Four more Nails in the Coffin of Climate Change

More good news. The fight for truthful scientific research has gained some more ground.

It's interesting how polarized (no pun intended) the arguments are, even among some with whom, on other issues, one might agree. Obviously, there has been something increasingly odd, even alarming, about the climate and weather for the last nearly 30 years. Some put this down to global warming, others to global cooling. But I remember how, in the UK, 27 years ago, a new Christian magazine came out, called Prophecy Today (now called Sword Magazine) which clearly showed, through its solid biblical teaching and prophetic message, that the nations are increasingly under God's judgment, and that the abberant weather events were the signs thereof, pointing towards the return of Jesus Christ, and that it was urgent that people turn away from their own ways, to God.

It was only around 20 years ago that global warming began to be discussed and it is indicative of how successful the mainstream media's propaganda has been when one thinks of how normal most people now think it is to buy those ugly energy-saving light bulbs and think about trying to reduce their carbon footprint. I have also got so used to hearing about it all, that the message about God's judgment rather slipped into the background.
How clever of the enemy to bring out such a scientific-sounding argument to counteract the biblical warnings that Christians were publishing. Naturally, most people would believe the scientists, with their reasonable message and apparently proven hypotheses: The Tree of Knowledge triumphs again over the Tree of Life.
Things didn't look quite so good for the global warming lobby when the news broke about Climategate in November 2009, that scientists had been caught fiddling the data. Yet governments continued to plug the old line, especially in the UK, where it had been the policy since Margaret Thatcher's government (the former Prime Minister has a BSc in chemistry)  to increase the UK's scientific influence politically.
Now it seems that the lid of the climate coffin has had even more nails hammered into it.

Climate has always changed. This is to be expected. But weather seems to be getting more extreme everywhere, whether it's droughts causing harvest failure or catastrophic rainfall causing flooding... Maybe we should stop putting our trust in scientists, who are, after all only human and apt to moral failure, and put our trust in the God who created the universe and earth we live on.

'The earth is the Lord's and everything in it.' (Ps 24:1)
 '... to the LORD your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is
 in it.' (Deut. 10:14)
 'Who has a claim against me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to me.' (Job 41:11)

'If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.'
(2 Chron. 7:14)

Oak Park Gardener Charges Dropped

Here's some good news! All charges against Julie Bass, from Michigan, for growing vegetables in her front garden have been dropped. She says that the attention drawn by her case in the alternative media was what gave her the breakthrough.  See link.

Woman faces 93 days in jail because she grows vegetables in her front garden.

This really took my breath away. Another 'job's-worth' busybody wasting tax payers' money by persecuting a perfectly sensible person for growing vegetables in her own front garden. Julie Bass has had the brilliant idea of using the space in the front of her house to grow vegetables. This not only sets an excellent example to anyone who walks past; it teaches the neighbourhood children the value of growing your own, plus it cuts back on electricity - as she doesn't have to mow the lawn. Why the City of Oak Park wouldn't see this as something laudable, and even encourage other residents to do the same thing, I can't think. After all, in these days of financial crisis, especially in America, one would think that any way of saving money, getting exercise and fresh air, plus providing a source of organic fresh vegetables would be praised. By growing her own, Ms Bass saves car journeys as well. She doesn't have to shop for fresh produce. And, of course, global climate change being the new 'Public Enemy #1', one would think that city councillors would relish the sight of residents reducing their carbon footprint by cutting back on fuel bills.

The bigger issue of course, is the freedom of the individual. Surely, if the land belongs to the Bass family, then they ought to be able to do what they like with it. Or is the City of Oak Park falling foul of communitarian philosophy, where the rights of the individual are now subservient to the rights of the community?
By the way, since when did 'suitable' mean 'common'?  Doesn't the City of Oak Park know how to use a dictionary correctly?  Since when were they given the right to re-define adjectives to their own advantage, and by whom? And they're going to shut Ms Bass away for 93 days? RIDICULOUS. Have they nothing better to do with their time?
 It appears as if they're going to shoot themselves in the foot with this one.
Shame on them.
