Time:

  • The image of Earth as organism—famously dubbed Gaia by environmentalist James Lovelock—has probably been overworked, but that’s not to say the planet can't behave like a living thing, and these days, it's a living thing fighting a fever.

“Earth has a fever!”

Al Gore to the United States Senate

March 21, 2007

2 PETER 3:10

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

global warming is al gore right
GLOBAL WARMING?IS AL GORE RIGHT?

If we take the Bible literally, earth will get so hot that it will all burn up,

BUT,

that is at the very least 1007 years from today [more later]!

So Al Gore is a bit right, but his timing is more than 1000 years off, and it will not be a gradual process, IT WILL BE A FLASH.

slide6

Al Gore assumes a poorly designed earth which responds to changes by making them worse; when there is much true science that supports the idea that earth has many built in corrective responses, especially in relationship to our sun and seas, which no effort of man can alter or improve.

October 14, 2007
  • ONE of the world's foremost meteorologists has called the theory that helped Al Gore share the Nobel Peace Prize "ridiculous" and the product of "people who don't understand how the atmosphere works“. 
  • Dr William Gray, a pioneer in the science of seasonal hurricane forecasts told a packed lecture hall at the University of North Carolina that humans were not responsible for the warming of the earth. 
october 14 20071
October 14, 2007
  • Dr. Gray’s comments came on the same day that the Nobel committee honored Mr. Gore for his work in advertising and promoting the hypothesis that there is a link between human activity and global warming. 
  • "We're brainwashing our children," said Dr Gray, 78, a long-time professor at Colorado State University.
  • "They're going to the Gore movie [An Inconvenient Truth] and being fed all this. It's ridiculous."
october 14 20072
October 14, 2007
  • "The human impact on the atmosphere is simply too small to have a major effect on global temperatures,” Dr. Gray said. 
  • He said his beliefs had made him an outsider in popular science.
  • "It bothers me that my fellow scientists are not speaking out against something they know is wrong," he said. "But they also know that they'd never get any grants if they spoke out. I don't care about grants."
slide10

August 2007

  • “You wouldn’t know it from Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, but there are many upsides to global warming:…” says Dr. Fred Singer, Professor Emeritus of Environmental Studies, University of Virginia, (Imprimis, Aug. 2007, p.1). Also: Distinguished research professor at George Mason University, president of the Science and Environmental Policy Project; Ph.D. in Physics from Princeton University; founding dean of the School of Environmental and Planetary Sciences at University of Miami; founding director of the U.S. National Weather Satellite Service; past vice-chairman of the U.S. National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmosphere.
slide11

Dr. Fred Singer is one of the most qualified environmental scientists in the world, and he is not at all concerned with the present liberal and celebrity faddishness that we are about to be destroyed by human-generated global warming.

  • Dr. Singer says: “In the past few years there has been increasing concern about global climate change on the part of the media, politicians, and the public. It has been stimulated by the idea that human activities may influence global climate adversely and
slide12

that therefore corrective action is required on the part of governments. Recent evidence suggests that this concern is misplaced. Human activities are not influencing the global climate in perceptible ways. Climate will continue to change, as it always has in the past, warming and cooling on different time scales and for different reasons, regardless of human action. I would also argue that—should it occur—a modest warming would be on the whole beneficial.

  • WHAT….?
fred singer bs ohio state ms phd princeton continues
FRED SINGER BS (Ohio State), MS, PhD (Princeton) continues:
  • “This is not to say that we don’t face a serious problem. But the problem is political [Is Al Gore a lifetime politician or a credentialed PhD scientist?].
  • Because of the mistaken idea that governments can and must do something about climate, pressures are building that have the potential of distorting energy policies in a way that will severely damage national economies, decrease standards of living, and increase poverty. This misdirection of resources will adversely affect human health and welfare in
slide14

in industrialized nations, and even more in developing nations. Thus it could well lead to increased social tensions within nations and conflict between them.

