Religious Leaders To Discuss “Climate Change” In Raleigh

Of all the things they should be concerned with, such as gay marriage, diminishing and destruction of moral values, kids raised with no fathers, out of wedlock births, etc, this is what they care about

(Raleigh N&O) Although churches are not generally known for discussing melting polar ice caps from the pulpit, the North Carolina Religious Coalition on Creation Care will sponsor its first state conference on climate change Monday.

Top regional and local religious leaders, medical professionals and scientists will explain climate change and address how residents can help.

The conference will take place at the Church of the Good Shepherd at 125 Hillsborough St., in downtown Raleigh.

“Climate change will undermine that which we have all strived to achieve, especially a better life for our sons and daughters,” said conference coordinator Don Addu of Durham.

“It is our duty to not turn a blind eye to the mounting threat before us, but instead face it directly and band together as a community and as a state to ensure a stable climate for generations to come,” he said.

Interesting. Humanity tends to do much better during warm periods than cool periods. Mankind did pretty darned well during the previous two warm periods, the Medieval Warm Period and Roman Warm Period, both of which were warmer than today.

“Climate change is a religious issue, as well as an environmental one,” said Dr. Stephen Jurovics, a member of North Carolina’s Interfaith Power and Light’s executive committee and a former EPA environmental engineer.

Well, yeah, it is kinda religious issue, because the Believers act in the manner of religious cultists as dogmatic and insane as the Westboro Baptist Church and ISIS.

    There is no evidence that the so-called Medieval Warm Period and the mythological Roman Warm Period were even as warm as now.

    The only time in the Holocene possibly as warm as now was during the early Holocene.

  2. The IPCC sure believed in the MWP until it became inconvenient.

    Paul Samuelson claims Keynes once said, “Well when events change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?”

    In science you can’t stop looking once you get the answer you want. It’s clear now that the so-called Medieval Warm Period was regional and was a mere bump in the steady decrease from some 5000 years ago.

    You should try a bit harder to keep up with the scientific literature. I understand that you think modern climate scientists are all lying scoundrels serving the satanic leftists, but humor us with your evidence that the it was warmer during the MWP than now.

    Are you really worried that climate scientists are going to behead you as would ISIS? Really?

    The global warming evidence is so compelling that even conservative religious leaders are recognizing it.

    It will soon be down to you, Jim Inhofe, the odious jimhoft, Watts and Load Monckton left to defend the coal and oil interests. I suspect the energy companies will admit the truth before you will.

    Well, that’s strange, because you folks have said the science is settled, and warming is mostly/solely the fault of mankind. Now you’re saying we have to keep looking. Are you now willing to entertain alternate ideas?

    Are you really worried that climate scientists are going to behead you as would ISIS? Really?

    Interesting strawman. Where did I write my concern in that manner?

    As for coal and gas, you haven’t paid attention to what I’ve written numerous times. Oh, and since you hate them, have you stopped using fossil fueled travel yet? If not, you must be a gas company lover.

    September was the warmest September ever recorded
    2014 is still on track to be warmer than any other year on record
    Some call this a “pause”

  7. John says:

    Teach there has never been evidence that I have seen that universally mankind did better during those times
    Maybe those in the northern zones did maybe those in the southern didn’t
    In any case if you do you use that logic would you trade a nicer Greenland for a flooded Florida ?
    Mangoes in Maine for malaria in NC?

  8. Jeffery says:

    “… Believers act in the manner of religious cultists as dogmatic and insane as … ISIS.”

    You compare climate scientists to ISIS. What insane acts of ISIS are you talking about?

    “… you folks have said the science is settled, and warming is mostly/solely the fault of mankind.”

    True. There is little scientific doubt that warming results mostly/solely from humans burning fossil fuels. Other causes have been examined (and continue to be) and discarded for lack of evidence. There’s no evidence to support a warming Sun, cosmic rays, fewer clouds, increased albedo or volcanism. A sustained warming of what you describe as a miniscule 1.4F (shame on you for misleading you readers) doesn’t happen by “natural variability” – there has to be a cause. This “miniscule” 1.4F brings us to the warmest temperature during the entire Holocene – and it will continue to warm another 1.4F at least.
