How Worried Should We Be About Global Climate Change?

by on

According to recent reports, humans have been pinpointed as the “dominant cause” of global warming. Now, this is an issue that many people disagree about. Mike Oard has written that there are plenty of natural causes of climate change, and that we really aren’t sure how much has been caused by man. Ultimately, however, we know that climate is rooted in the global Flood of Noah’s day.

Today, our lead article, by Dr. Alan White, is titled “Should We Be Concerned about Climate Change?” Dr. White, who has a PhD in organic chemistry from Harvard University, helps readers to understand climate change and what the Christian’s response should be to it.

I’ve included the first couple of paragraphs below.

There is good evidence that global temperatures have been slowly climbing for the past four centuries and were slowly declining for many centuries prior to that. But are these temperature changes a serious threat to our way of life or are they just a part of normal variation to which we can readily adjust? Sadly, our lives are going to be affected whether global warming is a real threat or not. Global warming has been blamed for almost every ill in our society. In his State of the Union speech in 2013, President Obama said this:
It’s true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is, the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15. Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, floods—all are now more frequent and more intense. We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science—and act before it’s too late.
I urge you to read the rest of this excellent article, taken from our most recent publication The New Answers Book 4.  And I encourage you to order your copy of The New Answers Book 4 today—it’s part of the worldwide bestselling apologetics series of New Answers Books.

An Incredible Journey

One of yesterday’s main articles on the AiG website reported on a man’s remarkable 1,800-mile walk from the bottom of Grand Canyon to our Creation Museum. One of his goals is to benefit AiG’s future Ark Encounter and two other outreaches.  Read the article to find out what this 66-year-old man walking on a new knee is about to accomplish tomorrow morning, to God’s glory and to highlight the Ark project.
