It's an established fact that anti-creationists want to hobble biblical creationists, but those owlhoots haven't been quite as aggressive in their efforts to silence scientific dissent as anthropogenic climate change activists in America. Back in 2007, meteorologist Heidi Cullen of "The Weather Channel" wanted meteorologists who deny global warming to get their certifications removed. Since the global warming pseudoscience got bucked off the bronco, it's now called climate change.

Christians should oppose the concept of punishing climate skeptics. One simple reason is something that non-Christians should be able to agree with us about: freedom of speech. Also, science is supposed to thrive on challenge. Evolution and climate change do not need to be protected from examination, except when secularists have a vested interest and the Ministry of Truth does not want those pseudosciences scrutinized.
Yes, I did bring evolution into the picture. Evolutionary thinking is a big part of the global climate change scenario (even though they ignore scientific data of global warming and cooling over periods of recorded history). Some radical environmentalists want a large percentage of humans exterminated. After all, Mother Earth is more important than people, and they believe there is no God who created us in his image, and who put Earth where it is for a reason. All those dead people...can you imagine the stink? And with the gasses emitted, won't that be worse than the carbon dioxide that we emit right now? Yes, carbon dioxide, the stuff that all those plants use for survival, and they say "much obliged" and give us oxygen that we need.
Global climate change alarmists deny the sovereignty of God and his creative power. Their faith is in evolution and naturalism, not the Creator — and certainly not Jesus Christ, our Redeemer.
What got me all het up on this topic is a podcast from Janet Mefferd. To hear it, click here and head for the 25 minute 10 second mark for a fascinating interview with Cal Beisner. You can listen free online, and you can download it after you sign up for the free service (I've done this, and they have not bothered me at all.) Remember who made you, and where you need to keep your faith.
Hype over global climate change has political expediency and evolutionary implications. Climate change skeptics may be going to jail, and Christians need to stand up against this.
