Global Warming Vs. Science

Written by Drew on February 5th, 2007

Everyone should read Dr. Timothy Ball’s column in the Canada Free Press. In it he chronicles how intimidation and funding are behind the furor over Global Warming in this country. Science has been raped by politics, according to Dr. Ball. It would be easy to discount him, if he weren’t the first Canadian Ph.D. in Climatology with a degree from the University of London, England, and a professor of Climatology at the University of Winnipeg for 32 years.

Science has always been held in high esteem in this country. Americans have always treated their researchers as honest truth-seekers who were looking to solve the problems plaguing the human condition. The problem is, scientists have to eat. And special-interest groups and governments are usually the only source of funding. Therefore, conventional wisdom dictates science. If the world is looking for Global Warming, that’s all it’s going to fund. If it’s looking for the Easter Bunny, it may never find it, but there will be hundreds of paid scientists examining easter egg baskets and analyzing the structures of easter egg hunts.

Is it any wonder that the Intelligent Design Movement is struggling for an equal voice? Evolution was accepted as law, long before it was ever tested in the lab. While adequate proof has been found for evolution within species, scientists still have not found evidence proving that mutations cause plants and animals to leap from one kind to another. Because of my faith in God’s Word, I know they never will.

Independent thinkers are always mocked, whether they are researchers like Timothy Ball in the scientific community, or reformers like Martin Luther in the religious community. Still, God asks us to lean on him (Prov. 3:5). Devotion to the truth always cuts against the grain.

Update
What Timothy Bell supplied on the scientific side of this issue, George Will supplies on the political side in his Newsweek column, “Inconvenient Kyoto Truths.” Another must read on Global Warming…er, excuse me, “climate change.”

Another theory: Cosmic rays blamed for climate change.
