Say, What’s The Conservative Christian Case For Climate Change Action?

Another day, another person attempting to give us the “moral” case for Believing in Hotcoldwetdry and Doing Something

The Conservative Christian Case for Climate Change Action

….

Reagan told us that the phrase came from a Puritan leader, John Winthrop, who quoted Jesus as his boat was nearing the New World: “We shall be as a city upon a hill, the eyes of all people are upon us.” In what has become a season of vastly different visions for American greatness, these words deserve reconsideration today.

Winthrop’s vision demanded a profound sense of moral duty and obligation. It’s time to heed this call and live up to our responsibilities, to move into a sustainable future for America’s kids and all God’s children. To do so, we need to reckon with the driving force of the U.S. economy for the past century: fossil fuels.

To be “pro-life” is to care deeply about the great moral challenge of climate change, as climate disruptions impact each child of God in every nation. No one is left out. Food and water scarcity are made worse across the developing world. Sea-level rise, increased asthma, and disease carrying insects across the U.S. are just a few of the other climate-related impacts.

Here’s the first problem: the writer, Rev. Mitchell C. Hescox, fails to provide proof that Mankind is mostly/solely responsible for the current Holocene warm period. Without proof, there is no “moral” reason to take action. Of course, Hescox is part of groups that may have some conservative leanings, such as being pro-life, they also push leftist stuff, like ‘climate change’, social justice, are pro-illegal alien, some are pro-gay marriage, etc.

The good news is that overcoming climate change presents us with a tremendous opportunity to create a better world. In order to realize it, we must end the partisanship and dump the denial. The scientific debate about climate change is over. We might not know all the particulars about how quickly the oceans will rise, but the causation is clear. One only has to open a window to know that our environment has changed.

But, that provides no scientific proof of causation. If I look at my window and see the sun rising later and later and setting earlier and earlier, is that proof of anthropogenic climate change?

To overcome climate change and be that shining city on a hill, each of us must take responsibility for our energy use. Through public policies, we must act to price carbon and address the market’s failure to count all costs, and we must invest in research and development to create sustainable progress powered by ever-improving clean technology.

More government, more taxation, more control of people’s lives. How is that moral? Especially when Warmists cannot even prove their assertion of AGW?

Oh, and he’s apparently super thrilled with fascist Warmist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

    Teach when 97% of scientists who publish in per reviewed publications say it IS AGW, maybe the proof is on the climate truthers to say it is not AGW
    Maybe when pretty much everyone from the Pope to the Chief Oceanographer of the US Navy says AGW maybe Teach should be the one that proves it isn’t by telling us what IS causing the temps to go up.
    Scientists have known for over 120 years that CO2 absorbs and heats up when exposed to infrared wavelength radiation. Margaret Thatcher was the first to warn us of this dangerin the mid 1980s, not Obama

  2. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    If the democrats can’t stop man made voter fraud how can they stop AGW?

  3. Liam Thomas says:

    Again John your wrong Temps have not gone up I just posted a PEER REVIEWED ARTICLE pointing to the PAUSE….something that happens in 30-35 year cycles.

    Its incumbent upon the AGW crowd to prove that the clear cutting of a million square miles of rainforest and national forests is not allowing the earth to properly sink co2 which is why we are seeing co2 rising faster.

    John I would ask you a simple question….what has changed in the last 40 years that would cause co2 to suddenly rise at a much steeper rate then the previous 100 years?

  4. Liam Thomas says:

    Teach when 97% of scientists who publish in per reviewed publications say it IS AGW,

    When 97 percent of the publications are owned by AGW scientists and boarded by them and the publications are threatened if they let anti-AGW papers be published…..when anyone who would dare to even try to write such a paper risks his career then its easy to see why you have 97 percent of scientits agreeing to your statement.

    This is akin to the 16th century and anyone who even spoke of witchcraft was burned at the stake…..How many people do you think waltzed around the city square claiming to be a witch or how many do you think would have printed their profession in a paper when the risks to them were so enormous.

