Climate Warnings—Are They “Over the Top”?

by on

It seems everything these days is blamed on climate change—and I do mean everything. A recent article from Fox News looked at five recent climate change warnings—including a warning of man-eating tigers, caused by climate change—and various experts weighed in on why these warnings were too over-the-top. But, as Christians, we understand that if you don’t have the right starting point, you won’t come to the right conclusions.

The warnings Fox News mentioned included:

  • not having children due to climate change;
  • twelve years left to live;
  • an increase in tornados;
  • an increase in man-eating tigers;
  • and mass extinctions.

Why the fear-mongering by climate change alarmists? Well, they believe in evolutionary ideas and millions of years. Because they have the wrong starting point, they wrongly interpret the evidence. They see the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica as recording climate data for tens of thousands of years. But those ice sheets formed quickly, during the post-flood ice age, and therefore don’t record tens of thousands of years of climate data.

We know the earth was marred by sin and that the global flood of Noah’s day radically changed the climate, including causing an ice age.

When we start with God’s Word, we know the earth was created to be inhabited by humans. We know God intelligently designed our weather, atmosphere, sun, and everything else that controls and influences climate. But because of the sin and the curse, no system works perfectly anymore. We know the earth was marred by sin and that the global flood of Noah’s day radically changed the climate, including causing an ice age.

Yes, climates change. But is it man-made and is man-made climate change causing severe weather events, man-eating tigers, and mass extinction? Well, only if you have the wrong starting point. Although it is “man-made” in the sense that our sin has caused problems!

Starting with God’s Word, we know:

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease (Genesis 8:22).
