Climate Change is REAL

klimawandel

As a Christian with a scientific background, who sees no conflict between faith and science, I find it incomprehensible how anyone can deny the reality of climate change and global warming.

Similarly, I find it puzzling how people can believe and share dubious articles that have no basis in empirical evidence, sometimes combining this with a belief that God alone is responsible for the planet and it’s nothing to do with us. It’s so much easier to pass the blame onto someone else (even if that person is God) than face the consequences of our own actions.

As I understand it, climate change is cyclical (earth’s history shows this), but global warming (since the start of the Industrial Revolution) is largely the result of human activity. This is accepted by the vast majority of the worldwide scientific community.

My responsibility as a human being and as a Christian is to care for the planet and its inhabitants. God does not expect us to be careless and irresponsible towards his creation. We all need to play our part to look after our home, the planet that has been entrusted to us for our children and future generations.

One thought on “Climate Change is REAL

  1. I’m so pleased to read your words, John. One of the main reasons I’m taking a lengthy sabbatical from attending Church services,, is because my fellow Christians seem to have forgotten that their number one job should be as stewards of God’s world. There seems to be this smug attitude prevalent among many of them, of never mind the world as I’m going to heaven one day, and never mind the people left behind to clear up my trash. Maybe I’m being unfair, but I feel closer to God walking in the countryside, gardening, or talking to people I encounter in the street, some of them lonely and desperate for conversation.

    All best wishes,
    Sarah
