Algore on the Hill


Gore waddled up to Capitol Hill today to try to spread his global warming alarmist propaganda. Never fear, the "scientific consensus" Gore claims for his gloom and doom message just isn't holding up (perhaps he should join Rev. Jesse Jackson's Million Snowman March against global warming as reported in the Onion). The U.N.'s latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which the alarmists have claimed as their gold standard, must be of particular concern to Gore. The report stated the worst case scenario for sea-level change in the next century is 23 inches, a slightly lower than Gore's claims of 20 feet or more in his documentary. Steven Hayward of National Review Online offers further evidence of the growing consensus: Gore is misleading the world on global warming.

Jon-I'd recommend the article on climate care by Cal DeWitt in the April 2007 issue of The Banner. Also see this link:

http://www.christiansandclimate.org/ (statement signed by Gaylen Byker, Calvin's President, and Andy Ryskamp, director of CRWRC)

As well as a statement by the National Associaition of Evangelicals.

My point is that there are many Christians who view caring for the environment a serious part of their calling as believers, and not some conspiracy created and maintained by the liberal media.

Tom, thanks for your comments. I absolutely agree that God calls us to care for the environment. Pollution is bad and I do hope that we continue to improve our alternative energy options. However, I absolutely do not buy into Al Gore's scare tactics. His film is simply propaganda. The science of global warming is far from settled. There are those who want to scare us into thinking the sky is falling in order to advance their environmental and/or socialist agendas. Please check out this link for a succinct but well reasonsed criticism of the global warming hype: http://epw.senate.gov/speechitem.cfm?party=rep&id=263759
