"WASHINGTON - Signals that humans are the main factor behind recent global warming are stronger than ever, an authoritative global scientific report will warn when it is released next week.
The draft being released next week is actually the first of four chapters by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Andrew Weaver, a Canadian climate scientist and chapter co-author, went even further: “This isn’t a smoking gun; climate is a battalion of intergalactic smoking missiles.”
The first chapter, written by more than 600 scientists and reviewed by another 600 experts and edited by bureaucrats from 154 countries, includes 'a significantly expanded discussion of observation on the climate,' said co-chair Susan Solomon, a senior scientist for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
That report will feature an 'explosion of new data' on observations of current global warming, Solomon said."At some point in the future the next generation will wonder what took so long for America to move from a consumption energy policy to one of sustainability. I'd hate to be the one who complains that I just didn't read the evidence because the report wasn't in Genesis or Ellen White or my copy of Reader's Digest.
Restoring Eden (Christians for Environmental Stewardship) is a great place to learn more from a biblical perspective about how to really care about creation.
