Global Warming: Let Not Your Hearts Be Troubled
(Rather than bore you stiff with endless documentation, let me just say that the quotes in this message are well documented in two books and on one web site: Fred Singer’s Unstoppable Global Warming – Every 1,500 Years, Chris Horton’s Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming, and the web site globalwarminghysteria.com.There are many other sources, but these are fine starting points for one’s own studies.)
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”(II Tim. 1:7)
Fear is a trademark of the unsaved masses (Rev. 21:8), but faith is the trademark of the Christian.Over and over again the word of God exhorts the believer to shun the spirit of fear and simply trust God.
In John 14:1, Jesus says, “Let not your heart be troubled . . .”Psalm 27:3 says, “Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.”Perhaps you are familiar with Psalm 118:6, which says, “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?”Of course, these are only a few.Jesus even said in Luke 21:9 to “be not terrified.”
God wants His children to be at peace—not fearing anyone or anything.The scriptures are clear about that.
Yet, the devil’s crowd is filled with fear.Their lives are regulated by the fear of man, fear of sickness, fear of poverty, fear of the unknown, or, as in the case at hand, fear of the latest “crisis” generated by the fear mongers of the world.
On April 3, 2006, Time magazine ran a cover story titled “Be Worried.Be Very Worried.”What was it that we’re supposed to be so worried about?Global warming, of course, the latest “monster” to be trotted out of the laboratory of the “fearful and unbelieving.”(Rev. 21:8)Be very worried?No thanks.
No thanks because doing so would be a sin, as the above scripture indicates, and doing so would also constitute a mindless excursion into willful ignorance.
The fear mongers would have you to be terrified because that empowers them, and one way to terrify you is to manufacture a crisis in the name of science and then run around warning everyone about it.Paul warned us about this crowd in I Timothy 6:20 when he wrote of people pushing “science falsely so called.”
Throughout the twentieth century, the classic example of “science falsely so called” was Darwin’s theory of evolution.Nicely packaged with its fictional geologic column, eons of time, and willing accomplices in the scientific community, Darwin’s theory was embraced as a scientific fact by those looking for an alibi in the academic world and then promoted non-stop by their cousins in the media.And why shouldn’t it be so?They’re all the devil’s children, so they’re all looking for a convenient way to discredit the word of God.Even some “Christians” fell for this scheme and became known as theistic evolutionists.
Christians who fall for the global warming scare are no different.You were told by your Lord to not allow people to scare you, and you were told to be suspicious of anything with the name “science” branded on it.After all, most scientists remain unsaved with no use for your God and Bible.It’s only safe to assume that they’d be more apt to use the name of science to advance Satan’s causes rather than the Lord’s causes.After all, we’re not in the kingdom age yet.
True science, of course, never contradicts the Bible, but science falsely so called exists for the very purpose of contradicting the Bible and causing people to fear and believe things other than the Bible.Instead of saying, “It must be true because I read it in the Bible,” people are saying, “It must be true because most scientists believe in it, many government leaders believe in it, and many television personalities believe in it.”Just remember that the same people also believe in evolution, sodomite marriages, abortion, and acceptance of illegal immigration.
Fight global warming?No thanks.I can be more useful by fighting the global warmers, the crooks who created this monster for the purpose of empowering themselves by terrorizing society.After all, Jesus said nothing at all about fighting global warming; but he did say, “be not terrified.”
And that’s exactly what they’re trying to do to you—make you terrified.Here’s Stephen Schneider in Discover Magazine, October 1989:
To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have.Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.
Well, that’s nice to know, and, if you’ve seen Al Gore’s ridiculous docuganda (propaganda disguised as a documentary), then you’ve seen that strategy demonstrated to the extreme.
Speaking of Al Gore, here’s a 2006 quote from the inconvenient idiot:
I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of the factual presentations (emphasis added)
Let not your hearts be troubled.Those people are a bunch of agenda-driven liars, and it’s easily proven.
There are a number of facts that you should know concerning the global warming issue. We’ll cover this information in a fables and facts format.Your patience will be necessary and greatly appreciated.
FABLE: It cannot be disputed that man-made global warming exists because there is scientific consensus that it exists.
FACT:The fact that many scientists agree that global warming is caused by man is only consensus, not scientific consensus.
True science is based on observation and experimentation, not agenda-driven votes among scientists.No one has proven by observation and experimentation that man causes global warming.
If I were to claim that Hell isn’t a literal place because many preachers do not believe in it, most people reading this message would think that Brother Melton has lost his mind.Yet, many professing Christians are swallowing this man-made global warming nonsense because of the number of so called scientists that are pushing it.Numbers actually mean very little in this issue, especially when we consider that the scientists calling the shots run a risk of losing their funding if they bring forth any opposing views. Why wouldn’t there be a consensus among a bunch of unsaved men who fear losing their careers?
Besides, there are many good and honest scientists who reject the notion that man causes global warming.For instance:
Dr. Richard S. Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at MIT, says,
Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early twenty-first century’s developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally average temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree . . .
