Why is the Earth Warming So Much?
I’ve explained before that the globe is definitely getting hotter and the temperature is rising at an accelerating rate. The journal Science now updates the famous “hockey stick” graph with evidence from many “indirect temperature indicators — such as pollen and shells from marine organisms.”
Climate science deniers enjoy trying to undermine graphs like this. Sometimes they claim the warming isn’t unprecedented and other times they claim the climate is actually cooling. I’ll let them sort this apparent contradiction out for themselves, but what really demonstrates the evil trickery of climate scientists is not the direction or rate of warming at all. Look at the x-axis: the date goes back 11,500 years! We all know that the Earth is only 6,000 years old so something isn’t right. So allow me to modestly challenge the expertise of the study’s researchers and the editors of Science who probably know less than I do about these fields.
History and modern polling have all shown that the world is becoming less religious. It also just so happens that shortly after Darwin published On the Origin of Species and evolution became accepted by mainstream science, one of the most popular reasons for theistic belief (the argument from design) crumbled. Forget the industrial revolution; it JUST SO HAPPENS that we see the spike in temperature precisely during the neo-Darwinian synthesis in the early 20th century.
Isn’t it more likely that the earth is heating due to advancing hell-fire rather than a common innocuous gas like carbon dioxide? The correlation of falling religiosity and rising world temperature is obvious.
I’d be curious for “scientists” to study that indirect temperature indicator.
