Letters to the Editor: Global Warming

Editor:

Some scientists agree that inaccurate information repeated often enough will convince you it is true. They also agree that some of the information given about global warming is misleading.

I believe that a good example of this repeated inaccurate information is global warming is caused by man-made carbon dioxide. This repeated statement ignores any facts that disprove it, even from the Environmental Protection Agency.

In 2004, the EPA's report stated that methane gas is 20 times more effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. The EPA's breakdown of kilotons of methane emissions in the U.S. for 2004 is as follows: urban landfills 6,709, natural gas systems 5,658, animal flatulence 5,363, coal mining 2,682, animal manure management 1,875, urban wastewater treatment 1,758, petroleum systems 1,222, and all others 1,245.

Why are these statistics ignored? If this was true in 2004, it is just as true today. I believe taxing urban landfills, natural gas systems and animal flatulence etc. doesn't raise enough taxes to satisfy politicians. Politicians know that if they can convince you that you are causing global warming, you will agree to be taxed for it.

Some scientists also agree that God created a perfect world for man to live on. Can't they also trust God to sustain His own sovereign creation? God created the salty ocean water for a purpose: to cleanse the polluted river water entering into it. God also created changing weather for the purpose of providing rain and sunshine on the earth to provide food to sustain man. God also created changing climate for a purpose, and man should not be interfering in God's sovereign and perfect creation. All things were created by God. (Rev. 4:11)
