Global warming is the myth that launched a thousand half-baked unscientific schemes. Perhaps none of them is as crazy as geoengineering.
In USA Today, there is a serious discussion of ideas to “save the planet” that could very well lead to destroying it instead. The title of this piece is “Can geoengineering put the freeze on global warming?”
Some like to paint God as a ruthless despot, vengeful and cruel, who heedlessly judges mankind for disobeying him. On the contrary, God has done everything possible to rescue us! Despite that, the planet itself has become man’s focus and the desperation to protect it from a perceived threat that exists mostly in the imaginations of humanists has taken centre stage.
That in turn is leading to the situation where man himself, unaided, could bring upon us all the disasters familiar to us in the Book of Revelation (for example). Those who are inclined to blame God for causing the end of the world should recognise that we are well able to do it to ourselves.
As I read the article linked above, I cringe at these scientists’ foolishness and conceit. Not only do they swallow the “global warming” myth hook line and sinker, but they are now considering some insane tinkering with nature as a result.
“Seeding the oceans with iron filings” might result in (red) plankton growth, but as they so blithely point out “it might kill the fish”. (duh – you think?) It might also result in “the seas turning to blood”, see Rev 16:3.
Firing about 7 million tons of sulfur into the stratosphere every year for 30 years “would help stabilize global warming’s rise, National Center for Atmospheric Research climate scientist Tom Wigley estimated in a much-debated 2006 Science journal report.”
It could also create the “sackcloth” atmosphere that dims the sun, moon and stars, the droughts and famines that devastate the earth in the last days, and the acid rain that kills the vegetation. (See Rev 6:12-13; Rev 8:7 and Rev 8:10-11 to mention a few).
It does seem as if a corporate insanity will grip mankind, especially with inspiration and input from the devil incarnate when he arrives for his brief rule on earth. Judgement is indeed God’s prerogative, and he WILL act against “those who destroy the earth” but let’s not forget that man’s worst enemy is his own pride.
And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying:
“We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
The one who is and who was and who is to come,
Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.
The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,
And those who fear Your name, small and great,
And should destroy those who destroy the earth .”
