New Age Science and An Inconvenient Truth

QUESTION: New Age Science – An Inconvenient Truth


“With wit, smarts and hope,” trumpets the film’s website, An Inconvenient Truth (2006), “ultimately brings home [Al] Gore’s persuasive argument that we can no longer afford to view global warming as a political issue[;] rather, it is the biggest moral challenge facing our global civilization.” However, according to UPI science writer, Hil Anderson, “the Washington lobbying machine isn’t taking this cinematic exercise lying down. News releases from various think tanks have begun flying around that pan the movie not so much for its cinematic merits, but rather for giving credibility to global warming.

New Age Science – What’s the Truth about Climate Change?
‘The complexity of the climate and the limitations of data and computer models mean all projections of future climate change are unreliable at best,’ wrote David Legates, director of the University of Delaware’s Center for Climatic Research and author of a new study on global warming for the National Center for Policy Analysis... ‘The campaign to limit carbon dioxide emissions is the single most important regulatory issue today,’ summed up CEI Senior Fellow Marlow Lewis. ‘It is nothing short of an attempt to suppress energy use, which in turn would be economically devastating—all to avert an alleged catastrophe whose scientific basis is dubious.’ Critics of global warming argue that modest increases of a degree or two may constitute a change in the climate, but hardly one that will KO the world as we know it.”1

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
