Preaching Out Against ‘Global Warming’ Panic

This Sunday, February 25, I will preach a very unusual sermon. My topic:
global warming.

This may seem a strange, possibly even unnecessary, subject to some. But
I believe the Church must quickly get serious about denouncing the
accelerating effort to promote the alleged catastrophic human-caused
global warming.

This is especially true since some members of the evangelical community
have recently aligned themselves with radical voices within the global
warming movement. I see this as unnecessary and, worse, dangerous.

Now, I’m certainly not a scientist. But if one looks past the superficial
reporting of the mainstream media and examines the many alternative
scientific views on global warming, it is apparent that the earth
frequently experiences warming and cooling trends. It appears to me — and
I have been intently studying this subject — that we are now in a warming

But many world scientists are preaching sermons that adamantly insist
that man is the cause of recent warming trends. They urge that America
sign on to the Kyoto Treaty, which would compel America to self-impose
exorbitant policies for cutting back on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The treaty, which many are urging America to sign, would immediately cost
America an estimated $325 billion, according to Yale University’s William
Nordhaus and Joseph Boyer. That’s a lot of money to spend on halting an
unproven theory.

Meanwhile, Russia, India, China and Third World nations will not be
required to sign on the dotted line.

Jack Langer, journalist and book editor for Regnery Publishing, recently
wrote, “The real motives behind the entire global-warming hysteria are
equally opaque. It surely isn’t science — Timothy Ball, the first
Canadian Ph.D. in climatology, recently called global warming ‘the
greatest deception in the history of science.’ Plenty of scientific
research bears this out, from Bjorn Lomborg’s ‘The Skeptical
Environmentalist’ to the newly released ‘Unstoppable Global Warming Every
1500 Years’ by physicist Fred Singer and economist Dennis Avery.”

The problem is that global warming has become a trendy issue of limousine
liberals and Hollywood elitists, and the media is promoting it as
virtual, if not substantive, fact.

Never mind that in November, for the second consecutive month,
temperatures across the continental U.S. were cooler-than-average,
according to scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration’s National Climatic Data Center. We wouldn’t want facts
like that to get in the way of a global warming political movement, would

The media frequently notes that the Union of Concerned Scientists is
leading the charge to confront the out-of-control global warming advance.
These scientists were recently described by writer Dennis Byrne as the
“inexhaustibly liberal and self-appointed guardians of scientific purity
[who] try to corrupt science for its own ends.”

But in today’s media, the Union is depicted as heroes of a just cause,
tellers of truth in a war against evil American companies who want to
destroy the world.

National Review Editor Rich Lowry recently reported: “Shock tactics
inevitably mean simplifying in an area of unimaginable complexity. No one
knows how to create a reliable model of the planet’s climate, and
inconvenient anomalies muddy the story line of the warming zealots. From
1940 to 1975, the global temperature fell even as CO2 emissions rose.
Since 2001, global temperatures have only gone up a statistically
insignificant 0.03 degrees Celsius. And in recent years, the oceans have
actually gotten cooler.”

In other words, there’s no need to panic.

Further, there’s no need for the Church of Jesus Christ to be wasting its
time gullibly falling for all of this global warming hocus pocus. We need
to give our total focus to the business of reaching this world with the
Gospel of Jesus Christ and stop running down meaningless rabbit trails
that get our focus off of our heavenly purpose.