Bob Carter is Professor at the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at JamesCookUniversity in Australia.Speaking of Al Gore’s global warming alarmism, Dr. Carter says that
Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic.It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.
Speaking of computer models being an unreliable means for predicting climate change, Princeton physicist Freeman Dyson says that these computer models are
essential tools for understanding climate.They are not yet adequate tools for predicting climate. (emphasis added)
Dr. Fred Singer is distinguished research professor at GeorgeMasonUniversity and author or editor of several books addressing climate change.Addressing the climate changes of the past and how they never led to catastrophes, Singer says
The Medieval and Roman warmings, with their intervening cold periods, present a huge problem for the advocates of man-made global warming.
Though not a scientist, Senator James Inhofe is Chairman of the Committee on Environment and Public Works.After much study of the global warming issue, Senator Inhofe went on record and said that the present global warming movement is
The greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people
Wouldn’t that warrant our looking a little deeper into the issue—a US Senator claiming that this is the greatest hoax in American history?I should hope so.
You’ve heard the alarming radio ads and seen the television ads.School children across America are being spoon-fed this propaganda, many even being required to watch Al Gore’s docuganda production.Businesses are being intimidated into “going green,” and many Christians are being swept into the whole mess, thinking that they are somehow better Christians if they help to “save the planet.”
I fear that Satan is doubled over in laughter at the fact that so many people, Christians included, so easily fall for such a scheme when the evidence is so lacking.I fear that we live amongst a generation of feelers rather than one of sound thinkers (II Tim. 1:7).
The notion that man-made global warming is a fact because of consensus among scientists is a weak joke for emotional suckers.No thinking person would fall for it.
FABLE:Global temperatures are rapidly rising like never before.
FACT:Global temperatures appear to be rising like never before, but the appearance changes when one takes a closer look.
The apparent temperature increases are based mostly on ground station readings, not the atmospheric readings (satellite, balloon, mountaintop, etc.) which show no significant increases.The ground station readings are not very reliable for two good reasons:
(1) The ground stations are not evenly distributed across the globe.This has been
especially true since the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s when many stations
in cold Siberia were closed.Hence: the alarmist like to tout the 1990’s as the hottest decade on record.Well, duh!If temperatures aren’t monitored in the colder regions, the global average reading will naturally rise.But this is only appearance, not science.
(2) Most ground stations are conveniently located in or near urban and industrial areas which show higher readings than most of the rural planet.
As for the temperatures rising like never before, that all depends on who draws the chart.If a global warmer draws the chart, he will naturally pick a cooler date as his starting point, a date like the 1970’s, for instance, when the same crowd was having a global cooling panic!Yes, it’s warmer now than in 1975, but why start the baseline in the 1970’s?If one started his chart in the 1930’s or in the Medieval Warm period, when temperatures were warmer than today, he could conclude that global cooling was occurring.In other words, at any given time, one could argue in favor of global warming or cooling.My eleven year-old daughter is old compared to her two year-old brother, but when compared to her great, great grandmother, she becomes very young.Is the globe warming?Yes, it is, but it is also cooling.
FABLE:Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant that causes temperature increases.
FACT: Carbon Dioxide is a necessary part of nature, not a pollutant, and there’s no evidence that it causes temperatures to rise.
Plants breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen.We breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide.This is God’s design, not a polluted system.
As for carbon dioxide causing temperature increases, the alarmists have it backwards.Scientific studies have shown that temperature increases occur before carbon dioxide increases, not after them.This is largely due to the oceans (over 70% of the earth’s surface) expelling more carbon dioxide during warming periods.
So, temperature increases cause a rise in carbon dioxide, not the other way around.Al Gore likes to impress people with his big chart showing carbon dioxide increases and temperature increases running neck and neck, but he fails to prove which came first.
FABLE:The “hockey stick” graph shows gradual global warming for thousands of years, then a rapid increase just recently.
FACT: The hockey stick graph is a fabrication produced by agenda-driven global warmers and does not reflect true global temperatures.
It was during the Clinton-Gore years that the greens (or reds, take your pick) shifted into high gear with their environmental push.In 1995, the United Nations’ International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a chart showing that the climate is always changing.This chart showed the Medieval Warm Period (about to 1000-1400 A.D.), a time when Vikings farmed in Greenland.This created an embarrassing situation for the global warmers since no one was “polluting” the planet with SUVs during this time, the industrial revolution was nowhere in sight, the earth’s population wasn’t even a third of what it is today, yet something caused the temperatures to rise.This chart also showed the warm period that occurred from the 1890’s through the 1940’s.Needless to say, this was an inconvenient chart for the green team.
But that was all “fixed” six years later, in 2001, when the IPCC published a new chart.Could you guess what was missing from the new chart?You got it, man!The entire 400 year Medieval Warm Period vanished as did the warming of the early 1900’s!(This is “science,” you understand.)This made the chart show moderate global temperatures from 1000 A.D. all the way up to the late 1900’s.Then, can you guess what happened?Bingo!Things started heating up, thus making the chart look like a horizontal hockey stick.One of the green heads actually said, “We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period,” and that’s just what they did.
