The Goldilocks Zone
Genesis 8:22
"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
I'm sure you remember the fairytale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Goldilocks tries to eat papa bear's porridge but finds it too hot. So she turns to a second bowl, and it's too cold. Finally she...

What Meteorologists Think About “Greenhouse”

Matthew 24:30
“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

What do professional meteorologists think about claims that the Earth is undergoing a greenhouse effect because of man’s activities? Scientific opinion is growing that there is nothing to the idea that the Earth is either warming or in danger of warming under the proposed influence of the greenhouse effect. More in the scientific community are also becoming increasingly outspoken in their opposition to the false science used to support the idea that man’s activities are causing the Earth to become warmer.

Carbon dioxide fluctuationIn one Gallup poll a cross-section of members of the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society were interviewed. Did these scientists, who should know better than anyone else, think that the greenhouse effect is something to fear? According to the poll, less than half – 41 percent – thought that there is scientific evidence for global warming. However, 70 percent thought that the scientific work supporting greenhouse conclusions is “fair to poor.” So it is not true that all scientists accept the idea that greenhouse warming is going on. Less than half of the professional meteorologists believe it’s happening. And most suspect the quality of the scientific work supporting ideas about greenhouse warming.

While Christians favor good stewardship of our resources, we need not fear the destruction of our planet, as do the unbelievers. Christ clearly tells us that Christians will be here to greet Him when He returns.

Prayer: 
I thank You, dear Father, that You have promised to protect and provide for Your people on Earth until Christ returns. At the same time, I ask Your forgiveness for those times when I have carelessly misused and abused Your creation, and I ask Your help to be a better steward of Your gifts. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
