James Hansen testified about the dangers of global warming when he was an NASA scientist in 1988. The New York Times headline: "Global Warming Has Begun, Expert Tells Senate."
Since then, the eco-woke among us have created more than enough deadlines to try to force change. In 1990, as George Marshall wrote in his book "Don't Even Think About It," the magazine Ecologist published a book called "5,000 Days to Save the Planet." About 5,000 days later, the Institute for Public Policy Research declared that there were "Ten Years to Save the Planet." In 2008, he wrote, the New Economics Foundation said it was "100 Months to Save the World."

Revelation 11:18b "...bring to ruin those ruining the earth."  If it wasn't for Jehovah's DIVINE intervention, our earthly home would be doomed.

Praise Jah!!!! ❤️

Some people put this behind in their minds and think, no global warming or destruction of the forests, and many other things that crawl and fly in the woodlands of the world. But people must wake up!  It's later then they think.  And as Jehovah's Witnesses, we may have our own articles, but a lot of that information comes from other sources, sources that some people still trust and not fake news.  Our source is the Bible, because it foretold of people who would bring to ruin the earth, and God himself in his own time, will bring them to ruin as well.  The RUIN in the scriptures relates to destruction.

This should come as no surprise.

 

We are losing the war on:

  • Immorality
  • Violence
  • Health
  • Security
  • Pestilence
  • Gender identity
  • Love of God

Why should the War on Climate Change be any different.

 

Man will not win any of these wars on his own ... Only Jehovah has the answer

We, on the other hand, need to be careful not to be drawn onto the political side of this argument. I don't really think anybody really denies that man, particularly with the lifestyle predominant in the West, is "ruining the Earth".

 

However, if you look at where this entire political argument supported by "Fridays for future" protests and the like is coming from, it is about taxing CO2 emissions in the end. So consumers are coerced into paying say 10% more taxes that the government can spend on a shopping spree, supporting anything but development of green technologies. For example, our "eco-tax" that's been on fuel for over ten years in Germany is predominantly spent on old age pensions.

 

Speaking of green technologies, there is a huge debate going on about what actually constitutes pollution and what is overblown propaganda. As an example, everyone is talking about electric cars with lithium batteries instead of diesel cars. The truth is, any modern diesel with a combustion engine is more ecological than an electric car since an electric car battery has the carbon footprint of a diesel at a 100 thousand miles. The mining of lithium also causes massive ecological damage in the mining regions. Some scientists say the emissions from diesel fuel are a joke when comparing it to the pollution from tire adhesion.

 

So yes, this system is taking a toll on the planet but we really need to be careful what we say. I'm saying this because in the past weeks I've seen too many brothers and sisters take sides on the political issues, supporting development of supposed "green technologies" financed through carbon taxes, higher taxes on this and that, propagating eating less meat, what have you.

 

So it's best to stick to things we know, like

- too much plastic in the oceans killing ocean life

- chemicals being pumped into water in Asian countries, oil spills

- long-term dangers of radiation from nuclear power plant disasters

- generally the influence of man-made system on the climate
