Are You Sure?
I found the movie An Inconvenient Truth to be very interesting. The movie really makes you think about the world and what we have done to it. I think that what we as humans, have done to the earth is very amazing yet devastating at the same time. All the scientists are saying that we are in the hottest time that the world has ever experienced and yet I wonder, “how do you know?” I just do not understand how scientists know that it is so hot now and so much hotter than it has ever been.
I really don’t understand how they can say that it is the hottest it has ever been on the earth because they don’t know how hot it was three ice ages ago. They have equipment that they might think can know what the temperature was back then, but they have no idea. Their equipment, math, ideas may all be wrong, and they have know way to tell if they are wrong or right. No one was alive back then, so there are no records of the temperature or what was happening or if it was hot or cold. They have nothing, no idea.
I think that if the world was the hottest it has ever been and that it was going to melt all the ice, kill polar bears and slowly but surely destroy the earth then God would do something about it. I do not think that God would let the earth get destroyed by us humans; I think that he would put a stop to global warming in a heartbeat. We don’t know if thats how the earth works. This may be how the earth works: it may get really hot, then we have an ice age and it gets hot again, and it just cycles through. We don’t know. Are we sure of any of our studies?
