Global Warming  

There is much talk about global warming these days.  People are told by some that the earth is dangerously warming, and we are also told by others that the earth has actually been cooling for the last decade (2000-2010).  Many who say the earth is warming also say man-made CO2 gas is accelerating it.  Al Gore says CO2 is bad for the planet, and others say its good for the planet (see Plants Need CO2).  So what are we to believe?  Most of us are not scientists and can only go by what the scientists tell us, and they don't agree!  Fortunately for us, temperature is directly measurable and not as subject to ideology as is evolution (however, as we have learned from the recent email scandal of the leading UN climate change scientist, people are more than willing to alter data to suit their own ideology).

The Johns Hopkins Glacier, Alaska

Let us consider what is common knowledge to find out if global warming is a reality.  The Johns Hopkins Glacier, like a giant river of ice, meets the sea at Glacier Bay National Park, a vast region where multiple glaciers meet, melt, and in some cases recede. In 1794, Captain George Vancouver and crew described the bay as just a small five-mile indent in a gigantic glacier that stretched off to the horizon. That massive glacier was more than 4,000 feet thick in places, up to 20 miles wide, and extended more than 100 miles to the St. Elias mountain range. By 1879, however, naturalist John Muir discovered that the ice had retreated more than 30 miles, forming an actual bay. By 1916, the Grand Pacific Glacier the main glacier credited with carving the bay had melted back 60 miles to the head of what is now Tarr Inlet.

So from this example, we can see that these glaciers have been melting for centuries, which necessarily means that the earth has been warming.  If the earth had been cooling for centuries, we would expect these and other glaciers around the world to be growing, and if there has been no change in temperature, we would expect them to stay about the same.  Pretty straight forward.

Now here is one place where evolutionists and creationists agree on something:  The earth has been steadily warming since the "last" ice age.  But we don't agree on when - the evolutionists say it ended around 10,000 years ago, while the creationists go by the Bible, which places a "mini ice age" just after the Flood (lasting only a few hundred years).  So, we are all in agreement that the Earth has been warming since the last ice age, because we have direct, measurable human records of glacier melt.

We also have evidence of temperature variations.  Many people don't know about the The Medieval Warm Period, which spanned from 950 to 1250 AD and corresponded with warmer temperatures in certain regions. During this time, ice-free seas and warm temperatures allowed the Vikings to colonize Greenland.  But there is evidence that this was a regional warming, possibly caused by an unaccounted for change in ocean currents.

Even though studies have shown the Earth has been cooling in the last decade (despite some regional high temp records), the overall trend over the last several millennia has been warming.  So I suppose the only question is whether or not man's carbon dioxide emissions are contributing to the process.  This is difficult to know.  But mind you, CO2 is measured in only a few parts-per-million (PPM), and some scientists reckon that CO2 is actually good for the planet.

One thing to keep in mind here is that this whole hysteria is driven by "old earth" scientists - the very same ones who are forcing false evolutionary doctrines upon us and our children.  So we must take that into consideration in anything they have to say.

BTW, I am a conservationist at heart.  I am sickened by the pollution we are causing to the planet, especially by synthetic materials -- mainly plastics -- many of which end up in our seas, and the rest end up buried in our Earth.  To me, this is a very great sin and I don't think our God will allow this to go on much longer.  I'm also alarmed at the over-fishing of our seas and the short-sightedness of those who know very well what they are doing.  Stupid, stupid people!

One more thought:  If burning oil is "bad for the planet", why did God provide so much of it, so readily available for us?  Did you know that it before we switched to kerosene, people used to burn whale oil in lamps for light.  Some whale species were on the verge of extinction, but within months everyone switched to kerosene and the whales were saved.

I leave you with this article below of one scientist who originally thought CO2 was bad for the planet, but after careful study has actually reversed his views.  Now that's being intellectually honest!


Scientist: Carbon Dioxide Doesn't Cause Global Warming
October 07, 2009 04:15 PM ET | Paul Bedard

A noted geologist who co-authored the New York Times bestseller Sugar Busters has turned his attention to convincing Congress that carbon dioxide emissions are good for the Earth and don't cause global warming. Leighton Steward is on Capitol Hill this week armed with studies and his book Fire, Ice and Paradise in a bid to show senators working on the energy bill that the carbon dioxide cap-and-trade scheme could actually hurt the environment by reducing CO2 levels.

"I'm trying to kill the whole thing," he says. "We are tilting at windmills." He is meeting with several GOP lawmakers and has plans to meet with some Democrats later this week.

Much of the global warming debate has focused on reducing CO2 emissions because it is thought that the greenhouse gas produced mostly from fossil fuels is warming the planet. But Steward, who once believed CO2 caused global warming, is trying to fight that with a mountain of studies and scientific evidence that suggest CO2 is not the cause for warming. What's more, he says CO2 levels are so low that more, not less, is needed to sustain and expand plant growth.

Trying to debunk theories that higher CO2 levels cause warming, he cites studies that show CO2 levels following temperature spikes, prompting him to back other scientists who say that global warming is caused by solar activity.

In taking on lawmakers pushing for a cap-and-trade plan to deal with emissions, Steward tells Whispers that he's worried that the legislation will result in huge and unneeded taxes. Worse, if CO2 levels are cut, he warns, food production will slow because plants grown at higher CO2 levels make larger fruit and vegetables and also use less water. He also said that higher CO2 levels are not harmful to humans. As an example, he said that Earth's atmosphere currently has about 338 parts per million of CO2 and that in Navy subs, the danger level for carbon dioxide isn't reached until the air has 8,000 parts per million of CO2.

Steward is part of a non-profit group called Plants Need CO2 that is funding pro-CO2 ads in two states represented by two key lawmakers involved in the energy debate: Montana's Sen. Max Baucus and New Mexico's Sen. Jeff Bingaman.
