Dr. E. Calvin Beisner is the founder and national spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. The Cornwall Alliance is a coalition of clergy, theologians, religious leaders, scientists, academics, and policy experts committed to bringing a balanced biblical view of stewardship to the critical issues of environment and development. He has published over 10 books and written hundreds of articles.

True or false: Storms such as the one that recently dumped significant amounts of snow on a large portion of the eastern U.S. as well as super-storm Sandy were historically unprecedented. The answer: False.

While you might be tempted to view recent storms as having been fueled, at least in part, by global warming; caution must be taken. This is because Dr. Beisner noted that there is nothing historically unprecedented about either the rate or the magnitude of any global warming that’s taken place in the last 150 years. The fear that’s being propagated now is only due to significant warming that occurred from about 1980 to 1997, a period of about 17 years. Since 1997 we’ve had 16 straight years of no statistically significant global warming. In spite of the fact that these two periods are nearly identical n terms of time, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (the alleged “main ingredient” of global warming) has continued to rise even faster than it did during the 17 year period of warming. This proves that global warming and climate change are not a threat but merely part of a natural cycle.

It’s unfortunate that President Obama added to the pool of false information recently when he mentioned global climate change in his inaugural address and Al Gore resurfaced recently when he commented on coal pollution. Dr. Beisner analyzes those remarks and brings a balanced, biblical perspective to this controversial issue.
