Observable science & climate change

God has promised that seasons will continue until Judgment Day, the day Jesus returns. Genesis 8:22 says, “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”  With the dire predictions of calamity we hear in the news, it is important to emphasize what is observable. Rather than cause for alarm, these scientific observations fit a biblical model of a planet designed to support life.

First, vegetation on Earth is greening, not browning, and increasing according to NASA. They estimate vegetation is up 50% in recent decades, compare to less than 4% browning or loss of vegetation. This is due to modest warming and increased CO2, which helps plants grow.

Second, there has been no significant increase in hurricanes according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The intensity of these storms has seen a slight 1% increase in over the last decades. For more evidence of the stability of life along the coasts, observe the new construction of apartments and other structures along America’s coastline.

Third, animal extinction is not the catastrophe that was predicted due to a changing climate. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has a Red List of Threatened Species. Even though they predicted 30,000 species would be lost due to climate change, the observations of animal life has revealed far fewer. Only 2 extinctions are being recorded per year.
