commentary: The Climate-Change Hoax
A Narrative Designed to Deceive
Richard T. Ritenbaugh
Given 11-Mar-17; Sermon #1367c; 14 minutes
Richard Ritenbaugh, reflecting on Scott Pruitt, President Trump's appointee for the Environmental Protection Agency, explains that Pruitt welcomes a healthy debate on climate concerns, but denies there is any "consensus" on the alleged man-made "Global Warming" "Global Cooling" or "Climate Change." The same group of alarmists that predicted a coming "ice age" in the 1970's pivoted to the opposite extreme with Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth and the infamous hockey-stick graph, a scare-tactic intended to delude uninformed citizens that the earth's ice caps were melting and its sea-levels rising. The really "inconvenient truth" is that many opportunist scientists, self-interestedly desiring government grants and political control, deliberately created a hoax, cooking the books on temperature reports in order to maintain a false narrative. By definition, weather involves short-term changes in temperature, humidity and precipitation, while climate's view is of the long-range warming and cooling of the earth caused by the sun. Truly, mankind, although it has been a bad steward of the earth's resources, has little control on climate. God alone has that prerogative. When God unleashes the Trumpet Plagues on the earth, those living will see some real climate change. Until then, we are going through normal weather fluctuations. God's people must strive to live in reality by resisting the Climate Change hoax, an unmitigated lie perpetuated by greedy politicians and avaricious scientists.
