Letter writer says climate change is God’s plan

To the Editor:
For decades the environmental movement has wrongly claimed earth is threatened by the activity and existence of people and said we must pay trillions of dollars to the U.N. and must give up our liberties to “save” the planet. In 1989 the U.N. said by the year 2000, raising oceans could kill millions. President Obama, while president claimed “oceans are rising,” so we need to give more power and taxpayer money to the U.N. However, the Obama’s just moved into their new 15 million dollar oceanfront beach house right on the ocean in Massachusetts.
Environmentalist leftists are now telling students that climate change is going to kill them and everyone they know and then place those terrified kids in front of cameras to beg for their lives. They are calling climate change an existential crisis and using kids for propaganda. Liberal environmentalists want to outlaw air conditioning, which would cause some people to die. Some environmentalists want to have “climate change deniers” banned from YouTube and imprisoned. Environmentalists exaggerate dangers to the environment while prohibiting those that disagree with them from being heard. At a recent Town Hall, Democrats running for president in 2020 demanded that humans change so that (according to their belief) the earth won’t. They all agreed on spending trillions of dollars of taxpayer monies. They wanted to ban straws. Candidates Kamala Harris and Andrew Yang wanted dietary restrictions and to ban meat. Bernie Sanders proposed American taxpayers fund abortion worldwide to combat this so-called, “existential crisis.”
Environmentalists want to lower carbon dioxide, which they consider a pollutant that will cause higher electric bills for everyone and hurt the poor the most. Dr. Richard Lindzen professor at MIT said, “Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.” “There is clear evidence increased atmospheric carbon dioxide is environmentally helpful to food crops and other plants that nourish all life,” Lindzen said. “It is plant food, not poison.” About 10,000 scientists with the highest college degrees agree with him. See www.petitionproject.org. This shows environmentalists are lying when they say all scientists agree with them and the “science is settled.” According to the National Center for Policy Analysis, man-made carbon dioxide amounts to under 4 percent of all carbon dioxide. The truth is there are many variables affecting earth’s climate, the biggest effect coming from the sun. Professor Philip Stott said, “Climate is the most complex, coupled, non-linear, chaotic system known to man.” “Major reductions in carbon emissions are not worth the money,” Stott said. We can’t predict where a hurricane will be one week ahead, nor can we predict or change the climate ten years from now. It’s arrogant for environmentalist to say they know the future climate when climate is one of the most complex systems on earth with thousands of inputs, many of which we don’t understand. It’s really about the U.N. controlling humanity and not controlling the climate!
God created humanity to rule the earth, not the earth, to rule humanity. Some liberal environmentalists show more concern for land, plants and animals than for people. While we could debate how to be good stewards of God’s creation, killing babies to save the environment is a perversion both of God’s gift of life as well as of the earth He created for us. Many have selective compassion and hear and care about the howl of the wolf or squeal of a dolphin but are deaf to the cry of an unborn child. The Bible says, “A righteous man cares for the needs of his animals.” However, Jesus made a distinction between animals and persons. Jesus said, “Are you not much more valuable than they?” The Bible teaches only humans are created in God’s image with a soul, making them the most valuable resource on earth. Christians are more focused on saving souls, not the earth and focused on the Creator (Jesus) more than the creation. While it’s good to pick up litter and take care of God’s creation, it’s of the highest importance to get to know God and obey and care about the Creator. It says in John 17, “This is eternal life, that they might know thee the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent.”
John Coleman, the founder of the weather channel, said while he loves our environment as much as anyone, he disagrees with the United Nations religion of climate change. Coleman said U.N. climate agreements are all about empowering the U.N. and have nothing to do with the climate. Coleman said the former head of the U.N. climate panel declared global warming “is my religion.” Earth/nature worship has gotten into some churches and some books used by churches. The Message “Bible” adds earth reverence as a new requirement to go to heaven in 1 Corinthians 6. The Message inserts the phrase “use and abuse the earth” as a great evil that keeps one from going to heaven. No other Bible includes this. It’s disturbing some T.V. preachers quote from it. Jesus said live by every word that comes from God, not a bad paraphrase like The Message. Use only a word for word translation like the King James. The Message shouldn’t be used by any Christian church because it isn’t trustworthy and puts political correctness over accuracy. Some aren’t happy with “the old-time religion” and use their own translation to make their own kind of religion. If your church uses The Message, move to a church using real Bibles.
God is in control of the climate and uses it to bring judgment. The Bible tells us what climate to expect. The Bible says in Psalm 9:17 “the wicked shall be turned into hell and all nations that forget God.” Christians know exactly when the world/earth will end: when God Himself destroys it and replaces it with a new heaven and a new earth(Revelation 21:1). In the meantime, the only global warming we really need to concern ourselves with is the eternal fire awaiting all who reject God’s gift of eternal life (Revelation 21, Matthew 10 & 25, Mark 9, etc.). Salvation from that truly existential crisis doesn’t require giving up straws, meat, or our descendants(unborn babies). You won’t get eternal life by feeling God in nature or helping the environment, but only through a relationship with Jesus that changes your nature. The Bible says, “What would it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lost his soul?” C.S. Lewis advised: “Aim at heaven and you get earth thrown in, aim at earth and you get neither!”
