I was reading an article on the wollemi pine tree in the March issue of the Smithsonian magazine. What’s special about this pine tree? It has been extinct since the time of the dinosaurs.
The article goes on to say the wollemi pine survived 17 different ice ages over millions of years. As a Christian, I do not hold to the belief system supporting millions of years. I do see the evidence for one ice age.
The evidence shows much of North America was covered by large layers of glacial ice. The northern part of the U.S. is no longer covered in ice. What happened? It is obvious: the ice melted. The conflict I see is man was not around, the millions of years belief, or men were few, young earth, and not a significant factor in global warming. Why, then, is our government pushing all these government controls that drive up the cost of energy, food and other items?
We should not waste our resources, but we are not to be subservient to the process of conserving them. How much of our national wealth has gone to foreign countries because we would not drill for our own oil? How much of our tax money has been thrown away supporting green energy projects?
Where is the evidence that man caused all the prior incidents of global warming? (I forgot, man was not there). What is the scientific evidence showing man is now causing global warming? I do not mean projections based on assumptions or what fallible mankind believes.
