Concerning the climate change letter from Bill Baum (on May 21) – Climate change skepticism is well earned, and if Bill Baum did much scientific research he would undertand this. First, most of the data developed at the Univeristy of East Anglia in Britian, has been proven and admitted by the scientists who developed the data as false and they admitted it was done to get more money for grants. These studies were the main source of all the “climate change” info circulating at this time.
The fact is that the temperature of the earth has not warmed for 11 years. (Humm ... maybe that’s why you folks went from calling it “global warming” to calling it “climate change.” Can’t be sure what’s going on here?)
Another fact. I have a news flash for Mr. Baum: When you entered this earth, it was not perfect, never was perfect and never will be perfect, but for some reason, people of your ilk seem to think that, since they day they arrived on earth, nothing is supposed to change. Here is the news flash: If we didn’t have global warming we would still be in the last Ice Age. If we didn’t have other natural phenomana we would not have rivers and canyons (carved by rushing water,) mountain ranges (caused by earthquakes, glaciers and other types of erosion,) rocks (broken off the earth when glaciers slid across them or earthquakes broke them up). I could to on and on. If you will note, all the things I have mentioned are natural, even though you may consider them to be “tragedies.”
Please, Mr. Baum. Study the facts deeply and completely. Watch factual TV shows like “How the Earth was Made” and skip the Al Gore specials. Please, for your own enlightenment, take time to find out the facts. Really, the truth is much more pleasant than your fiction.
Finally, weather you believe it or not, we do have an intelligent Creator Who put all the universes in place, and it is He who allows the natural phenomana to take place. So far it’s worked pretty good, except that it does inconvience us humans sometimes. I do notice that animals either adjust or not, usally they adjust. If not, they are gone and hundreds of new species are put on Earth to take their place. Have you read much about new species in Indonesia and the U.S. that have recently been discovered? You see, Mr. Baum, it’s a beautiful thing to know that intelligent creation works in harmony with evolution. Many of us have forgotten about the divine designer (that would be God) and we need to fix that .. . but tha’s a discussion for another day.
