PERHAPS it is my contrarian nature, or maybe it is a Sunday School belief that man cannot destroy what man has not created.
But for whatever reason, I reject the whole concept of man-made global warming.
The same modern scholars who would mock the ancients for blaming the behavior of man for natural catastrophes are now telling me that driving an automobile that gets less than 20 miles a gallon will turn the world into a blazing hell on Earth.
In November 2007, John Brignell, a British engineering professor, made a list of 600 different things that “studies” said global warming would cause.
It included trees in Antarctica (which is now covered with 7.2 million cubic miles of ice).
Predictions of other changes caused by manmade global warming included an increase in avalanches and a decrease in avalanches, fewer bananas and more bananas, more salt in the Atlantic and less salt in the Atlantic, tectonic plate movement, no more White Christmases and more blizzards — and my favorite, more floods and more droughts.
