Many people today, especially the young, are making some terrible long-term decisions, and it’s because they assume that the “experts” are right when it comes to catastrophic man-made global warming. They buy the notion that we only have 12 years of life left on earth:
•Many of them are not investing for their future. Why should they, if they have no future?
•Many are experiencing depression because of climate change.
•Many are choosing to not have children, so they can save the planet. And they’ll miss out on those experiences, as well as the joys of one day being a grandparent.
Last week, Marketwatch.com (5/23/19) published an article entitled, “Young People Blame Climate Change for Their Small 401(K) Balances.” They write, “Some 88% of millennials—a higher percentage than any other age group—accept that climate change is happening, and 69% say it will impact them in their lifetimes. Engulfed in a constant barrage of depressing news stories, many young people are skeptical about saving for an uncertain future.” The article notes that this bad news also negatively impacts their mental health.
Why not….if the “experts” are right? The Guardian.com reported last year (10/8/18): “We Have 12 Years To Limit Climate Change Catastrophe, Warns UN: Urgent changes needed to cut risk of extreme heat, drought, floods and poverty, says IPCC.”
The article notes the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns of food scarcity, droughts, floods, rising seas impacting 10 million people worldwide, and an increase in poverty—unless we get climate change under control.
Recently, Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg made the cover of TIME (5/27/19) over this issue. She is “on strike for the planet”—until more governments take climate change more seriously.
But the Bible tells us: “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him” (Proverbs 18:17). Sometimes the “experts” get it wrong. Dr. D. James Kennedy reminded us that the experts say everything. We must choose our experts wisely.
One geoscientist who does not agree with the climate change alarmists is author Greg Wrightstone. He says, “What they’re predicting and what’s actually happening are 180 degrees opposite.” Wrightstone has 35 years of experience of studying the earth as a geologist. He’s written the book, Inconvenient Facts: The Science that Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know. Wrightstone is also an expert with the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation.
