I saw a news show where they said global warming would bring about the next ice age. Apparently the melting of the ice on the poles would disrupt the currents in the ocean which would disrupt weather patterns and thus bring about the next ice age. It was interesting, but not something we need to worry about in the very near future.

Ashley: If you indeed believe the Global Warming hypothesis, and are as concerned about the environment as you claim you are, there are a few things you should do immediately (if you're already not doing them):

(1) Stop eating meat. Food animal production causes deforestation, methane & CO2 production, water consumption and manure contamination.

(2) Turn off your heat & AC: Major fossil fuel burners.
---jerry6593 on 6/23/07


Ashley-2:

(3) Ride a bicycle only. Even ethanol uses more energy to produce than it provides-and it makes lots of CO2 during fermentation.

(4) Forget the changeover to flourescent light bulbs - too much mercury pollution.

(5) You could stop exhaling CO2, but that would be a little over the top.

Now after you've done all that, go to the ocean, put your finger in the water and see how high the water level rises. That's how much difference you've made to the global climate.

About the Polar Bears.

I recently read there are over a dozen Polar Bears types. Two herds are shrinking in size, four are expanding and the rest are stable.

Instead of depending on scientific methods of determining polarcaps shrinking, try doing a little research about past voyages of famous seamen especially during the 1100 to 1400 AD years. Captains easily plotted their courses near the poles where ice is now formed. Would that mean it was definately hotter during those years than today?

I support the three R's and I agree that we should avoid polluting our planet, but this is because we are affected locally (cancer, lung problems, etc.), not because this is having that great of an effect globally.

We have been through several Ice Ages interspaced by warming periods. The Polar Ice caps have melted and expanded many times and will continue to do so, with or without our help.
---lorra8574 on 6/21/07




I dont know how far a polar bear can swim, but I do know that sooner or later the earth will eventually have some kind of adverse effect from all the man-made pollution, it's only common sense. My opinion.
---sue on 6/21/07


Ashley: You said "get your facts right before you open your mouth." I think you would be wise to heed your own advice. You seem to be driven by emotion and are easily swayed by political propaganda. Conversely, I am a physicist, and REAL science does not support Al Gore's Hollywood fantasy. "The temp has risen here at least ten degrees each day in the last thirty years." According to my calculations, it is now over 100,000 degrees on your planet.

Catherine ... The Bible does not say how God made the globe, or the universe.
Might He not have made the Big Bang?
---alan_of_UK on 6/21/07


Living in Canada, The artic ice is melting and yes, polar bears are dying because men are too stupid and arrogant to open their eyes to the problem. When all the ice is gone, the ozone layer is gone, fresh water is non existant, trees are gone and you have no more oxygen to breath, then what will you do. No wonder many species are now extinct in the world. Through ignorance and greed, men destroy everything they touch and don't care.
---ashley on 6/20/07


The public is being bombarded daily from nearly every avenue with the notion that the universe began with a cosmic accident-Sometimes referred to as "the big bang"- And slowly evolved into the universe we see today including all life in it. What [people won't come up with to discredit God.] What will people come up with next?
---catherine on 6/20/07




Sue, I think you fell for the propaganda that the Planet Earth series was putting forth. The Arctic is still covered with ice and polar bears are not starving because they have no ice. If you habitually watch nature shows, you will know that animals die of sickness and starvation, not to mention the ones that are killed and eaten by other animals. Polar bears are highlighted because they are cute and cuddly and pull on the heart strings.
---ralph7477 on 6/20/07


Additionally Sue, polar bears are great swimmers and can swim a hundred miles if they want to. It is quite unlikely that polar bears are drowning, as the alarmists would have you believe.
---ralph7477 on 6/20/07


I watched a special on TV called Planet Earth (i think) and it showed Polar Bears dieing of starvation or drowning because the ice caps that they need to hunt upon are melting. This never happened before.
---sue on 6/20/07


The Bible tells that the heaven & earth we are living in now is reserved for fire, till the day of judgment for destruction of ungodly men.

That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. (2 Peter 3:7-11)

Why should we worry about this happening gradually in God's patience to give a chance for the rebellious man...

Instead the concerns should be how to address the man made problems due to our sinful nature.
---Ephre3798 on 6/20/07


It seems like everyone is trying to blame something or someone for the climate change - CO2, volcanoes, burning fossil fuels, El Nino, even President Bush.

Greenhouse gases are not the root problem.

The root cause of global warming (and everything else) is not because of what is written above, but because of the increase of sin in the world. It's written that the end generation is the most wicked in the history of the world. But you haven't seen anything yet, it's going to get worse.
---Steveng on 6/19/07


Global warming is a curse upon the earth for the evil of this planet even the people of God have no faith and look to science.

About thirty years ago 'experts' said we were heading for a new ice age & oil was about to run out.

Thirty years later 'experts' say it's global warming & oil is about to run out-again.

Records show Europe suffered an extensive long-term increase in temperature in the 1600's so it's quite likely our planet goes through temperature cycles.

No one has proved that human activity is the problem.

Meanwhile multi-nationals cash in on the fear-$$$$$$$$$$$$$- up go the fuel prices.

