This last Saturday was Earth Day. It all started back in 1970 to bring awareness to what damage humans have done to the earth over the billions of years we have been here (or not).
This “movement” led to the making of the demonic EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency. I say demonic not because I don’t think the planet needs protecting at all but because the Gestapo-style tactics of the EPA hurt many businesses who really didn’t deserve it. They could have worked a little better at helping businesses get in line with the laws.
Somewhere along the way, Earth Day was turned into a “March for Science!” WHAT? A March for Science? I just happened to be in Pasadena while a group of young people was very excited about participating in this march. As it happened I was waiting to cross the street with a group of giddy girls with the signs and pom-poms in support of “science”.
Joe: Ladies what’s going on?
Ladies: We are marching to support science.
Joe: Wow there are people that don’t believe in science?
Ladies: Yup, they don’t believe in climate change and how it hurts the earth. A lot of them are religious, some just think it’s all a joke!
Joe: Well I’m, “religious” and I believe in science!
Ladies: You DO? Really?
Joe: Yup! BUT I believe God made science not science making God. I believe that the reason that H2O makes water is that God willed it that way, not science. Science just discovered God’s plan for water. Science is good and cool BUT not always correct!
You know how your dog looks when he hears a high-pitched squeal? Yup, that’s what they looked like. I was looking for a re-boot button because they looked stuck! Way too much logic to process in a short period of time.
I told the ladies to get informed and look up failed predictions of Global cooling, warming, climate change, whatever!
Since I know they probably won’t and you probably won’t either, let’s look at Al Gore’s house of mirrors.
So how many times does one have to get predictions wrong before you kick them to the curb? In the Old Testament when a prophet said he had a word from God and it didn’t happen they stoned him! Thirteen years ago Saturday, Al Gore predicted, in front of a German audience, that the “North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years” and that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”
When that didn’t work out he predicted it again in 2009, “Some of the models suggest that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during some of the summer months, could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years.” We’re still waiting. Maybe he is using a different calendar.
