The question of the hour: What would Chicken Little do?
George Orwell warned, “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
Here are a couple of facts to soothe your weary mind.
In bygone days of Earth’s history, lush green forests covered Antarctica. [Ref: http://bit.ly/2nBH36o] During the Cambrian period, atmospheric CO2 ranged as high as 8,000 ppm. [Ref: Soil Carbon (Progress in Soil Science) http://amzn.to/2oA7GNN]
Does the climate change? Of course, it does! The geologic record reveals long periods of glaciation and long periods of global warming. In fact, (can you handle it?) we are presently moving into a mini-ice age.
Fake (politicized) science gives you BAD news; I have GOOD news.
In God’s timeline of terrestrial history, we near the end of this age. There will be great trials ahead – wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, volcanoes, and other nasty events. But, the GOOD news is God sent his only natural born son to earth two millennia ago to undo all the evil Satan has done since the very beginning.
There are ever more atheists among us today than any time in human history. But, as the Reverend William T. Cummings who served at Bataan wisely said, “There are no atheists in foxholes.”
When you next encounter Chicken Little running madly about, telling people the sky is falling, tell him to chill out.
