Fifty years ago it was Professor Ehrlich whose his dire warnings about the world’s population explosion filled many with fear.
Then it was the Y2 bug, endangering all world systems dependent on the Internet.
Now it is climate-warming hysteria.
Ehrlich said the world’s population could not continue to increase. It would bring about a food crisis. Life would be unsustainable. But he didn’t reckon on the amazing increase in land under cultivation and improvements in food production. More land is under cultivation for food production than ever before in history.
Others, less prone to the mass hysteria due to the YK2 scam, saw through this scare. They knew that man’s ingenuity would be able to cope with any collapse of the World Wide Web.
But the herd mentality is never far away it seems. But as the Word says, “All we like sheep have gone astray.” But this time it is not a sheep leading the flock astray. It is a schoolgirl, berating the world at the United Nations for its lack of action in dealing with climate change.
The world had better take notice, not for who this lass is, but for what she represents. Well said the prophet Isaiah when he warned his generation of the word of God: “I will give children to be their princes and babes shall rule over them” (Isa 3:4)
Climate change is not a matter of science. It has always been happening. Ultimately, the issue is theological. God has no plan to see His creation reduced to an utter wasteland. The regeneration of the entire cosmos is His plan. He will not let it exhaust all its resources. (Romans 8:17 – 22). Therefore the saints “look for a new heaven and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.” (2 Peter 3:13)
But for unbelievers the future is exceedingly grim