If not for this economic and political damage, one might consider the present concern about climate change nothing more than just another environmentalist fad, like the Alar apple scare or the global cooling fears of the 1970s. Given that so much is at stake, however, it is essential that people better understand the issue. Dr. Fred Singer, “Global Warming: Man-Made or Natural” Imprimis Volume 36 Number 8, August 2007, p. 1

http www hillsdale edu news imprimis asp
http://www.hillsdale.edu/news/imprimis.asp
  • “But in seeking to understand recent warming, we also have to consider the natural factors that have regularly warmed the climate prior to the industrial revolution and, indeed, prior to any human presence on the earth. After all, the geological record shows a persistent 1,500-year cycle of warming and cooling extending back at least one million years” (Dr. Fred Singer) [The 1500 year cycles are evident—but only for about 6000 years: depending on your worldview.]
slide16

Dr.Timothy Patterson is professor and director of the Ottawa-CarletonGeoscience Centre, Department of Earth Sciences, Carleton University

  • The mud at the bottom of B.C. fjords reveals that solar output drives climate change - and that we should prepare now for dangerous global cooling
  • R. TIMOTHY PATTERSON, Financial Post
  • Published: Wednesday, June 20, 2007
dr patterson continues
Dr. Patterson continues:
  • In some fields the science is indeed "settled." For example, plate tectonics, once highly controversial, is now so well-established that we rarely see papers on the subject at all. But the science of global climate change is still in its infancy, with many thousands of papers published every year.
slide18

In a 2003 poll conducted by German environmental researchers Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, two-thirds of more than 530 climate scientists from 27 countries surveyed did not believe that "the current state of scientific knowledge is developed well enough to allow for a reasonable assessment of the effects of greenhouse gases." About half of those polled stated that the science of climate change was not sufficiently settled to pass the issue over to policymakers at all.

slide19

“Solar scientists predict that, by 2020, the sun will be starting into its weakest Schwabe solar cycle of the past two centuries, likely leading to unusually cool conditions on Earth.”

R. Timothy Patterson, Ph.D.

slide20

“Beginning to plan for adaptation to such a cool period, one which may continue well beyond one 11-year cycle, as did the Little Ice Age, should be a priority for governments. It is global cooling, not warming, that is the major climate threat to the world, especially Canada. As a country at the northern limit to agriculture in the world, it would take very little cooling to destroy much of our food crops, while a warming would only require that we adopt farming techniques practiced to the south of us.”

r timothy patterson concludes
R. Timothy Patterson concludes:
  • “Meantime, we need to continue research into this, the most complex field of science ever tackled, and immediately halt wasted expenditures on the King Canute-like task of "stopping climate change."
slide22

Dr. Tim Patterson is Professor of Geology at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He received both a B.Sc. in Biology (1980) and a B.A. in Geology (1983) from Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S. and a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1986. After brief stints at the University of Southern California and University of California at Berkeley he joined Carleton University in 1988 as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Full Professor in 1999.

  • He is Canadian leader of the International Geological Correlation Program Project IGCP 495 "Quaternary Land-Ocean interactions" and is Principal Investigator of a Canadian Foundation For Climate and Atmospheric Sciences project studying high-resolution Holocene climate records from anoxic fjords and coast lakes in British Columbia.

  • “The endless hysteria and alarmism over alleged global warming has increasingly become a national and international nuisance and loses credibility with every passing day. The entire myth has little to do with science and much to do with politics.”

National Geographic November 1976“What’s happening to our climate?” p.581
  • “From 1880 to about 1940 the world—particularly the Northern Hemisphere—went through a period of significant warming….but since about 1940, there has been a distinct drop in average global temperature. It’s fallen about ½ a degree Fahrenheit—even more in high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere.”
  • Dr. J. Murray Mitchell, Jr., National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
slide25

“During the last 20 to 30 years, world temperature has fallen, irregularly at first but more sharply over the last decade.”

  • U.S. National Science Board, 1974, as quoted in National Geographic Nov. 1976, p. 581.
slide26

“England’s annual growing season shrank by 9 or10 days between 1950 and 1966, Hubert Lamb has noted (Britain’s University of East Anglia). In the northern tier of the U.S. Midwest, summer frosts again occasionally damage crops.

  • Sea Ice has again returned to Iceland’s coast after more than 40 years of virtual absence. Glaciers in Alaska and Scandinavia have slowed their recession; some in Switzerland have begun advancing again. National Geographic, p. 281.

