Is global warming irreversible at this point?
The past few years have seen extreme climate changes and increases in average temperatures. Scientists and others are concerned that global warming can't be reversed. What do you think?
I think the subject needs a great deal more investigation. Right now climate change is all about the redistribution of wealth in this world. That has nothing to do with climate and everything to do with politics. There are many, many respected scientists who do not believe that anything unusual is going on at all.
When the dinosaurs were running around, there was no ice at the poles. After every warm period, we've slid back into an ice age.
It has been warmer than this for most of Earth's history until we started the ice age cycles 40 million years ago, and we've been warmer than this during this and past interglacial periods.
Yes, it can get colder and likely will.
The truth is, theories about global warming and climate change continue to evolve as data continues to be both revealed and manipulated. When this topic comes up it always seems so illogical to base suppositions about the future on theories about how old the earth is and what happened to it long before the earliest technology provided information to mankind, yet theories are still taught as fact.
Climate change is nothing new. We have no idea what the entire earth's temperature was 4,000 years ago or what it means that it is warmer today than 100 years ago. What stands to reason to some scientists doesn't to others, but if not agreed with evolutionists shout the data of non-evolutionist scientists down and even threaten them.
What if we had the power to reverse earth's current temperatures and we did it, but in the grand scheme of things it was absolutely the wrong thing to do, causing more harm than good? Sort of silly to think about, but the principle behind the concept gives me lots of food for thought.
The more I understand God's Word to us the more I see His sustaining hand at work in His created world. He has granted me belief of what He says about the earth's future and His plan for it now and in the future. It's a wonderful thing to trust Him and have the peace that passes the understanding of scientists who do not trust Him.

I New it ! The era of "political correctness" may finally be maturing into something slightly better ? NOAA having been instrumental in promoting the whole recent Global Warming alarmism may be returning to it's actual day jobof predicting the weather?
