With Obamacare obviously failing to provide promised affordable health care and falling apart in the face of legal challenges and states' refusal to participate, it's becoming increasingly clear that President Obama has decided to make ending "climate change" his legacy.
"If you believe, like I do, that something has to be done on this, then you're going to have to speak out," Obama told students and faculty at the University of California at Irvine last June. "You've got to educate your classmates, and colleagues, and family members and fellow citizens, and tell them what's at stake."
Creation Museum President and CEO Ken Ham has affirmed that despite numerous misrepresentations in the media, creationists do not deny that climate change exists, and said that it has been occurring since biblical times.
"No matter how many times we say that we do not deny climate change, secularists continue to say that we are climate change deniers," Ham wrote in a blog post for Answers in Genesis.
He added that creationists deny "worldview-based assumptions" about the causes of climate change, and argued that it is observational science that needs to be interpreted in the right way. more >>

In "Climate Change, Creation Care, and the Cosmic Glue," Paul de Vries sets forth excellent principles for Christian care of creation:The earth was good when God made it, and "When we humans have messed up some aspects of God's creation, we should seek to restore them." People should be stewards of God's earth, and dominion granted in Genesis 1:28 does not mean abuse but "'improving and protecting' nature." We are to love our neighbors as ourselves, including by how we treat the earth and its resources. Jesus Christ "dwells in his creation, sustaining everything that exists," and we should "serve our Creator and take some responsibility to free his creation from its being so badly 'subjected to futility' (Romans 8:20, partly through pollution) and its being in 'bondage to decay' (Romans 8:21, partly through depletion of natural resources."
With these every thoughtful Christian should agree. more >>
Some evangelical climate alarmists are trying to persuade Florida Governor Rick Scott that global warming is a pro-life issue. He should not be fooled.
Christian ethics distinguishes between intentional (Exodus 21:12, 14) and accidental homicide (Exodus 21:13; Deuteronomy 21:5–6).
That distinction alone proves that climate change is not a pro-life issue. more >>
Executive chairman of Google Eric Schmidt reportedly created serious political fallout for a significant number of legislators Monday when he accused the prominent American Legislative Exchange Council of "literally lying" about climate change in explaining why the company is no longer a member of the organization.
On its website, ALEC says it "works to advance limited government, free markets and federalism at the state level through a nonpartisan public-private partnership of America's state legislators, members of the private sector and the general public."
This past weekend hundreds of thousands of environmental activists took to the streets of New York City to demand action when it comes to "climate change."
This "climate march" drew thousands of our nation's earth lovers. But, as is true in most cases—these activists were quick to abandon their principles at the first convenience. After the excitement died down and the crowds dwindled, all that was left of this march was litter strewn about the streets as though a tornado ravaged the Big Apple.
How is it that these Mother Earth-loving activists couldn't find a receptacle to stow away their food wrappers, plastic bottles, and Starbucks cups? Better yet, how come they didn't try to recycle their items? It seems as though they want everyone to collectively reduce pollution but feel no personal responsibility to their cause. My term for this: "hippie hypocrisy." more >>
