Letter: Climate change is in God's control

July 15, 2013 

Has anyone noticed the term "global warming" was subtly changed to "climate change?" Did you wonder why? Maybe the following article explains.

An article titled What to make of a Warming Plateau was published in the very liberal New York Times on June 10, 2013. The article states that the earth's surface temperature rise has been markedly slower over the last 15 years even as greenhouse gases have accumulated in the atmosphere at a record pace and this is a mystery to climate scientists. The entire article makes light of the fact that this is occurring and tells us that temperatures will soon rise again.

Global warming is not occurring. The earth temperatures cycle from warmer to cooler as God has ordained. Maybe climate scientists don't know as much as they thought they did.

Another ice age is coming! Does that sound familiar? That was the "settled science" of the early 1970s.

The fact is that puny man, with his supposedly superior knowledge, will never be able to control the climate. God is in control. Many scriptures state that he controls the climate and that truth will stand when the world is on fire (real global warming).
