Obama, Climate Change and Evolution
How very clever that environmentalists have changed "global warming" to "climate change." This way, they can count on receiving taxpayer money even if the earth is found to be cooling down. As Barack Obama is sworn into office today, we expect that more taxpayer money will be spent to control climate change.
After all, he has selected key advisers who believe strong action is needed to address climate change. In addition to Steven Chu (a climate-change technology advocate) as the next secretary of Energy, he selected Harvard's John Holdren (a climate and energy expert) as his science adviser and marine biologist Jane Lubchenco to head up the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
We also expect that more taxpayer money will be spent to teach evolution to our kids. As this blog reported previously, Obama believes that evolution alone should be taught in public schools. He told the York Daily Record last August, "I think it's a mistake to try to cloud the teaching of science with theories that frankly don't hold up to scientific inquiry."
So as our new president places his hand on the Bible today and takes the oath of office, we will certainly heed the Bible's instruction to pray for him. However, we will also be praying specifically that President Obama discovers he's on the wrong side of both climate change and evolution.
