The Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has accused Bill Nye "the Science Guy" of promoting "the religion of naturalism" and seeking to "brainwash generations of kids" due to the release of his latest book focused on the dangers of climate change, titled Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World.
"The more you read what Bill Nye is saying, the more you should realize he is on a mission to brainwash generations of kids in the religion of naturalism — which in reality is atheism," Ham says in his Answers in Genesis blog.
"Bill Nye has previously made alarming claims about climate change and the coming disastrous effects of it, and likely this book will perpetuate those alarmist ideas," he adds. more >>

President Obama told some whoppers the size of Mt. McKinley, I mean Denali, about global warming while he was here in Alaska.
At a climate change conference in Anchorage Obama attempted to scare the long-johns off Alaskans he obviously thinks are stupid when he predicted "submerged countries, abandoned cities … entire industries of people who can't practice their livelihoods, desperate refugees seeking the sanctuary of nations not their own, and political disruptions that could trigger multiple conflicts around the globe." more >>
Ola Carpenter operates the Ms Ola School of Barbering and Community Development, a non-profit organization in Hattiesburg, MS. She has been a barbering instructor at Pearl River Community College there, from which, after having worked for 20 years at Big Yank clothing factory, she and her son and daughter all graduated in 1994. She knows the value of vocational education and hard work.
Last month she joined "more than 170 Evangelical Christian leaders" in signing a letter, orchestrated by the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN), to President Barack Obama supporting his "Clean Power Plan" (CPP).
The letter commends the President for his "leadership on climate change," saying, "We see overcoming the climate challenge as one of the great moral opportunities of our time, a chance to fulfill the Great Commandments to love God, our neighbors, and ourselves." more >>
Like the road to Hell, liberal ideas are usually paved with good intentions. But, as Ronald Reagan once said, "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so." And all that vast un-knowledge births monster government agencies like the EPA, which end up doing more harm than good.
Today, with more than 15,000 fulltime employees-strong and led by environmental extremists, Obama's Environmental Protection Agency is an agency gone-wild. A report just out by the Institute for Energy Research [IER] concludes the EPA's finalized "Clean Power Plan" is filled with about as much junk as the EPA and contractors just pumped into Colorado's Animas River.
The Clean Power Plan effectually triggers the skyrocketing electricity prices Mr. Obama duly promised years back. Nevertheless, the EPA says the plan will save thousands of lives, improving the climate and our health. That is, barring additional EPA-caused environmental disasters. more >>
During a visit to the Holy Land, Mark Twain and his wife stayed in Capernaum near the Sea of Galilee. One beautiful night, he decided to take his wife on a romantic moonlit ride on that famous body of water. Dressed in his signature white hat, suit and shoes, he strolled down the pier and asked a man sitting in a near-by row boat the price for rowing them out.
Presuming that this cultured-acting man to be a wealthy individual from the states, the opportunistic oarsman said he would charge $25 American dollars. After thanking the man, Twain was heard to say as he and his wife turned away, "No wonder Jesus chose to walk."
It must have been something of this same sentiment against greed and corporate interests Pope Francis was meaning to voice in his recent encyclical Laudato Si', where he strangely censures the use of air conditioning. more >>
The United Church of Canada plans to invest nearly $6 million into alternative energy sources that it acquired from selling all of its assets in fossil fuels. The denomination views the move as a bold step toward stewarding the gift of creation.
"Care for creation and concern for the way that climate is impacting the most marginalized populations made this move an act of justice, of faith, and of solidarity with First Nations and other impacted communities," said Christine Boyle, General Council commissioner of the United Church and a veteran climate advocate, according to the National Advocate.
The church will sell off around $5.9 million in holdings from 200 of the world's largest fossil fuel companies. more >>
