Global Warming/Climate Change

When it comes to climate change/global warming, why do we always ask and argue over the wrong questions? Is it real? Is it caused by man? We use present events to prove or disprove points that makes no real sense. Washington D.C. had a blizzard so that proves climate change is a hoax or this is the first time in recorded history that Minneapolis had no snow in the month of March (usually their second snowiest month) which proves it’s real and we need to do something now.

Lately my answers to these questions and arguments has been “SHUT UP!” The questions should be, Are we polluting? Is pollution a good thing? Are we capable/do we have the technology that would allow us to pollute less? Most people can agree on the answers to those questions.

Arguing over the affect humans have on the world weather is a waste of time. If they do, then making the changes necessary could save future generations and countless lives. If they don’t then we as a species just did the good/right thing by polluting less.

“Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it”.
Henry David Thoreau “

    The God of creation sustains the universe. We need to be stewards but we are not in control. One volcano can do more damage to the climate that 6 billion people in their lifetimes. God might just be allowing the natural order to cool the planet. Just a thought.

    If we wish to act as stewards, we need to work together and end the arguments over the obvious. And why is it when one fails to understand the obvious, it must be God’s plan. Does anyone even know what God’s plan may be?
