In the 1970’s they said there was global cooling and we would have an ice age, crops would fail, we would have millions starving to death and we had to act NOW!!!!! Well the 1970’s led to the 80’s and even the 90’s and no ice age or global cooling came to pass. The global cooling thing was hoax back then and a money maker for those who could exploit from the simple minded folks who panicked.
We now we are in a state of global warming and the polar ice caps were to be gone in 2016 according to alarmists and Al Gore. Don’t you just hate it when they say these things and you finally get to 2016 and those polar ice caps are all gone? OOPS – what do we see – ice caps. Another money making hoax.
Yes the earth does get cool and them warm. Yes it has for millions of years (as some believe) and yes it will do the same for many more millions of years (if it last that long) Tree huggers star protest by riding busses to protest sites, paddling plastic kayaks (made from crude oil) sound oil rigs. Some may even have drove their electric cars there on rubber tired with plastic batteries, fenders, dashes while using their plastic smart phones (all made from oil)
I have no problem for those with a cause to rally behind, but how about lets get behind abortion (murder of babies in their mothers) or how about right for everyone (that does include Christians right to worship) or maybe the rights of women in these Muslim countries being stoned or beaten or raped. I could go on and probably should but I won’t for now.
Earth day sounds like a great crusade but it is like many other things, a way to make someone money. Do you remember Y2K? All the computer systems would crash, millions may dies, satellites and please could fall form the sky. I was in the Army at we were required to be at the center guarding the weapons vault as the system could all fail. How much money was made by the tech industry over that one.
Hey – I am all for being prepared. I buy fire insurance, heath insurance, car & home insurance in case we have a disaster. I have food and water stuck back along with other supplies. I prepare for a natural or manmade disaster. Someone asked me what I would do if an asteroid hit the earth and destroyed it – I laughed and said DIE just like everyone else. I prepare for what I can to get through short term problems.
For all you tree huggers and EARTH DAY advocates – keep up your quest but at the same time – do you own homework and read the global cooling – warming issues from the past and put things into perspective. Do not drive a smart car and trash others when they do not. You are using coal to power your outlets to recharge your cars. Your tires, batteries, fenders, and everything plastic you have came from oil. So please use your brain that God gave you and think.