  • The climates of the earth have always been changing, and they will doubtless continue to do so in the future. How large these future changes will be, and where and how rapidly they will occur we do not know.
the age april 7 2003 research casts doubt on global warming
The Age, April 7, 2003“Research casts doubt on global warming”
  • “Claims that man-made pollution has caused unprecedented warming have been undermined by research that shows the earth was warmer in the Middle Ages” (800-1300 A.D.)
  • “The review by a Harvard University team…proves that the world had a medieval warm period between the 9th and 14th centuries with world temperatures significantly higher than today.”
slide29

The hottest temperatures recorded in the U.S.A. were in the 1930’s peaking in 1934 and were hotter than the “global warming mantra” of Gore and the “Greens” that 1998 and following have been the hottest on record.

a case in point
A CASE IN POINT:
  • Al Gore likes to point out that the Upsala glacier of Patagonia is retreating.
  • But “Just fifty kilometers away from Upsala is Moreno, which is growing, and thereby calving. Claims of Moreno’s retreat are typically danced around without brazenly lying about it “melting,” and are pure fabrication and illustrative of the lengths to which environmentalists go to dishonestly frighten people.” Christopher Horner, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism, D.C.:Regenery Pubs., 2007, P. 223.
slide32

Horner continues: Other much larger glaciers nearby are advancing without the pleasure of angst-ridden eco-tourists and pencil-gnawing journalists. In fact, “While in the same region in Patagonia, either in the Argentinean or Chilean sides, there are small glaciers on retreat, there are other medium sized glaciers in stable condition, and really big glaciers growing at record speed and volume.” [http://mitosyfraudes.8k.com/Ingles3/UpsalaEng.html.]

  • For example, South America’s largest glacier, Pio XI, is growing very quickly. The greens and media just missed it, that’s all, another case of not seeing the forest for being busy hugging trees. (Horner, p. 224)
slide33

“Everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it.”

Mark Twain, in what used to be a joke and now passes for policy analysis.

Does earth have a history of environmental and ecological disasters?

How did earth begin?

According the Bible, the God of the Bible created everything in six days and it was “very good.” (Genesis 1:31)

It was also a warm climate with mild seasons (Adam and Eve were both naked in the Garden of Eden=warm and no clothing needed).

(Genesis 2:25)

on this early earth
ON THIS EARLY EARTH:
  • It did not rain, “…for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth,… 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.” (Genesis 2:5-6)
  • Man and animal ate vegetation (Genesis 1:29, 30).
  • There were mild seasons (Genesis 1:14)
  • There was probably one land mass with 4 rivers flowing out of the one river (Genesis 2:10-15).
  • The earth was pole to pole greenhouse warm (giant trees and palm tree fossils in Alaska, broad leaf ferns in the Antarctica, warm temp animals frozen solid in New Siberian Islands, but today willows 1”).
the first environmental disaster
THE FIRST ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER
  • Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit (The Fall) and the earth and everything in it was cursed.
  • …cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. Gen. 3:17b-19
1 st ecological disaster the fall 2 nd eco disaster the global flood
1st Ecological disaster = The Fall2nd Eco disaster = The Global Flood
  • 11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
  • 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth (Gen. 6:11-13).
  • 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights (Gen. 7:12). THE FIRST RAIN!
the first mighty wind
THE FIRST MIGHTY WIND
  • 1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged; 2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; 3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated (Genesis 8:1-3).
the first mention of cold winter
THE FIRST MENTION OF COLD WINTER
  • 22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease (Genesis 8:21-22).
  • No longer mild seasons, but heat and cold =
  • FIRST RECORDED GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE
  • No longer harvest any time all year long.
  • Earth now a harsher place to live
  • After the Flood: meat eating now approved by God for man and animals (see Genesis 9:1-5).
the first mention of ice and snow
THE FIRST MENTION OF ICE AND SNOW
  • 14 To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty. 15 My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away; 16 Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snowis hid: 17 What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place. Job 6:14-17
slide42

Ice and snow and hail and frost had a beginning after the flood(Job 38:29) “29Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?”

