Is Trump Responsible for Florence?

FeaturedIs Trump Responsible for Florence?

Monday through Friday I deal with different subjects in this blog. I also post my blog to my Facebook page at RFrederickRiddlesWorld. Monday’s I try to focus on issues. This week I am taking a look at Is Trump Responsible for Florence.
The Washington Post Editorial Board recently blamed President Trump for what was then Hurricane Florence. They even got a global warming “expert” to lay it out to fuel the blame gameDrought . The climate researcher claimed, according to the Post article “that previous hurricanes would not have produced so much rain without “human-induced climate change” and Florence is another indication of global warming.”
This stunning statement drew a quick response from Conservative strategist Chris Barron of Fox news. “This column is so absurd it should be coming from The Onion not the Washington Post. To the extent that climate change is happening, it is a global phenomenon that has been occurring for decades and decades,” Barron said. “The media won’t give Trump credit for the economy but they will blame him for a hurricane. You can’t make this stuff up.””
Apparently you can.
The researcher hides behind “science” and “climate change.” But no facts are produced. This is not a surprise. After all it wasn’t long ago that climate change scientists twisted facts to produce data that indicated great dangers to the world. Their lies were caught and they were temporarily embarrassed. They still make the same claims today even though precious little evidence is produced to support them.
Plus, why should we believe them? They lied for years before getting caught. Can we believe them now?
Too blame any sitting president for the weather is rather ludicrous. Somehow a sitting president is to blame for something that has, according to them, been around for decades. These editors probably believe that our current economic boom was the result of President Obama’s policies although history teaches otherwise.
But isn’t Global Warming a Fact?
That gets a big fat “maybe.” If you review world history climate change is always happening to some extent. Shortly after the Flood the Ice Age occurred according to the latest scientific findings. But you really don’t have to go back that far. During my father’s young adult years in the 1930s there was the severe drought known as the “Dust Bowl.” This was localized to the United States and Canada. But the dust bowl was caused by drought and improper farming methods.
When I was a child in the late forties and early fifties we had extreme cold weather in Michigan and other states. But again that was localized. But we should ask is global warming is worldwide? And that is where the “iffy” comes into play. People on both sides of the argument can support their positions with data, including videos. Another problem with the global warming argument is that it seems to fit in nicely with the liberal philosophy. And that always raises a red flag.
At best the argument that there is some global warming has the most credibility. But it is hard to get alarmed by the evidence. So those favoring the socialistic solutions need greater or stronger evidence. So they reason that they ‘know that global warming is true’ so let’s change the evidence to agree with what we know.’ In most circles that is called lying and is what got them in trouble a few years back.
But Trump is Anti-Global Warming.
That is true. But being anti-global warming doesn’t mean he’s complicit in it (if indeed it is occurring). There is room for disagreement and for reaching compromises on this issue, but blaming the president for something that has been going on is not only foolish but in my opinion stupid.
So What’s the Truth?
Good question. If people would stop throwing mud at those who disagree with them and if the Left would stop their dire, alarmist predictions, perhaps a few intelligent people can truly sit down and determine the truth and what to do about it.
What Does the Bible Say About Global Warming?
The term Global Warming does not occur in the Bible. However at least 1007 years into the future you do read about the Earth being destroyed by fire. The 7 years represent the coming Tribulation and the 1000 years represent the Millennium (1000 year) Kingdom. Both are future events and the fire comes as judgment not as a long warming trend.
There is one fact that we should all consider whether you believe in Global Warming or not. We are stewards of this Earth. Therefore we should be taking wise steps toward preserving our environment. Sometimes liberal thinking is right on, but needs conservative management to make it work. If someone could get the liberals and conservatives to meet and work together we could start addressing existing climate change now and in the foreseeable future.

Global Warming

Global Warming

Monday’s I try to focus on issues. These can be spiritual, religious, political, economic, or just about anything. Today I am focusing on the weather, particularly “global warming.”

Since I’m not a scientist I won’t write from the view of science. This is actually good because the scientific community is overrun by global alarmists to such a degree, pardon the pun, that reasonable discussion is almost impossible.

This is unfortunate being as there are problems with the global warming viewpoint. Last week I read an article purporting that investing in global warming can bring great economic benefits. Now, if you’re talking individually I would agree. Al Gore with his Inconvenient Truth movie did all right for himself. The fact that the movie was flawed and that he personally doesn’t live according to “green” theology is beside the point.

The fact is that the scientific study of weather has a rather recent beginning of only a few hundred years. But historically there is a better record and it seems to indicate that the weather is cyclic. That is, there are periods of cooling (such as the Ice Age) and periods of warming. The Ice Age didn’t happen millions of years ago, but rather about 2,500 years ago right after the Flood. It is believed it lasted for only a few hundred years.

So when you talk about the Earth warming there is truth in that. But that should not bring concerns about the end of the world. If you read the Bible you know how the world will end and you have a small understanding of how it will be renewed.

According to the Bible the Earth will never have a worldwide flood again. But rather it will burn up. Because of global warming? Maybe, but doubtful. Rather God will cause the Earth to be destroyed by fire; purged if you will of the results of sin since the days of Adam. Then there will be a New Earth!

So will investing in the global warming industry reap financial benefits for all of mankind? I find this doubtful. Unless man starts using a commonsense approach to global warming theories, the benefits will be hard to come by. Don’t believe me? Ask the coal workers who have been victimized by a concerted effort to shut down their industry. The current thinking, supported by the previous administration, is that they are right and if it takes loss of work, health or life to accomplish their will, it will be worth it.

I think that if global warming is truly coming (and the ‘experts’ blame everything on it) then it should be embraced. Instead of resisting and trying to stop it, there should be an effort to understand it and profit thereby. But most ‘green’ solutions are aimed at stopping it.

The problem is that global warming is probably not happening on the scale that the tabloids and shock troops of ‘the world is ending’ persuasion claim. But, influenced by a flawed movie and self-serving lies, they press forward demanding changes that would undermine, at the least, world economies. They talk of the weather getting hotter and hotter; they even provide a measure of degrees by which it will grow hotter. But the truth is that it is all built on a theory that is supported by lies or, as supporters say, ‘It may not be the truth, but if it brings about the desired change it is worth it.’

Thinking again of the coal industry, I think they have at least tried to become more ‘green’ friendly with their ‘clean coal.’ That is a practical approach. It isn’t sexy nor does it glitter, but it can protect jobs, reduce prices, and bring a Return On Investment (ROI). That is the kind of thinking we need.
