Actually, the year 2008 marked the tenth consecutive year of no global warming according to Dr. Michael R. Fox and a host of other climatologists. (Article).
President-elect Obama, after meeting with Al Gore recently, told the press, "The time for delay is over, the time for denial is over."
Gore said of his discussions with the President-elect that, "Climate crises will be a top priority of his administration."
I personally believe all Christians are called to be stewards of the earth and the environment. It is a gift from our Creator. Please understand I am not questioning our responsibility to that biblical commandment, I am questioning the fact that some data gets front page coverage while other data is buried or completely lost in news reporting on the subject.
And there continues to be a growing chorus of qualified scientists that have a very different view of global warming then the one we are most often served on the evening news.
We must also keep in mind the it is well-documented that Mr. Gore is personally and deeply invested in the "green" industry global warming is creating. (Article). I have provided a link to one pretty good article on the subject, but you only have to Google Gore and global warming investments or something similar and there are pages on the subject. If he is successful with his "green" business plan, he stands to make hundreds of millions---some say billions of dollars.
Dr. Richard Lindzen, climatologist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is asking in a paper written just a few months ago, (1) Has the global warming alarm become the goal itself, instead of the result of scientific research? (2) Is climate science really designed to answer questions or promote political goals?
Some scientists are much more direct than Dr. Lindzen.
Climatologist Dr. Richard Keen of the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at University of Colorado says, "Earth has cooled since 1998 in defiance of the predictions by the U.N.-IPCC. The global temperature in 2007 was the coldest in a decade and the coldest of the millennium...which is why 'global warming' is now called 'climate change'."
Nobel Prize winner for physics, Ivar Gigever says, "I am a skeptic...global warming has become a new religion."
Dr. Michael R. Fox has done an excellent job putting together a recent overview of how a number of highly qualified climatologists feel about global warming. I recommend you read it, because the new administration is prepared to invest massive amounts of US dollars into a number of Gore's companies. They see it as a way to create new jobs and also cool down the planet.
Not to worry that the planet is apparently cooling itself down. I suppose that is why the time for delay and denial is over. We must act quickly before the next snowstorm closes our streets and highways.
Dr. Eduardo Tonni of the Committee for Scientific Research in Buenos Aires and head of the Paleontology Department at the University of La Plata has said, "The global warming scare mongering has its justification in the fact that it is something that generates funds."
Indeed it does.
Don't forget to take your coat when you go to the next global warming community action meeting.
You may also want to take your boots--it occasionally gets quite deep.

  1. I remember when my father told me that the world was round. I did not believe him. It didn't look like a ball to me.

    Man once believed that the earth was the center of the universe. Galalio was severely repremanded for stating otherwise.

    Those who depart from the othodoxy become subject to consequences.

    I now know that the world is round. I have seen evidence from airplanes and pictures from space.
    I also understand that even though I see the stars rotating across the sky at night the earth is not at the center of the universe. The universe does not rotate around me.

    I have no idea why scientists would jump on the global warming band wagon when the earth's temperature has not departed from known upper and lower limits experienced historically, unless it is money.

    Al Gore and his kind have an agenda. They fund climate research. Those who come back with the 'right' answer get more research dollars. Those who do not don't. It doesn't take long before all climate researchers agree that there is global warming and we caused it.

    Everybody says it, it must be so?
    God gave each of us a brain. We should use it.

    When the Vikings settled on Greenland they called it Greenland because it was green. It was warmer then in the midevial warming period than it is today. A cooling trend set in called the 'Little Ice Age'. Temperatures bottomed out in the mid 1600's and started rising.

    We are not near as warm as we were in the year 1000 and not near as cold as the mid 1600's.

    It is not Global Warming.
    It is not Climate Change.

    What we have is a natural climate cycle.

  2. The big snow fall is a short term consequence of increased moisture in the air from the accelerated melting of glaciers and polar ice plus warming oceans.

    Now, why would all that ice be melting faster? hmmmmm....

  3. Meanwhile, 11 businesses in Seattle , which are frequented by the people Gary spends so much time demonizing and lying about, received terrorist threats. Will Gary acknowledge this and comment upon it (supporting the threats perhaps?), or like the arson of the gay friendly church and assassination of the Democratic party leader in AR, will he simply ignore it. Because, really HE's the victim in all this.

    LOL!!! Keep drinkin' the Kool-Aid Mark.

    Well, given that we haven't had snow like that in YEARS (since I was a kid), I guess global warming wasn't happening until just this last month. So, sure, believe global warming now, but if that's your evidence, then you have to admit they've been lying for the last 8-10 years.

    [Big Red Glass Pitcher]: "Oh Yeah!"