  • Ice and snow are kept in “storehouses” which are probably the polar ice caps (Job 38:22) “22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail?” (treasures, treasuries, storehouses)
1 st recorded major drought an environmental disaster
1ST RECORDED MAJOR DROUGHTAn Environmental Disaster
  • 10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land (Genesis 12:10).
  • The drought was so intense and prolonged that Abraham was forced to move his family to Egypt to find food and water.
slide44

Earlier I mentioned that at least 1007 years are left to earth history before God burns it all up. How can such a statement be made?

starting today more than 1000 years remain in earth history
Starting today more than 1000 years remain in earth history!
  • The Premillennial Escatological theological position believes that the Creator Himself, the Lord Jesus Christ, (see in the Bible John 1; Colossians 1; Hebrews 1) will leave His throne in heaven to come to rule on earth from Jerusalem in the last days before He destroys earth and all it contains by fire. While He reigns the curse will be removed and the earth will bring forth its increase as not seen since the days of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
revelation 20 1 8
REVELATION 20:1-8
  • 1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
slide47

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. REVELATION 20:1-8

slide48

During this unique 1000 year reign of Creator Jesus (John 1; Colossians 1; Hebrews 1) Who alone is the Messiah and Savior of mankind (Isaiah 53; Psalm 22; John 3; Romans 3:23-24, 6:23, 5:8; 10:9-13; 1 John 5:10-13; Ephesians 2:8-10), the curse caused by the sin of Adam which brought disease, decay and death to planet earth (Romans 5:12, 1 Corinthians 15:20-22) will be removed (Acts 3:18-21). The fear between man and beast initiated in Genesis 9:1-5 will be removed and life-spans greatly increased for man and beast.

  • Comment: The so-called naysayers—more accurately, non-alarmists—are a hardy breed, and their ranks include many respected scientists, several dozen of which recently argued in a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper that, “If, back in the mid-1990s, we knew what we know today about climate, Kyoto would almost certainly not exist, because we would have concluded it was not necessary.”
slide60

Guess who the environmentalists exempted from Kyoto? Two most environmentally unfriendly nations in the world: China and India. So this “warming” crowd is not really about warming at all. They want to ham-string and destroy western Christian civilization.

“Scientists have an independent obligation to respect and present the truth as they see it.”

  • Professor Bob Carter, Marine Geophysical Laboratory, James Cook University, Australia
christopher horner the politically incorrect guide to global warming
Christopher Horner, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming

“Naturalism’s modern successor, today’s environmentalism bordering on eco-theism, asserts that the only way to preserve nature is through state control of resources and liberties. By this thinking, the falling Iron Curtain should have revealed a green Eden, but we know that to be far from the case….

horner continues
Horner continues:

Today’s “environmentalist” comes in many varieties, from ill-shaven undergrads to wealthy elites, with myriad motivators driving this activism. The modern environmentalist’s motivation is generally not a love of biological diversity or horticulture, not a desire to expand animal habitats and so on—though these advocates certainly do exist, in obscurity.

Instead, today’s environmentalist is generally “anti-” something, and that something is typically related to growth: economic growth, population growth,

slide64

physical development, or simply the individual property rights necessary for growth. Cute panda logos and other kitsch aside, outside of the rare breeds arguing in favor of one cause or another, today’s environmentalist is removed in scope and degree from his naturalist ancestors.” (Christopher Horner p. 22)

slide65

Global warming is a political strategy of Socialists.

  • Strategy: Create a life-threatening global crisis such as global warming.
  • Advertise the crisis repeatedly. (Gore in schools,etc.)
  • Gain a critical mass of people. (using media)
  • Pass laws that restrict industry and freedom.
  • Increase central government control and taxes.
  • Confiscate private property
  • Abolish the free-market economic system.
  • Establish a two class civilization:
  • The Elites
      • And everyone else (slaves with no rights?).
slide66

PREDICTION:

  • Governments will not solve global warming,
  • But they will find a way to tax it,
  • And they will use it to increase their power base.

  • Top 10 Junk Science Moments for 2006

1 - Some Real Inconvenient Truth. Al Gore whipped the world into a global warming frenzy with his doomsday documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

3 - What Hurricane Season? The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s prediction for the 2006 hurricane season was about as wrong as wrong can be.

