It seems that some climate change experts are living up to Mark Twain’s tongue-in-cheek admonition: “Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.”
Back in December, world leaders and climate change experts met in Copenhagen to discuss policies to combat Global Warming. Despite the fervor of our leaders, however, the people back home were hearing about “Climate-Gate” and wondering how to pay for higher energy costs that would accompany such legislation; concerns which I addressed in a blog here at Everyday Christian.
In the last couple of days, yet another leading climate scientist has admitted to some “unreliable data” in the Global Warming debate. Isn’t this more evidence that, as thoughtful stewards of our planet, we should look a bit deeper into the motives and research of leading Global Warming alarmists? Shouldn’t we find the truth before we spend further time and our children’s inheritance on a potential hoax? Read the full interview here, and decide for yourself.
In stark contrast to the opening quote, Thomas Jefferson once said: “Enlighten the people, generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like spirits at the dawn of day.”
After all, we know that the truth will set us free, so let us strive to find it in all areas, even the inconvenient ones.
