OK, so I’m ticked. Usually that’s not a very good thing to be while driving, but when writing, it can be the impetus for some great commentary. That is, unless you’re writing an e-mail to your soon-to-be ex, but I digress…
I have long held suspicion about the so-called “Green Movement.” In case you need a refresher, it is beyond question for some members of the “intellectual elite” that the world is undergoing global warming at an alarming rate. And based on the words of Barack Obama to the U.N. recently, it would appear that the sky is falling. All of this is based on a the preconceived notion that all of the scientific community is completely in union on this scientific “fact,” even though at least 31,000 scientists beg to differ.
Now, I don’t claim to be a scientist, but a simple Google search will reveal that the idea that global warming is primarily manmade is hogwash. That’s right, it’s a myth. Just take the following excerpt, for example:
Johan Feddema, acting chair and professor of geography at KU, studies global warming. Atmospheric science is a program in geography at KU. He says he is skeptical of any one phenomenon being the direct cause of global warming because there are so many climate variables that factor into global temperatures. (Emphasis Mine)
Did you catch that? It cannot be just one factor. There are many factors that go into climate change, but apparently the main factor has to do with the variation in sun spots. Writing in Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1500 Years, by physicist Fred Singer and economist Dennis Avery, they note that most of the earth’s recent warming occurred before 1940, and thus before much human-emitted CO2. Moreover,
physical evidence shows 600 moderate warmings in the earth’s last million years. The evidence ranges from ancient Nile flood records, Chinese court documents, and Roman wine grapes to modern spectral analysis of polar ice cores, deep seabed sediments, and layered cave stalagmites. Unstoppable Global Warming shows the earth’s temperatures following variations in solar intensity through centuries of sunspot records, and finds cycles of sun-linked isotopes in ice and tree rings.
So if it’s all just made up, why are people buying into this drinking The Green Agenda Cool-Aid like its going out of style? Like all myths, if it’s not grounded in reality, there simply has to be a good spin machine used to manufacture the publicity to conjure up feelings of fear, blame, and uneasiness to get people to pay attention. And one quick look at your major news outlets will reveal one heck of an ad campaign being hoisted onto an unsuspecting public.
While it is possible that human beings may play a very small role in the heating up of our planet, it is vital that we as a Christian community wake up to the huge agenda that is being rammed down our throats, and it boils down to this:The green movement is all about reducing the world’s population.
Just take a look at the following title (which is the premise found in many articles involving climate change currently): “Birth control could help combat climate change.” The thesis behind this theory is that by giving contraceptives out to developing countries, it will help to slow the population growth that, they believe, causes the rising of the planet’s temperature (while at the same time, it is being reported that the “U.S. northeast may have the coldest winter in a decade): They quote an editorial (not even a study) in a British medical journal entitled Lancet that states that because there are 200 million women worldwide desiring contraceptives that don’t have access to them, this results in 76 million unintended pregnancies every year. We’re not sure where that unscientific editorial got those numbers, or who really believes those children are unintended — the mothers who bore the children, or the powers that be that are terrified that a third-world nation could out populate them.
Yet as one blog entitled, “The Evangelical Ecologist,” pointed out, “And then there’s China, famous for it’s one-child policy. It currently holds the title of world’s worst greenhouse gas emitter. With such a policy in place for the past 40 years shouldn’t China be on the bottom of the list?.” Thus if China can’t get this green machine thing right, and they’ve butchered countless babies and children, the question has to be asked: Can we REALLY solve global warming by population control?
By taking off our green glasses and revealing the wizard behind the curtain of this nice globally conscience motivated movement we see that this is none other than a furthering of Margret Sanger’s anti-God, anti-life, anti-family legacy that still promotes eugenic policies (Thanks Planned Parenthood!)in order to suppress, to the point of elimination, the type of people that The Green Agenda deems undesirable. And Geologist Ian Pilmer, who has a much longer view of the earth’s history than merely the last century, who sees global warming as “an entirely natural phenomenon with many precedents in history,” has hit it on the head: Global warming is the new religion of First World urban elites.
It makes sense, really. For when God is replaced as the center of one’s life, then anything else can take His place.Truly, there are no atheists; just men and women making something more important than their Origin. And right now, global warming is the deity of the month. Just as Satan said to Adam and Eve that “they could be like gods, determining for themselves what is good and evil,” the liberal elite have gobbled down that entire fruit and determined clearly what is good and what is evil (in their eyes): earth good, people bad.
Please understand me: I am all for taking care of the environment. God commanded Adam to tend the garden, and because I’m from his same ilk, I am called to take care of the planet, and do the little things I can, like recycle. Yet to a point. If it comes down to whether a forest remains standing or an unborn baby gets to live or a family gets to eat, I’ll be happy to approve of a new parking lot.
If global warming were really caused by human beings, and if I could make any prediction on why it is happening, I would base it on Romans 8: “All of creation is groaning, waiting for the redemption of our bodies.” For just as Jesus said the Sabbath was made for man and not the other way around, we must remember that the earth was created for us, not for us to be subservient to some absurd agenda that does not take into account Jesus’ words that the Father cares for His children. When we don’t follow God’s plan for our lives, and instead try to live life in a way that we deem best, things are going to go badly, and that includes the environment.
So, maybe we should all be ticked and raise a stink over the Green Agenda Elitists and their power grabs. For while they are paving the way for first world economies to plunge headlong into the ocean like all the glaciers that are claimed to be are disappearing, because there are not enough workers to replace the current generation (remember the old phrase, “IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!?), I’ll take as many “uncultured, third world” children as possible, and I’ll be grateful for those “backward” places like Africa that will help to rebuild the world on the cornerstone of every society: the family.
