Thanks, in part, to former Vice-president Al Gore’s globe-trotting promotion of his book and subsequent documentary, both titled “An Inconvenient Truth,” global-warming activism has grown. Since President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change the collective groans of global warming activists has been heard.
Gore and his following of Chicken Littles succeeded in championing the idea that greenhouse emissions are a significant, manmade, existential threat to our planet’s climate and to people everywhere, and claim that is supported by scientific observations.
A Canadian teen has taken a pledge not to have children, a family, until her government takes action against climate change. Emma Lim calls her movement “#No Future, No Children.” Emma says, “We’ve read the science.”
Emma is joined by Swedish teen Greta Thunberg who recently testified before the United States Congress. The teenage climate activist said, “This is not political views or my opinions; this is science.” She then castigated Congress saying, “Don’t invite us here telling us how inspiring we are without doing anything.”
Thunberg also spoke to the United Nations rebuking them for their lack of action on climate change repeatedly saying, “How dare you!”
Seattle teenager Jamie Margolin echoed Thunberg’s sentiments when she told Congress, “You’re promising me lies … the reality is my generation has been committed to a planet that is collapsing.”
I think these teenagers have a better understanding of politicians than they do climate change.
I am not aware of a single scientific fact regarding climate change that these teenagers revealed during their temper tantrums before Congress and the United Nations.
Cooling and warming cycles for untold millenium have dominated the history of the earth’s climate. All scientific observation points to the fact we are in a warming cycle. Science has revealed nothing in the way of evidence to show a significant causal link between greenhouse emissions and global warming.
One documentary I saw said that the average global temperature a thousand years ago was warmer than it is today. When it comes to natural catastrophes like earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and yes climate change, these are all natural phenomena we can observe, and track, and to some degree predict, but we are wholly incapable of preventing, because they are not man-made.
The apostle Peter wrote, “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat,” 2 Peter 3:10-12.
Looks like climate change is going to get us in the end, but neither the climate change now nor the one to come is man-made.
