“The time is coming when people won't listen to good teaching. Instead, they will look for teachers who will please them by telling them only what they are itching to hear. They will turn from the truth and eagerly listen to senseless stories. But you must stay calm and be willing to suffer. You must work hard to tell the good news and to do your job well.”
(2Timothy 4:3-5 CEV)
Regardless of whether you subscribe to the "God told us to tame the earth" camp or the "God wants us to be good stewards of the earth," you have to be concerned with the decision to award the Nobel Peace Prize to Albert Alfred (Al) Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in Oslo, Norway. For the first time, the society has given the award to someone that seems intent on causing disruption of peace rather than pursuing it.
“What happened to those wise people? What happened to those experts in the Scriptures? What happened to the ones who think they have all the answers? Didn't God show that the wisdom of this world is foolish?”
(1Corinthians 1:20 CEV)
The Nobel Prize, given since 1901 in honor of the person for which it is named, Alfred Nobel - scientist, inventor, entrepreneur, author and pacifist, for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and peace, was dishonored today. The Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden gave the award to Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to share halfies "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change."
Al Gore, in his acceptance speech in Norway, spoke of the dire straits we find ourselves in on a planetary scale. Despite the fact that his movie, made after his aspirations for the highest office in America were dashed by the American public, is wrought with errors, at least eleven that most scientific entities are in agreement on, Gore stands upon his rhetoric.
"We, the human species, are confronting a planetary emergency — a threat to the survival of our civilization that is gathering ominous and destructive potential even as we gather here" the cry of this 'presidential hopeful turned global warming activist' sounded out in Oslo. "But there is hopeful news as well: we have the ability to solve this crisis and avoid the worst — though not all — of its consequences, if we act boldly, decisively and quickly."
We think we are God, able to control what scientists throughout the world claim is a result of the sun. Rather, maybe we should run for the hills, the seas and all of God's creation no longer cry out for mankind's restoration but its destruction. “It is time to make peace with the planet." Gore proclaims, calling the nations to action in a scale “seen only when nations mobilized for war.” The planet is dying and we are killing it. All of the natural disasters aren't the result of a planet caring for itself, but a reaction to the 'infestation of man' upon it.
Of course, to lend weight to Gore's cry of peace, we have to ignore the mistakes he makes in his declaration of war by "too many of the world’s leaders" that he regards as going "on in strange paradox, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all powerful to be impotent.'", words that Winston Churchill spoke about the ignored threat of Adolf Hitler.
"In the last few months, it has been harder and harder to misinterpret the signs that our world is spinning out of kilter." Gore refers to his claims that African deserts are expanding, which was denied in New Scientist; the Antarctic ice sheet melting as a cause of global warming, which has been proven to be happening for several decades naturally, according to Nature Magazine; or even that Greenland is rapidly becoming its namesake, which the Journal of Glaciology denies.
According to Alexander Dumas, “He thinks if he shows Florida under water he will get more people interested in passing a global tax on carbon emissions than if he tells the truth that over the next hundred years the rise in the oceans is predicted by [the] scientists he quotes to only be 13 inches."
Gore's biggest rhetorical trick is saying that the Earth has a fever, exposing that the temperature of the earth has risen for ten years, and as such, proves we have to respond or face deaths. Despite the earth being hotter than it is currently several times in the past.
There hasn't been a significant change in temperature, to the degree where there has been NO temperature drop but a steady continuous one since 1988 means the warming periods of the 1920s and 1930s and the cooling periods of the 1940s and 1970s were natural occurrences. Such talk of treating temperatures of babies in respond to global warming show that it is indeed too late to save the planet, because we are too scared to be realistic.
But, Gore proclaims that we only have to do our moral duty and endure the judgments already rendered to have our descendants praise us for our courage.
The Kyoto Protocol (which Gore helped negotiate), would cost the U.S. gross domestic product by $100 billion dollars while (if enacted by all its parties) would only reduce global warming by a mere .07 degrees Celsius by 2050.
Rather than being a active and moralistic attempt to be stewards of the planet, all Gore is attempting to do, as Margot Walstrom states "This is about international relations, this is about economy, and about trying to create a level playing field for big businesses throughout the world." What Gore would have us believe is a 'clear' cry of those compelled to live in peace with the planet, it is clearly the path to world wide economic destruction and hardship.
The irrefutable fact remains that scientific community has shown that the sun heats the world, and carbon gasses increase and decrease after increases and decreases in temperature. Of course, this is ignored amidst Gore's claims of glaciers are melting, snowcaps shrinking, tornadoes and more hurricanes that grow in severity are all caused by global warming that have been dismissed and proved false by scientists.
Gore would have you believe he cares about the damage that humanity is doing in its war against the planet, despite his carbon signature being much larger than any private citizen in the United States. But then, he has the money to purchase carbon tickets..........
"Gore is an embarrassment to the nation and should be recognized for being a despotic fool not someone who promoted the cause of peace. One can never base recognition for achievement on self serving lies and misstatements," according to Matt Lowry of the Conservative Voice, in October, when he spoke of the "Inconvenient Truth" release, Gore’s vehicle of mutually assured panic.
The fact that 'Inconvenient Truth' is censored by at least one governmental body seems to be ignored by the Nobel panel, "The British Courts have reportedly ruled the film “An Inconvenient Truth” can only be shown in classrooms with truth qualifications;......the Film is a political work and promotes only one side of the argument, teachers present[ing] the Film without making this plain..[will be].. guilty of political indoctrination, and the eleven inaccuracies have to be specifically drawn to the attention of school children.”
More and more, mankind is redefining his world to reflect his seemingly overwhelming superiority to the Creator; as we seek to clone ourselves, demand intolerance of the tolerable, declare truth as inflexible lies, and the minority of the population defy conventional wisdom to control the majority populace.
Soon, we will be fearful of our own shadows......displacing the Ground Hog, who will declare the disruption of the season to be due to intolerant beliefs in his desire to deliver joyful results.
Make sense? Neither does giving someone who has been proven wrong a prize for the lies they tell.
But we have.
