Hoax Alert: Human-Caused Global Warming
Posted by David Wheaton | Wednesday, November 19, 2008 | 5:27 pm CT
The hysteria over human-caused global warming can only be described as apocalyptic humanism. It has every bit the religious fervor and devotion (“Save the planet!” “The science is beyond dispute.”) that any Christian has for the end times. Why should we be surprised? When man refuses to worship God, he will worship himself and the earth (Romans 1:18-31) and also work to proselytize others to his religion.
Humanistic environmentalists – like Al Gore, so-called “scientific experts”, and Barack Obama in this video promising to fund with your tax-dollars one of the biggest hoaxes ever foisted upon mankind - view man as being less important than the earth and its creatures. Hence, issues like population control (e.g. abortion, small families, euthanasia), relocation to urban centers (e.g. “sustainable communities”, multi-family dwellings), and government over-restriction on energy exploration and use and building development are their tenets of faith. The extent and deleterious ramifications of humanistic environmentalism are endless.
The Christian worldview, on the other hand, based on Genesis 1:26-31 and other passages, puts man at the top of creation and commands him to be a wise steward of the earth and its resources. Man in his fallen state will rape and abuse the earth yet the Christian should be for conservation, wise use, development, and replenishment for the betterment of humans and creation. The sad thing is that many Christians are falling for the myth of human-caused global warming like the rest of the world.
I would highly encourage you to get your information on biblical environmentalism from Cornwall Alliance. “They Get It” exactly right. Sign up for their newsletter while you’re there to counteract the total brainwash that is taking place at every level of our society. Here is what they had to say about the Obama video:
Speaking to a climate change summit yesterday, President-elect Barack Obama put a high priority on fighting global warming.
“Few challenges facing America–and the world–are more urgent than combating climate change,” Obama said by video.
The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear. Sea levels are rising. Coastlines are shrinking. We’ve seen record drought, spreading famine, and storms that are growing stronger with each passing hurricane season. Climate change and our dependence on foreign oil, if left unaddressed, will continue to weaken our economy and threaten our national security.His words echo discredited claims of global warming activists for over twenty years. They also fly in the face of mounting evidence against manmade, catastrophic global warming, mounting numbers of scientists who reject the hypothesis, and mounting economic studies showing that money spent to fight warming will be wasted.
The rate of sea level change is no faster now than it was before industrialization, which is (and was) extremely slow. Severe weather shows no correlation with global average temperature; in fact, northern hemisphere tropical cyclone activity was lower in the last two years than in the previous thirty.
If the President-elect wants to increase America’s energy independence, he should actively support policies that encourage the construction of new nuclear power plants, the development of clean coal technologies, and the expansion of domestic drilling. Innovation, not government intervention, will bolster our economy and strengthen our national security.