Global warming alarmism is the bread and butter of a host of special interests. The perception that global warming is something to be “very worried” about is the sine qua non of billions of dollars in annual government contracts to researchers and universities, and millions of dollars in annual direct mail contributions to eco-activist groups. Insurance companies like Swiss Re profit from spreading alarm, because it gives them a convenient pretext to raise the premiums they charge to cover weather-related damages. “News” magazines like Time profit from spreading alarm, because scary stories and scarier covers sell copy.

an inconvenient truth
AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH:
  • “Admittedly the weather is warming; some scientists tell us it has increased 0.7 or 0.8 degrees during the last one hundred years, hardly enough to raise the ocean levels one inch worldwide—a far cry from the outrageously dogmatic twenty inches Al Gore is predicting in his scientifically flawed movie that is being shown all over America to our innocent school children. The reason is simple: the public schools are controlled by leftists— “worldly wisdom” teachers with an agenda.” Tim LeHaye
for your information march 21 07 al gore testified before the us senate
FOR YOUR INFORMATION: March 21,’07Al Gore testified before the US Senate
  • Under the normal rules, a witness's statement before a congressional committee is limited to 15 minutes, and a written version must be submitted at least 48 hours before the hearing. Gore demanded 30 minutes and was given it, requested permission to submit his written testimony only 24 hours before the hearing and was granted it, and then failed to meet that deadline. His written testimony did not reach the Democrat staff members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee until about 1 a.m. Wednesday, just 9 hours before the hearing--and Republican staff did not receive their copies until 7 a.m., six hours later than the Democrats and just 3 hours before the hearing. Committee members and their staffs normally review written statements in advance in order to prepare for questioning.
slide79

Media reports showcased Gore's testimony. Citizens who depended on the media would have had a difficult time detecting a very inconvenient truth for Gore: His oral testimony, though filled with claims of impending catastrophe and recommendations for responses the benefits of which he boasted would outweigh the costs, was woefully short on specific details of scientific and economic data, documentation, and argumentation. “His written testimony (http://energycommerce.house.gov/cmte_mtgs/110-eaq-hrg.032107.Gore-testimony.pdf), a mere three pages, reads, to put it bluntly, as if written by a precocious sixth-grade student no more familiar with the issue than if he'd read a few hundred headlines in the popular media.” E. Calvin Beisner

slide80

In contrast, Dr. Lomborg's written testimony (http://energycommerce.house.gov/cmte_mtgs/110-eaq-hrg.032107.Lomborg-testimony.pdf) is a masterpiece of well-informed scholarship. Twenty-three pages long, including four pages of references to technical sources, it is filled with hard data, documentation to authoritative sources, and clear and cogent argumentation. Lomborg's testimony explicitly and convincingly proves many of Gore's most important and frightening claims to be false and indeed irresponsible. His written testimony reads, to put it bluntly, as if written by a Ph.D.'d specialist in the field (which he is) who diligently dug beneath headlines to solid information.

slide81

While we at the Interfaith Stewardship Alliance [E. Calvin Beisner] do not agree that current warming is mostly manmade (for reasons, see the "Call to Truth," at http://www.interfaithstewardship.org/pdf/CalltoTruth.pdf, and "Important Developments on Global Warming in 2006," at http://www.interfaithstewardship.org/pdf/GlobalWarmingSummary2006.pdf), we wholeheartedly agree that taking Gore's advice will cost millions of lives.

It will force the world's poorest people to continue for decades or generations using wood and dried dung as their primary heating and cooking fuels, causing indoor air pollution that kills nearly 2 million every year. It will slow their economic development and hence their ability to leave behind the contaminated drinking water and untreated sewage that kill another 2 million or more every year. It will delay their ability to afford measures to overcome hunger, malnutrition, and infectious diseases, together costing more millions of lives each year.

The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change will re-ignite the heated debate about the causes of global warming. In their controversial new book, Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark and British science writer Nigel Calder affirm that it’s not manmade carbon dioxide that’s at fault for global warming, but natural forces at work in the universe.  It’s a radical departure from prevailing popular belief, and a theory that Svensmark and Calder argue for eloquently and persuasively in this new landmark book.

  • A Compelling Theory Backed by Intensive Research

Wayne Grudem says Gore’s environmental push runs contrary to what the Bible says about man’s relationship to creation -– he is told to rule over it in Genesis 1:28 -– as well as what the Bible says about the wisdom of God in Proverbs 3:19-20: “19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. 20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.” “I find it highly doubtful that the Lord would set the earth up in such a way that we would destroy it by obeying His command,” Grudem said. “And yet, that’s exactly what the alarmists would have us think.” 

slide86

Our weather super-cycles are quite normal and are in reality due to cyclical changes in tilt of the earth's rotational axis and path of revolution around the sun (do a Google search on "Milankovitch cycles").  We are not going to move the earth's axis or rotational path by changing to a different type of light bulb.  The notion that we can is nothing more than Satan's idea "I will be like the most high" (Isa 14:14).

