Global warming not as important as within

Dear editor,

Global warming is considered to be the number one problem facing mankind. I believe it is certainly a problem but not number one.

God flooded the world with water in the days of Noah. Then God sent a mighty rushing wind to dry up the waters. God froze the waters “ice is dry until melted.” Scientists agree that “water vapour” is the main contributor to the greenhouse effect, not CO2 gases. In brief, ever since the ice age, after the flood, the ice has been melting. As ice melts from the surface, the earth gradually warms up, increasing water vapour, trapping it in the atmosphere generating more heat. The changes are gradual yet substantial over time. As ice evaporates the earth will become drier with extreme temperatures.

Reducing CO2 is only a small part of the problem and not worth all the money and hype that is being wasted upon it. We should reduce carbon gases in large cities where people are having trouble breathing; but no matter what man does the earth will get warmer. This earth will be destroyed again not with a flood but with fire. “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.” 2 Peter 3:10

We will see an increase in famines, droughts, tidal waves, earthquakes, wars, etc. Before the earth becomes uninhabitable, Jesus has promised to take “those that love him” to a better place. “But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.” 2 Peter 3:13

So instead of focusing on the surface of the earth man should turn his attention to the state of his heart and the salvation of his soul. We should spend more money and resources on helping the poor and reaching the lost. “Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought we to be …” 2 Peter 3:11
