Position On Global Warming
What position do you take in the Global Warming debate? Is our current climate change occurring because of Man's activities, or is it just one of a series of climate changes over the ages?

There are some environmental changes worth noting and correcting, if possible. But what many Christians object to is the world-wide scare about the fate of the planet. Even grade-school kids are sometimes awake nights, fearful about the dire effects of "global warming" they've been taught in school!
Does devotion to a "cause" trump sensitivity to the needs of Children?!!
What their Christian parents fear is an attempt to unite countries under the banner of "environmentalism" to the end of forming a one-world government (which many see as fulfilled prophesy for rule of Anti-Christ). Fear is a powerful agent, sometimes used by governments, to control both individuals and groups.

There is some science to supply both sides of the argument.
Liberals (tree huggers) believe the sky is falling in while conservatives will deny even obvious climate trends because it doesn't fit their ideology. Both groups are pathetic.
Lastly the Glenn Beck wing nut types argue as if they could sleep in their garage with the car runnning because nothing put into the air makes any difference.
Christians on the other hand know God is responsible for sustaining his planet as part of his master plan until his SON returns. We are to be stewards of nature not worshippers of nature.

In the mix with other things, I consider how they say that space shuttle flights and certain aerosol chemicals have destroyed ozone that was filtering out sun rays. So, now we have more exposure to sun rays, because of spray materials and shuttles??? To me, this is "like" to how there is NO atmosphere on the moon, so that there can be extreme temperature differences between nearby dark and lit surfaces. Like this, I think maybe our less filtered atmosphere can result in dark areas being much more cool than nearby much warmer areas . . . so that there is rushing of such cooler air in under much warmer air, causing more instability than we used to have with atmosphere that buffered us more from the sun's rays.

My Christian friends tell me that Global Warming is a socialist conspiracy theory. As for my view, it's just something that's happening. :-)

Haz7-- No, I'm an American. But I've visited Brisbane with some Aussie friends. Beautiful city!

I guess one could call it global warming. We are still melting from the only ice age, about 4,000 years ago.

I see you referred to an Australian scientist and the government's push to impose extra taxes on us under the pretense of fighting global warming.
Are you an Australian?
If so, "Hi" from Brisbane. If not, "Hi" anyway.

According to Professor Ian Plimer, the Australian geologist.
The volcanic eruption in Iceland,, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED
EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control
CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out
this crud at any given time.
Yet we continue to campaign against that "pollutant", carbon dioxide... It's only that vital chemical compound that every plant
requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans
and all animal life.
Just remember that your government has tried to impose a whopping
carbon tax on you on the basis on the basis of "human-caused" climate change.

I agree with Cluny.
The cycles of climate changes over the centuries is the primary issue.
According to one scientist I saw global warming was even worse about 500 years ago before man developed the means to create the pollution we put out now.

GLOBAL WARMING!! What a joke!! When I was in school we were taught we were headed for another ice age, now it's global warming. They have no proof of earth getting warmer, they now call it climate change.
This is a way for the few to control the masses. Make you buy electric cars to save the planet. So we are to give up oil for coal? There is more pollution associated with electric cars than gas cars.
Plants exposed to CO2 grow bigger and produce more food. Seems that would be something we want with millions starving in the world.

I think since God knows the future, He knew exactly what we would do to this planet and he built it to withstand the abuse.
As far as science goes.... noone was around before the last "ice age" so how they can say that global warming just isnt a phase that the earth goes thru as some form of cleansing itself?

couldn't it be a combination?
---aka on 3/5/11|
everyone should realize that with nearly 7 billion people,and especially with several hundred years of the industrial age,and coal still being burned in nearly all of china,and most of russia,and a never ending gambit of other affects caused by man,that this planet is gonna rebel.the earths resources are finite,and eventually we will probably move out and thrash another place like we are doing to this one.

At the present time, I tend to go with the latter.
There is global warming on Mars, too--yet there are no humans or (as far as we can tell) other living beings to blame it on.

Alan, It's my contention that global warming is a natural trend in our earth cycles governed by sun flares and "El Nino,El Nina" in the Pacific ocean.
Carbon dioxide is heavier than air, but it does pollute!
People have gone overboard on this "green" stuff, like "earth hour" etc..

i think it is just another one of Gods signs to show us he is returning soon, as is also hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, many that are asleep don't care, same as what is happening in our government, i hope and pray all Christians wake up and began to pray for our nation as a whole instead of focusing on what their own selfish needs are.

I believe in it, but don't know exactly what is causing it. It could be a sign of the times, the end times. I really don't know but I believe it's happening. If our summers here on the East Coast of Pennsylvania get any hotter, we will reach the 100 degree mark and that's wayyyy too hot for this area.
