“I was thinking.” Part 9

Climate change is real! Climate change is a myth! The science is undeniable climate change is happening now! There is no consistent scientific evidence for climate change! The two sides keep arguing. Who is right?

Whether climate change is happening, right or wrong, we should look after what we have by way of personal property and by way of the Earth we dwell on. God has placed us as stewards of His creation. The bible puts it like this:- Gen 1:26-27 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. NKJV

It is so clear resources are finite and humanity can be very messy. We are currently and collectively consuming the planet with production of both necessities and luxuries and by careless handling of materials after use. It is pretty clear that unless action is taken, at an individual level and at national governmental level, the beauty we appreciate all around us could be swamped and spoiled very seriously and maybe irredeemably.

The tendency for mankind to be willing for personal benefit to major on short term activity without regard to the medium or long term consequences of such actions, is plain. Almost anywhere you look carefully you will find examples. Deforestation; gold mining; open cast mining; extraction of minerals; extraction of water from rivers and lakes; ivory poachers; exploited cheap labour; unrestricted pollution levels; we could go on.

Some feel so strongly that the level of protest against the perceived causes of climate change is rising and becoming increasingly disruptive.