So the real issue in the global warming battle is—who is in control!

  • Is the God of all creation in control or is man in control?
  • Do we worship “Goddess Mother Earth” (The Gaia Principle-Hypothesis) or do we worship God Almighty of the Bible?
slide88

It appears that Al Gore, the leading evangelist of the global warming propaganda machine worships “mother earth.”

  • He says (Earth in the Balance, p. 260): “Europe and much of the world was based on the worship of a single earth goddess, who was assumed to be the fount of all life….The last vestige of organized goddess worship was eliminated by Christianity….”
  • Christians are the bad guys (see p. 260-264)

2 PETER 3:5-7

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished [flood of Noah’s day, Genesis 6-8]: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

2 peter 3 101
2 PETER 3:10

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

1 thessalonians 5 1 4
1 THESSALONIANS 5:1-4
  • 1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
slide92

Moreover, the "global warming" over which the liberals are so terrified are normal weather super-cycles:  Gen 8:21, 22 - As long as the earth remains, God will not curse the world any more for man's sake, nor destroy all living things (i.e., not only by flood, but by any means).  Normal cycles (seedtime & harvest, summer & winter, HEAT and COLD) will continue as long as the earth exists.

Deeper ice is pressed into finer layers so 4400 years to accumulate the ice at the poles is no problem! Note - The planes do not sink in the ice due to pressure on the ice. Planes are nose heavy and would not be horizontal if they sank.

1) Does God Himself ever bring changes to the weather?  Yes, and often in judgment: 10 “Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit. 11 And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn,…” Haggai 1:10-11

2) Is the world today so innocent that it does not deserve a bit of drought?  Will man's actions (less CO2 & different light bulbs) change God's judgment on humankind’s rebellion against Him?  (Job 40:7, 8)

“Wilt thou also disannul My judgment? wilt thou condemn Me, that thou mayest be righteous?”

  • “[Y]ou will see why these same educated leftists have so overwhelmingly accepted Al Gore’s grossly unscientific and outrageous claims of a coming world catastrophe due to global warming. They accept as facts the doomsday prognostications of the left leaning “scientists” or “scholars” what the weather will be 30-50 years from now while these same experts can’t be relied on more than a 50/50 chance to be right in predicting the weather fifteen days from now.”

LeHaye continues:
  • We note that they don’t offer to debate competent scientists who refute Gore’s science and faulty reasoning; they just shout louder. That is their style. They can’t knowledgably debate the issues nor will they allow an opposing side to present the truth as we see it; they ridicule those who disagree and demonstrate against them in the name of “free speech,” but they forbid opposing views a fair hearing

One worldviewthat is dominant in radical environmentalist and global warming circles is Postmodernism.

Postmodernists are evolutionists who worship the creature rather than the Creator (Romans 1:25).

The university campuses of the world are full of postmodernist professors.

postmodernists claim
POSTMODERNISTS CLAIM:
  • There are no “truths” which apply to all of us.
  • There are no absolute moral standards.
  • There are no absolute ethical concerns.
  • There is no God.
  • There are personal opinions.
  • There are personal perspectives.
  • See the writings of Nietzsche, Derrida, Lyotard, Ricouer, Foucault, Rorty, Baudrillard, etc.
  • Most Postmodernist thinkers are/were disillusioned Marxists.
marxists and postmodernists are atheists
MARXISTS AND POSTMODERNISTS ARE ATHEISTS.
  • “Atheism is the theological belief that there is no God, no supernatural Creator, no Divine moral law giver, and no ultimate Judge of man’s actions. It is the theological backbone of not only Secular Humanism and Marxism, but it is also the predominant theological view of classical Postmodernism” (David Noebel, Understanding the Times, p. 77).

POSTMODERNIST RICHARD RORTY:

“I might have written an account of how even atheists like myself are impressed, improved and morally instructed by reading Pilgrim’s Progress.”

