Christian Responses
Thomas Ackerman
From the Book of Job, Chapter 38:1, 3337:
1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said:
33Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God's dominion over the earth?
34Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water?
35Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? Do they report to you, "Here we are?"
36Who endowed the heart with wisdom or gave understanding to the mind?
37Who has the wisdom to count the clouds? Who can tip over the water jars of the heavens
when the dust becomes hard and the clods of earth stick together?
The era of procrastination, of half measures, of soothing and baffling
expedients, of delays, is coming to its close. In its place we are entering
a period of consequences --Winston Churchill, 1936.
In the last twenty years, the science of
greenhouse gases and global warming
has moved from the often stuffy pages
of academic journals to the front pages of
newspapers and even to the movie theater.
