Climate Change - What Does the Bible Say?

 

Climate Change

2020 has ushered in a new decade with the world increasingly gripped by concern at the extreme’s of weather that have been apparent over recent years, concerns that have seen demonstrations and conferences calling for action because of the supposition that all this is being caused by mankind’s actions. Certain scientists, though not all, have concluded that, indeed, climate change is caused by man’s activities all over the world and if not halted the very existence of mankind is at stake!

There are certainly signs of pollution that might suggest this is true. Uncontrolled emissions by industry being pumped into the atmosphere, plastic waste is found littering many places, on beaches and in the seas, which in turn is being ingested by fish and animals. But the overriding conclusion reached has suggested that the rise in carbon dioxide emissions caused by man is producing what have come to be known as ‘greenhouse gasses’. The theory is that these make the suns rays warm up the earth sufficiently to alter the weather. 

At first this effect was called ‘Global Warming’ but this description did not quite take into account that there are also signs of lower temperatures, though glaciers and our polar regions are showing signs of melting. Therefore the term has been amended to ‘Climate Change’.

All of this evidence appears to be irrefutable and there are only a few voices being heard that would suggest these theories might not be correct. Politicians around the world have added their backing to the calls for action, having targets for reducing CO2 emissions from cars and industry to gain votes from those who vote them in. 

Meeting with much opposition, one strikingly different voice has come from the President of the United States, Donald Trump, bringing cries of derision. Speaking about Climate Change he has publicly said, “I don’t think it is a hoax. I think there’s probably a difference, but I’m not sure it’s manmade,” stating, “We must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse.” Donald Trump has dared to suggest there is a conspiracy to undermine the economic competitiveness of the United States, declaring that there are ulterior motives behind some who seek to back this agenda.

As a result of the warnings of disaster fear is gripping the hearts of many people, concerned not just for their own future but that of their children and grandchildren. But what is the truth? 

Underlying the controversy one consideration appears to be lacking - ‘What does the bible say?’ This is largely ignored because the growing majority of mankind no longer believe in God. For them it is not a consideration. So it is that the majority are content with the majority view. But are they right? And does their lack of belief in God indicate a rebellion that makes mankind think he is the sole author of his own destiny?

In this booklet we consider what the bible says. What does God say is the future for mankind?
