The Glaciers Are Melting!!!!!

Okay, if I hear the words “Global” and “Warming” used together one more time, I am going to scream!!!! It seems that those words are the national buzz word these days. Here is the truth of the matter: Call it what you want (Global—–Warming – ugh!, Ozone Effect, etc, etc), but the reality is that the Bible speaks of strange weather in the last days. If people would just forget about the Ozone and realize that God is in control of the weather (even my 5 year old knows the verse that says “Even the winds and the waves obey Him” Matthew 8:27). We can control emissions, do away with aerosol cans, and burn clean fuel, but the bottom line remains the same: God is in control of ALL things and nothing we can do will change His perfect plan. Oh, we need to be concerned about warming—the warming of the people who will spend an eternity in hell without Christ. That is the kind of warming that we need to prevent — let God deal with the melting glaciers.

Mountain glaciers are melting faster now than at any time in the past 5,000 years because of an unprecedented period of global warming, a study has found.

Ice cores taken from mountains as far apart as the Andes in South America and the Himalayas in Asia have revealed how climate change is leading to a full-scale retreat of the world’s tropical glaciers.

Scientists have warned that human activities over the past 100 years may have nudged the global climate beyond a critical threshold which could see most of the highest ice caps disappearing within the near future. Melting glaciers in South America and Asia not only contribute to rising sea levels, they are also vital sources of freshwater for many millions of people who live within their range at lower altitudes, the scientists said.

The scientists, led by Lonnie Thompson of Ohio State University, present three lines of evidence pointing to a dramatic melting of glaciers in both the Andes and the Himalayas: a change in the chemical isotopes of the ice cores, the widespread retreat of glaciers and the uncovering of frozen plants that had been buried for thousands of years.

    God is in control, that’s for sure. It is just strange that on one hand we have them saying the glaciers are melting and on the other, they say the warming trend has been going on for 2000 years, well in advance of the Industial Revolution. So if man is tipping the scale, why did it start before man was making greenhouse gases?

    It seems like there is no exact science to science, huh? (Wow, that was profound! – Feel free to quote me on that – hahahahaha)