    YOU CANT GET AN ANTI-AGW paper printed in any publication anymore so that the narrative can continue to be that 97 percent agree…..

    BULL>>>>>>SHEET……….I know many, many PHD’s in fields that would matter who claim no such thing privately….In public they smile and nod.

  5. Teach when 97% of scientists who publish in per reviewed publications say it IS AGW

    Nice try, John. Every single time you Cultists trot that out you fail to realize that the number is actually about 30% of papers.

    Have you given up all use of fossil fuels and gone carbon neutral in your own life, John?

    Do you think that it’s been “proven” that cigarette smoking causes cancer and COPD? What’s the proof?

    Many smokers don’t get cancer or COPD. Many non-smokers get cancer and COPD.

    Yet we’ve restricted the freedoms of smokers of all ages, cigarette manufacturers and sellers and exacted onerous taxes on a legal product and its users based on less than rock solid “proof”.

    Your understanding of science in rudimentary at best, flat wrong at worst. In fact, scientific theories are rarely “proven”. Rather, evidence consistent with the theory accumulates to the point that only the most hard-headed deny truth of the theory. That said, a single scientific finding can invalidate or falsify a theory.

  7. Jeffery says:

    Teach: Can you describe what would satisfy your desire for “proof”?

    The Earth is warming steadily (undeniable) as the CO2 increases (undeniable).

    The CO2 comes from fossil fuel burning (undeniable).

    Atmospheric CO2 absorbs infrared wavelengths emitted by the Earth (undeniable).

    If the heat content of the ocean, land and atmosphere WASN’T increasing, that would be surprising.

    Do you know of any reliable evidence that refutes the theory of AGW?

    If not, what evidence would persuade you that CO2 from fossil fuel burning is causing the current period of rapid warming?

  8. Liam Thomas says:

    @Jeffery

    Cigarette smoking is not a national security issue.

    Powering everything that runs this country ******IS*********

    And that would include the military which would ground to a halt and another 30 Million americans would be without jobs…..

    But of course the left can fix it….Just shut down Exxon and Conoco and all coal and natural gas plants in america….no more fossil fuels….no more cars and trucks and planes…….

    If its such a dire emergency then shut em down……and lets watch what happens when Poor ole Jeffery cant post on the internet anymore because no one can make anything because they cant pay enough hampsters to turn the wheel…….When Jeffery is down at the local market killing his neighbors to feed his family cause the farmers are reduced to using OXEN to plow and harvest……

    Lets fix it Jeffery….lets get er dun…..

    COME ON THE WORLD IS DYING….ITS A CATASTROPHE….YOU MUST ACT NOW…NOW>>>>NOW……..

    FIX IT………NOW…..

  9. Jeffery says:

    Our military will survive a graduated tax on carbon pollution.

  10. Liam Thomas says:

    A TAX

    IS GOING TO SOLVE THIS CATASTROPHIC GLOBAL WARMING?

    See this is why no one takes you people seriously….. A TAX is your solution to C A T A S T R O P H I C Global warming.

  11. Jeffery says:

    Laim,

    Actually, A LOT OF smart P E O P L E already take global warming seriously.

    OUR miliTARY IS already making CHANGES in their O P E R A T I O N S TO REduce impacts of G L O B A L Warming

    OUR miliTARY IS already making CHANGES in their O P E R A T I O N S TO REduce impacts of G L O B A L Warming

    –Another “factoid” update from the fraudulent g.i. jeffy

  13. Liam Thomas says:

    OUR miliTARY IS already making CHANGES in their O P E R A T I O N S TO REduce impacts of G L O B A L Warming

    It is so funny how you turned to the military when I asked you how your going to fix this and you said a TAX and now its about the military making changes? With still no solutions but a TAX.

    Okay what changes are they making that will END CO2 and AGW???

    ACCORDING to you and your AGW cronies……THIS GLOBAL WARMING IS C A T A S T R O P H I C. So How is the military making some changes and a TAX going to solve CATASTROPHIC GLOBAL WARMING….

    See once again you have no answers other then Co2 is rising, the planet is heating were all gonna die.