Jerry: I guess life is fine on your own planet. on Earth, men are killing the planet. The temp has risen here at least ten degrees each day in the last thirty years. fifty days over the 100 degree mark. pollution is choking our oxygen, severe storms never seen rage around us. fires burn, floods, tornados, hurricanes. get your facts right before you open your mouth. its caused by gases and pollutants going into our atmosphere. the polar ice caps are melting. without trees, no oxygen, you die.
---ashley on 6/19/07


look global warming has nothing to do with holes in the ozone layer. global warming is due to green house gasses reflecting infered light ( coming from the sun ) back on to earth again and again and again. holes in the ozone layer are due to CFCs extra and the the ozone layer stops in simple terms solar flares hitting earth and has nothing to do with the melting ice caps thats green house gasses. look if you dont understand somthing look it up on wikipedia or somthing and save me the trouble please...

Ashley: You are seriously mistaken. Both the National Enquirer and Al Gore's "The Convenient Lie" are poor sources for atmospheric science.

Steven: Your numbers add up to well over 100%. CO2 has a slight greenhouse effect only in arid areas where no water vapor is present. It absorbs only in two narrow bands; at 4.5 and 15 microns. Since H2O has already absorbed in these bands, CO2 can't contribute.
---Jerry on 6/19/07


Steven: As for the ozone hole: We can't say for sure but what, as is the case with global temperature cycles, it may be just another natural phenomenon. Besides, I thought that the government's removal of cloroflurocarbons from our aerosol cans and car air conditioners was supposed to fix the problem. Since that didn't work, what makes you think that anything man can do will affect GW?
---Jerry on 6/19/07


Man-made global warming hysteria is one of the biggest scams going. The Earth goes through natural warming and cooling cycles over centuries. Melting glaciers are revealing centuries-old mining and agricultural activities which were going on before the planet cooled. There is a reason Greenland was so named.
---ralph7477 on 6/19/07


Greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and a few others. Water vapor takes up about 95% of the atmosphere including clouds. CO2 15%, 4% caused by man. The oceans cover three fourths of the surface, the earth is heating up and, therefore, more vapor in the air? Man have always survived cataclysmic eventsand this one is no different - unless, of course, it's part of the tribulation period. Pray to God that you are worthy for Him to protect you.

Greenhouse gases are responsible for global warming. Sulphur and other deadly toxins are released into the atmosphere, creating a shield holding in the heat. The ozone layer or our oxygen already has large holes due to decimation of forests so oxygen cannot be produced. Fact. Temperatures have risen 10 degrees in most countries, severe storms are the norm. Tornados, earthquakes, floods in areas not known for them. Man is killing the planet through greed and selfishness, no one else.

We have more news of 'dangerous weather'... What happens in the future is not ours to decide, but if we beleive it to be dangerous, we should do something (as in Paul's comment about eating meat). I try to avoid doing things that might make it worse (if it is happenning) butI would not argue with someone who disagrees.

I like your answer Faye: "I will say this about "global warming"

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
AMEN!!!
---Christina on 6/17/07


Global warming may be a major factor in the horrific events of the tribulation period. If this is true, then it is most likely inevitable. As some have mentioned before there are much more serious issues. If the world is going to end then it is going to end. Stopping global warming won't change that.
---Matthew on 6/17/07

The prophesies concerning the end times does not say who is at fault. The problems could be caused by God, man, or nature. Even earthquakes can be caused by man. As Christians, we are only to be aware of these happenings. They are the signs and wonders as spoken by Jesus, apostles and the prophets. Do not fear for the things that are happening in the world. As a person who is walking in the light of God know and are confident that if they die they know where they are going when Jesus returns.
---Steveng on 6/17/07


James is on the right track. GW is nothing more than a religio-political ploy to grow the power of government. Do you realize that all this "the sky is falling" hype is over a 0.6 degree temperature change over a 100 year period, made with a 1.5 degree measurement accuracy? No "real" scientist would call that statistically relevant. The infrared absorption spectrum of CO2 clearly rules out its significance as a greenhouse gas. Al Gore is a lying politician. That's his job.

Global warming is nothing to be compared to the heat this world will feel if it doesn't set it's focus on Jesus and keep it there.

I agree with James on this point. Why do they call some areas "one hundred year flood plains?" They undoubtedly know that the earth cycles, so why are they trying to control through fear of destruction. God created the earth to sustain itself.

Helen, the lack of rain in Australia at this time is primarily due to the El Nino weather pattern cycle which is particularly strong this year. This El Nino cycle in the Pacific has been going on for centuries. I welcome the El Nino because it keeps the snow away from my area and we have had a very pleasant warm winter so far. Warm winter weather saves lives and conserves heating fuel. Warm weather is good.

Joe; What is the 'protective canopy' that protected man? This is something I missed in scripture. As to warming, the evidence is becoming stronger, even the republicans are admiting it. It is true that during interglacal periods there has been much warming-but mans affect on this climate is clear.

There was a period of global cooling that likely started reducing the lifecycles of mankind. In one case, I believe it was initially decreased by 33%. You might say Noah's sons suffered the most, and several centuries later, humanity suffered the most loss, in terms of life expectancy. What if global warming was a precursor to restoring the protective canopy the earliest part of humanity benefitted from?