FABLE: Global Warming causes hurricanes and other severe weather.
FACT: Severe weather has occurred since the beginning of time, during cool and warm climates, and there is no scientific data that proves global warming is causing any significant change in severe weather today.
Al Gore’s docuganda, An Inconvenient Truth, comes subtly packaged in a DVD jacket with a hurricane forming from the top of a smoke stack (There’s some more “science” for you!).This scheme was supposed to be real effective since it followed the severe 2005 hurricane season.In fact, the “scientists” predicted an even worse 2006 hurricane season.Too bad they forgot to check with GOD:“. . . the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.”(Nah. 1:3)The 2006 hurricane season came and went virtually unnoticed.
William Gray of ColoradoStateUniversity is one of the world’s foremost hurricane experts.In 2003 Gray said that
Some individuals will interpret the recent upswing in hurricane activity during 1995 and 1996 and [my expected higher-than-normal hurricane activity in the next several years] as evidence of climate changes due to increased man-made greenhouse gasses.There is no reasonable way that such interpretations can be accepted.
“Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.”(Jer. 23:19)“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.” (Jer. 25:32)“Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.” (Jer. 30:23)
Man-made global warming that causes hurricanes?Naaaahh.
FABLE: Receding glaciers and calving ice shelves are proof of global warming.
FACT: Glaciers have been receding and advancing for thousands of years, and ice shelves have been breaking off just as long.This is a normal part of nature and has nothing to do with man-made global warming.
Ice obviously melts in warmer climate, so, in that sense, some warming is occurring, but this is nothing to panic over, and it certainly isn’t man-made or global.Scientists know of over thirty different periods of glaciers growing and then retreating, and none of these led to a global catastrophe.
Furthermore, the global warmers who delight in pointing out instances of melting ice also delight in ignoring instances of growing ice, sometimes in the exact same region (the Patagonia region, for instance).As Chris Horton points out in his Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming, this has more to do with “regional land use and atmospheric moisture changes” than with global warming.Regional warming due to “land use and atmospheric moisture changes” is one thing, but global warming due to irresponsible human conduct is quite another.
FABLE: The polar ice caps are melting and will cause a rise in sea level, possibly flooding major cities.
FACT: Melting ice in the oceans does not cause any rise in sea level since the ice is merely changing forms.Only the melting of land ice into the sea, such as Greenland and Antartica, is capable of causing sea level rises, and these places are not warming.
Al Gore has even predicted that Manhattan could end up twenty feet under water.In fact, he graphically illustrates this on his docuganda film.The website www.co2science.org states that
At the current sea-level-equivalent ice-loss rate of .05 millimeters per year, it would take a full millennium to raise global sea level by just 5 cm, and it would take fully 20,000 years to raise a single meter.
Relax Manhattan, for at least the next 20,000 years, you have enough troubles already.
FABLE: At least global warming advocates are doing something to help the environment.
FACT: There is nothing helpful about promoting an anti-capitalistic agenda that is based on gross exaggerations and outright lies.
How is the environment helped by government regulations that force America to depend on foreign oil from nations that sponsor terrorism?How is the environment helped by advocates like Al Gore flying around and polluting the skies in private jets while preaching to us about saving the planet?How is the environment helped by the purchase of ridiculous carbon offsets which do nothing to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere?How is the environment helped when free nations like America are expected to pass laws and raise taxes to decrease greenhouse gases, yet nations like communist China (four times our population) are given a free pass?
This is crazy!These people are psychotic nuts, and you’ll be one if you listen to them.
I’m not in favor of polluting the environment, but I’m also not in favor of exalting man to the level of thinking he can actually destroy the planet!Man has gotten too big for his britches when he starts thinking that the earth is warming and hurricanes are increasing because of him.Friend, this is a big, big, planet!
The human population of the earth compared to the size of the earth isn’t hardly even noticeable!Did you know that every person on the planet could actually stand within the city limits of Jacksonville, Florida?(Minus all the buildings, of course)Isaiah hits this nail right on the head by saying, “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?”
Cease ye from man!That’s good.Get your eyes off of man and what you think man can do.In the 1970’s, the watermelons (green on the outside, but red to the core) were yelping about global cooling.It didn’t happen!Yet, these swindlers are being given credibility again in policy-making and in the media.There’s nothing you can do about that, but just make sure they get no credibility with you!Just make sure that GOD is the only One capable of scaring you:“. . . Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecc. 12:13)“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”(Mat. 10:28)
Christian, let not your heart be troubled.Global warming is nothing more than a natural occurrence that comes and goes with time.It has never been catastrophic, and it will not be catastrophic until God gives the order, not man (II Peter ).Sure, man does make some contribution to temperature rises, but the contribution is so small that it’s hardly worth mentioning, and it definitely isn’t causing global warming.So relax!God is on the throne, and He has some awesome plans for planet earth, and He has some awesome plans for YOU, if you are truly saved.
