Global Warming Hysteria and Evolutionary Thinking

Evolutionary thinking makes people do stupid things. That's right, I said it! Many supporters of evolution are ignorant of the flaws in evolutionary sciences — and I believe many are willingly so, since they refuse to examine evidence that challenges their paradigm.

Many scientists believe that global warming (or "global climate change") is a fraud and dare to doubt the "consensus". For example, this NASA scientist believes that it is nonsense. (If he would examine his assumption about an ancient Earth, he would see that the same kinds of assumptions, politics, grant money, bad science and circular reasoning that bolster global warming also form the "billions of years" age of the earth that he believes.) There are some scientists that believe global warming might be real, but not over the last fifteen years and it is not anthropogenic. It's the wild-eyed screamers that are causing harm, and their global warming beliefs are based on evolutionary assumptions.
What would you think if scientists were to suggest that large tracts of uncultivated land, which could be used to grow crops to feed hungry people, should be left untouched? And how would you react if their reason for leaving this potential farmland unused was to combat climate change? 
Believe it or not, that is precisely the scenario discussed in a recent issue of the journal Nature. Since 1990, about 77 million acres of cropland have remained uncultivated in Eastern Europe. Given the millions of hungry and undernourished people in the world, one would think that an intentional refusal to cultivate such land would be absolutely out of the question. However, if this land were put to the plow, some worry that the carbon released into the atmosphere as a result would contribute to global warming, and one scientist has even suggested that about two-thirds of this land should remain uncultivated indefinitely.
