A Christian's Grip on Reality

Here's a wonderful quote from a Christian on Global Warming.

"The average global temperature has DROPPED over the past 12 years. Don't give me this man-made global warming nonsense. God, and God alone is responsible for the climate conditions here on earth. It is nothing short of presumed arrogance to think that we can destroy what God has made."

The global temperature has been dropped for the past 12 years? Really? Where are you getting your information from, your pastor?

Here’s a quote from the Earth Policy Institute about 2007, the second warmest year on record.

“The year 2007 fits into a pattern of steadily increasing global average temperature, with the eight warmest years on record all occurring in the last decade.”

Don’t take my word for it though, check it out here

Don’t take their word for it either, check out any of a dozen or so sites with the same information. Are they all in a vast conspiracy with Al Gore to destroy Christianity and Capitalism?

You are entitled to your own opinion but you are not entitled to your own facts.

The average global temperature has been getting warmer; that’s a fact. The warmer average temperatures are melting glaciers, ice caps and ice pack; that’s also a fact. If this trend continues much longer the effects could be catastrophic; that is also a fact.

The only questions are whether this is part of a natural warming cycle or caused by human activity and whether or not there is anything we can do about it. The general consensus in the scientific community is that human activity is at least partially responsible.

If your god is controlling the global temperature then he’s pushing the world toward the brink of disaster. Maybe you should ask him to knock it off.
