Climate Change or Natural Cycle?

Updated on August 25, 2008

Who Denies Global Warming?

It seems like yesterday that our government cast doubts about the the effects of carbon pollution on changing weather patterns.This was not what the world scientific community had reached a consensus about. Preliminary core sample ice showed disturbing changes between the last 150 years and over the last 500 thousand years.

One of the most interesting facts the writer learned was on a Nova feature about climate change.A study of methan gas released by termitesis is having a surprising effect on the climate. Termites have the ability to process fiber and eliminate the gas as methane. What possible effect could the tiny termite have on climate change? Just this: There are 3/4 of a ton of termites for every single man, woman, and child in the world today.

With newer scientific instruments and powerful computers it is clear that we are in a dance of death, a high stakes experimentation with the planet's inhabitants to see who or what lives or dies.

It has only been a few months since a tsunami killed 300,000 people and left countless homeless and with their means of livelihood gone. Closer to home, the City of New Orleans face is changed forever. The devastation has forced thousands to move out of the city forever. Rains in the Midwest threaten again this year to destroy a seasons planting. Farmers have seen weather disruptions that are breaking all the records.

Core samples are sawed from ice fields from as deep as two miles. These samples have rings similar to trees which represent geological time, showing events such as volcanic activity, weather cycles such as ice ages and tropical climates which encouraged the dinosaur period. Great floods and winds, and drought which expanded the desert areas show up as surely as watching a film on natural history. Dust and radiation, mountain formations. It's all there.

According to the forecasters who are using the latest in scientific equipment, a 20 foot surge in the ocean will result when the arctic ice caps melt as a result of warming. Some say it will happen sooner and that some countries are already experiencing higher water levels, while others are experiencing drought. England has installed dukes in anticipation of surges. Forecasts show Russia, rather than the United States as the new bread basket of the world. The western area of the U.S. is in an extended drought, which will surely have an affect of demographics and political distribution of natural resources.

Health resources will be stretched, as more cancers develop as a result of exposure to chemicals in the air, water, and ground, and the magnification of these problems unleashed by the unnatural removal of the Sun's natural filters against its harmful rays.

Will we do anything in the next eight years to significantly reduce the impact of man and his hyper use of carbon fuels to keep the wheels of commerce turning? Are special interests already sabotaging a move to alternate, replaceable fuels?

There is hope. Major movers like Google and Wal-mart are taking a lead in teaching by doing, spending large sums to show that energy may be developed through using natural resources, such as the sun. Schools and universities are graduating scholars who are committed to saving the planet for the use of future generations.

Some are suggesting we are in the end times described in the Bible. The reader may find another passage, however, where God gave his promise not to destroy the earth again. He made no mention of the possible destruction

of the earth through mans' ignorance, greed, and inability to suffer change that will lead to an extension of life and new growth. One of the most accurate prophets was Nostradamus, who advised that prophecies are not cast in stone. Hopefully his is right.

In the 1940's, Edward Cayce predicted the shift in the magnetic poles, and the melting of the polar caps. This was before the notion of global warming had been born! His final words however, point to hope for mankind, but only if Man will change the destructive course set for himself.

Jesus Christ, the most well known of the prophets predicted the destruction of the Temple in AD70; by the Romans, the persecution and exile of the Jews, and he wept, possibly seeing the holicast, 1800 years in the future.

      "Closer to home, the City of New Orleans face is changed forever."

      New Orleans changed forever because the levies were breached. Poorly built levies (under the Clinton administration) are hardly a vestige of climate change.

      its undeniable that there's been a drastic change with our wether and climate pattern around the world and it may be caused by humans destruction of our planet. predictions can serve as a warning for us that it may happen if we will not be responsible with our actions.
