expectations, arctic sea ice extent increased in 2008 over 2007. Now one year does not constitute a trend. However, 2009 is also shaping up to be another exception to the continuing rapid shrinking of arctic ice. So far in 2009, Canada had a record late spring and a cool summer:
In addition, Antarctic sea ice extent has been increasing in recent years as well.
In any case, melting sea ice does not contribute to the threat of rising sea levels. What does contribute to rising sea levels is melting of ice that exists on land. Most land-based ice exists on Antarctica and to a lesser extent on Greenland. Global warming advocates claim that the ice on Antarctica is melting and contributing to rising ocean levels. This is not exactly true. There is melting of ice on western Antarctica, but the increase in ice on eastern Antarctica more than makes up for this: http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25349683-601,00.html
Global warming advocates also claim that ice in Greenland is melting and contributing to rising ocean levels. They claim that glacial ice from Greenland is entering the sea in increasing amounts. Well maybe, but then again:
Here are some scriptures to keep in mind.
God does want us to take care of the earth and not pollute it:
“The LORD God took the man and placed him in the orchard in Eden to care for it and to maintain it.” (Genesis 2:15)
Global warming predicts a catastrophic future for the earth as we know it. However, God promises that the normal rhythms of life will never stop until he causes the earth as we know it to cease to exist:
“And the LORD smelled the soothing aroma and said to himself, ‘I will never again curse the ground because of humankind, even though the inclination of their minds is evil from childhood on. I will never again destroy everything that lives, as I have just done.
‘While the earth continues to exist, planting time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease.'” (Genesis 8:21-22)
Here again we see that the normal rhythms of life will continue on until the end, when Jesus Christ returns:
“But as for that day and hour no one knows it not even the angels in heaven except the Father alone. For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the same at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Genesis 24:36-39)
That mankind is physically abusing the earth is only part a larger picture; only one symptom of a more fundamental issue:
“For I consider that our present sufferings cannot even be compared to the glory that will be revealed to us. For the creation eagerly waits for the revelation of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility not willingly but because of God who subjected it in hope 8:21 that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage of decay into the glorious freedom of God’s children. 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers together until now.” (Romans 8:18-22)
I am richly blessed in my marriage. I have two grown children. I am semi-retired. I have been a computer programmer, systems analyst, househusband and homeschool teacher. I love to walk, talk and eat, and write short articles about devoting our lives to Jesus.
Remember the word of God tells us to TEST ALL SPIRITS and see if they are of God. DO not believe everything that comes along especially when there is a PRICE TAG attached to it. Those who are propagating Global warming are seeking to profit from the hysteria they are causing. IF we believe God’s word then we know all things will continue as they have been until GOD decides to pull the plug on humankind. So therefore the thing we should be most concerned about is not Global warming but GLOBAL SIN. If we confess our sins HE is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all our unrighteous acts. God is able to keep us against any opposition. Because God created the heavens and the earth I believe God is able to keep things together until He decides enough is enough. What say you?