    Here's to people thinking for themselves. :-) Good luck with that.

  5. As if those talking about global climate change are out to trick you, or deceive you. I'm going to ramble a bit here.

    Its a simple decision tree, that arrives at one of several answers:

    If we can't do anything about the changing climate, or its not changing at all investing in the news technologies will still have lasting benefit. Climate or not we will all benefit from having large energy sources not dependent on non-renewable resources and fossil fuels specifically.

    If we are part of the problem, we get those benefits of the new technologies and a measure of control that we don't have now.

    What do we know?

    11 of the 12 hottest years on record were in the 14 prior to 2007.

    The volume of ice being frozen each year at the arctic poles is down to 50% of what it was just 10 years ago (not the area of ice that those denying the warming trend bring up, but the area times the thickness)

    Our weather is a giant heat fueled engine - when we get large masses of cold air that normally stayed up north being pushed down far to the south of its usual haunts its because somewhere else has gotten too hot just like this winter - watch the satellite images - air from the arctic circle beelines right down through central canada towards the east coast without missing a step or slowing - something is displacing the cold air from its native habitat.

    and much more BUT

    That could all go away tomorrow - if you just look at geological records and the cycle of ice ages that have gone before our 'inter-glacial period' should be nearing a close with the return of another ice age. The mini-ice age of the 17th century corresponded to an almost absence of sunspots - or most recent cycle is at its low ebb and is way behind in the size and number of sunspots when compared to the same point in the previous records in this new cycle. If the sun just suddenly stopped 'spotting' we would have a whole different sent of problems.

    So what do we do? What everyone always does - prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Develop the new renewable energy production infrastructure - they are useful whether there is global warming or not, they are just MORE useful if there is global warming. If an ice age suddenly shows up we can ALWAYS build more fossil fuel plants - we got that tech down already. But if we haven't invested and built much of the new stuff when disaster hits we won't have time to do so then.

    And finally - what is with the negativity? Do you really think that people are being deliberately deceptive, that they are 'making up' concerns about climate change just to upset or somehow control you? Even if they disagree with someone shouldn't you be able to expect a Christian to be at least try and discuss both sides of view? I mean, that would be what's consistent with the 'Judeo-Christian values' this site supposedly exists to support wouldn't it?

  6. Eric,

    If you truly want a world in which people think for themselves, organized religion probably isn't the answer.

    Also, you seem to be behind the curve here. Even the Bush neo-cons have acknowledged the existence of global warming. Their argument is with the cause, not the existence.

    Time will tell who's right. I really hope I'm wrong about the cause, but I'd rather error on the side of caution.

  7. Hi Mark,

    Suppose your comment read "Time will tell who's right. I really hope I'm wrong about Hell, but I'd rather err on the side of caution."?

  8. Mimi,

    If the vast majority of respected scientists told me that there was overwhelming scientific evidence of Hell, then my position probably WOULD be exactly as you wrote it.

    Cheers!

    Oh no! For a planet that's allegedly zillions of years old (hyperbole), we've had a few allegedly warmers years in the last couple hundred years of recorded temperatures. Oooh... Big "long term trend."

    "Do you really think that people are being deliberately deceptive, that they are 'making up' concerns about climate change just to upset or somehow control you?"

    Yep... Big money in all the green hooplah

    "I mean, that would be what's consistent with the 'Judeo-Christian values'"

    Who ever said I'm a Jew or Christian? What, you think it's only Jews and Christians that disagree with all the "data" on the Global warming? We sure give ourselves a lot of credit for our ability to mess with the environment... Have you ever looked at how big the earth really is? Did you know you can take the land mass of Oregon and pack all the people in the world into Oregon and give them each a two car garage space to stand in (not counting lakes, tops of mountains, or other non-inhabitable places). Yeah, all those tons of people could all fit in Oregon. You know what the real problem is, it's the ants around my house causing house-warming because they walk all over the place, breath, etc. It takes a lot of work to be able to lift things many times the size of your own body, and that work all generates heat. When I put my ice cubes in my Pepsi, they're just not quite as cold as they used to be because of those seemingly insignificant ants and the dang house warming effect they cause. I know this because I've been paying attention to them and studying them for the last 200 minutes! (and that's a LONG TIME... wow!)

    We like to think ourselves big and having big effects on our world (or at least the big investors who want to rake in the "Green" do), but we're not nearly as important as we think we are...

  10. [i]Who ever said I'm a Jew or Christian?[/i]

    No me, but this is a site dedicated to 'Advancing Judeo-Christian values' so assuming those is a given especially in the blog author to whom the comment is in response to you.

    Are you saying you write this blog Eric?
