Christianity and Global Warming
I’ve recommended audio from the Acton Institute before, and they just keep cranking out great commentary. Today’s recommendation is for Jay Richard’s "Is it Hot In Here? What Should Christians Think About Global Warming?" At an hour and 20 minutes, it’s a bit to take in, but it goes in depth into 4 questions that Jay considers the main issues.
- Is the globe warming?
- Is man causing it?
- Is it a bad thing?
- What can / should government do about it?
You’ll find that Jay does believe that we’re in a warming trend if you only look back to the mid-1800s, but there have been times when the Earth has been much warmer, and Jay mentions something I’ve touched on before; that Greenland used to be farmland before SUVs, and yet the polar bears survived.
He’s clear about what is his opinion and what is fact, so I think this is a balanced assessment of the situation.
