Global Warming is mentioned in a Drawbridge Blog, we mean it within
the context of the following:
Earth's temperature is not subject to the activities on the surface
of the globe. In other words, humans can do nothing to make Earth cooler
or warmer. Global temperatures do fluctuate up and down but such changes
are totally within God's hands and mere mortals can do nothing to effect
Earth's temperature one way or the other.
first four words in the Bible are
The Beginning God.
what God did in the beginning, He will continue to do according to His
good pleasure. God created Earth for the benefit of humans. He placed
animal life and plant life here for our sustenance and comfort.
designed humans and animals to breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.
Conversely, plant life breathes in carbon dioxide and exhales oxygen.
This is God's master plan and nothing Al Gore and his kind do can change
it one iota. Divine simpatico.
notion of selling or rationing carbon units is straight out of a con
man's "a sucker is born every minute" play book. In other words, selling
carbon units is nothing but a massive carnival hoax!
who traffic in such drivel should be discredited and turned over to
the justice system as soon as we get a real Attorney General.
recycling, and striving for clean air and water are worthy goals and
have no cause and effect relationship with global warming.
is no doubting the fact that our Sun is the most awesome source of power
in our universe. The Sun has enough latent power to heat/cool every
building on the globe, with enough power left over to power every passenger
and freight conveyance.
However, God is withholding that knowledge from us for the time being.
He may have other uses for the Sun that go beyond human comprehension
in this era.
Meanwhile, we must be content to work with what we have and is within
our practical reach. Of course, all efforts to use current sources of
power must pass the test of cost/benefit analysis.
everything must be driven by marketability and not fanatic ideology.
Converting corn to ethanol is a classic example of failing to pass the
cost/benefit test. It may be costing more fuel to convert corn to fuel
than we gain in added fuel, while driving up food costs because we are
burning so much corn.
more solar panels than we can profitably sell is another example of
failing the cost/benefit test.
The technology doesn't now exist to enable us to get Air Force One off
the ground with clean/green energy alone. It may never exist in our
In the meantime, we should content ourselves with carefully reaping
the resources God has given us in our land: gas, oil, and coal, while
keeping a research eye on such things as wind, tides, geothermal, and
