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 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.
