In 2006 Al Gore starred in a documentary called “An Inconvenient Truth.” In it he made the claim that there is a strong scientific consensus that the earth is warming primarily because of human activity. His argument was that as more humans populate the earth, more carbon dioxide is created in the atmosphere, which results in higher temperatures around the world. The documentary used sensationalized images to create a sense of doom and gloom that gave people a justification for regulating human activity on the Earth. Global warming activists have used this theory to curtail human innovation, placing the environment as a higher priority than the needs of people.

There are many scientific theories surrounding global warming, and scientists around the world are far from reaching a consensus on the issue. The Answers Research Journal published a paper in 2010 that proves this point. It is titled “A Proposed Bible-Science Perspective on Global Warming” and it reveals there are many scholars who disagree with the theory on global warming (https://answersresearchjournal.org/bible-science-global-warming/).

The issues related to global warming are more complicated than is often presented in the media. Instead of reducing the issue to sensationalized images of polar bears floating on icebergs, the discerning reader needs to study the science behind many issues including glaciers, carbon dioxide, climate and temperature. The Christian reader also needs to look to Scripture to make a determination about this issue.
