Global warming is in the news today, I guess because Al Gore’s new movie, about the horrors of global warming, opens today. Glenn Beck made a good point on the radio today. He said that if there are fossils of palm trees in Antarctica [and there are], that is your first clue that the earth changes on its own. They have not found any fossils of the combustion engine with those palm tree fossils in Antarctica, so how did man cause the last global warming?
I have blogged before about how warm winters were common in centuries past long before the combustion engine was invented. Remember back in the 70s the doomsday prediction was that global warming was going to cause a new ice age? That was why Earth Day was begun. It has only been thirty years, but today the doomsday prediction is the opposite: the earth is turning into a desert. When that doesn’t happen in thirty years, I wonder if they will go back to the ice age theory. A good website for balanced science and facts — not hysteria — on global warming is globalwarming.org.
Of course, those of us who believe ancient history as it has been revealed and recorded in Genesis, know that the climate was universally temperate or tropical in the beginning, then all the living things on the earth were destroyed by a global flood (which laid down fossils in sedimentary rock layers all over the earth), after which seasons began. The global flood triggered an ice age for some centuries, and then we had warming for some centuries while the climate stablized, and the climate has been cyclical ever since.
05/27 Update: Junk Science reports on the so-called global warming “skeptic” that announced his conversion (B) in the New York Times Op-Ed pages this week, just in time to promote the new Al Gore movie (imagine that); Business and Media Institute reports on the reporting about climate change, and sure enough, showcase the flip flops I mentioned that I remember from ice age to desertification; and Opinion Editorials uses research to debunk the alarmism.