ROMANS 1:19-22

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, …

“We mentioned earlier how the dominant “straight” society has apparently not recognized the strength and pervasiveness of the new consciousness culture. ..so far a polarization between the old culture [Western Christianity] and the new one has been avoided [1982]. If the New Age Movement does become a target of alarmed forces and defenders of the status quo ante, however, it will offer a widely dispersed and decentralized target, very hard to identify and impossible to dissuade or subvert from its life-serving values.”

New Age Postmodernist at the U.N., Donald Keyes, Earth at Omega, p.88

slide134
Disillusioned Marxists became Postmodernists and now gain strength through Multiculturalism and its stepchild, Political Correctness, which is rightly labeled, “Cultural Marxism”.
  • Marx and Lenin taught that, given the chance, European workers would overthrow capitalist governments and replace them with communism.
  • But after the Russian revolution of 1917 the Western European workers did not support the Communist revolution or ideas.
  • Why not?
slide135
Christianity and its moral and ethical absolutes was the roadblock to the expansion of Marxism.
  • This roadblock was noticed by two Marxist theorists in 1919: Italian, Antonio Gramsci and Hungarian, Georg Lukacs.
  • These two men decided that the spread of Communism could only be accomplished if Western Christian culture was destroyed.
  • So Lukacs introduced sex education into the public schools of Hungary,1919, believing that if children knew more about sex their lust for it would overpower their Christian morals!
slide136
So Gramsci and Lukacs laid the groundwork to change communism from economic terms (ownership of private property is evil) into cultural terms. (tolerance, sex ed, drug ed, change, etc.)
  • “Change”=depart from old, intolerant ways.
  • Then in 1923 at Frankfurt University in Germany the Institute for Social Research was established=The Frankfurt School.
  • The Frankfurt School moved to New York City in 1933 when Hitler came to power.
  • Theorists like Wilhelm Reich, Eric Fromm, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, etc.
slide137
The Frankfurt School invented “Critical Theory” which had the goal of demonizing all traditional institutions such as family, fatherhood, patriotism, Bible-believing churches, traditions, etc.
  • The Frankfurt School published Studies in Prejudice which taught that anyone who believes in traditional Western Christian culture is prejudiced, a “racist” or “sexist” or “fascist” or is mentally unstable.
  • Mixing Freud with Marx, they perfected the technique of psychological conditioning—thus, for example, TV shows abortion to be normal behavior.
  • TV shows Christians to be crazy, intolerant, bigoted, judgmental fools.
slide138
Herbert Marcuse, working with Hollywood friends, became a leading “evangelist” of Cultural Marxism (Political Correctness) especially on the university campuses of USA.
  • “In his book Eros and Civilization, he argued that by freeing sex from any restraints, we could elevate the pleasure principle over the reality principle and create a society with no work, only play (Marcuse coined the phrase, “Make love, not war”). Marcuse also argued for what he called “liberating tolerance,” which he defined as tolerance for all ideas coming from the Left and intolerance for any ideas coming from the
slide139
right. In the late 1960’s Marcuse became the chief “guru” of the New Left, and he injected the cultural Marxism of the Frankfurt School into the baby boom generation, to the point where it is now America’s state ideology.
  • The next conservatism should unmask multicul- turalism and Political Correctness and tell the American people what they really are: cultural Marxism. Its goal remains that Lukacs and Gramsci set in 1919: destroying Western culture and the Christian religion. [see: Wm. Lind, “Cultural Marxism” The Schwarz Report, vol. 46, No. 4, p 4. www.schwarzreport.org]
psalm 19 7 9
PSALM 19:7-9
  • The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
  • The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure enlightening the eyes.
  • The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

A single volcano spews more "greenhouse gasses" into the atmosphere than mankind has produced since the industrial revolution.  That level of volcanic pollution, over which man has no control whatsoever, can be compared to the immensity of our sin, inherited from Adam (Isaiah 64:6), which we can by no means reverse or resolve on our own.

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

With this backdrop in mind, just as it is impossible to reverse the pollution produced by a volcano and its impact on any so-called "global warming" by switching to a new type of light bulb, so it is impossible to earn our way into heaven by any works of righteousness which we have done, however many or sincere

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him [Lord Jesus Christ] shall not be ashamed.
