JD: May I ask you the bottom line question is either of these global warming or climate change taking place today?
DD: Well it does appear Jimmy that we are on the front end of a slight warming of the earth’s surface. We do have a couple of decades now of this kind of data. But the thing is the world’s climate is always making adjustments, some decades a little warmer and some decades a little cooler. There are a lot of variables involved and the changes are always going on.
We do know also that in the post flood centuries there was an ice age on the earth and the temperature dropped lets say a half dozen degrees and the earth was cooler. Today again the temperature seems to be warming up just a degree or so. In fact Jimmy this is what is so amazing, when you have this kind of population on the earth there’s an amazing stability of the earth’s climate the temperature only changes by a degree or two. It just shows that when God set up this world He built in stability anticipating the world’s population. It’s just surprising how constant the temperature is over the world.
JD: People keep making the statement that we’re heading towards a catastrophic event. Is that a possibility?
DD: Well no it’s not. You know Scripture gives us the promise the seasons will follow during this whole age that we live in. Certainly man kind though we’re not neutral we do add to the system but there are so many variables. The sun can either cause a warming or a cooling, so can the oceans. Multiple factors going on but again the integrity of the climate is that this earth system will continue, to study the earth, to manage it. And then that way we don’t trash the place. We don’t ignore even changing climate. We do what we can but not to go overboard. It’s not the end of the world.
JD: Dr. Don DeYoung with his thoughts on global warming and climate change.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Dr. DeYoung, a scientist does believe that global warming and climate change are happening in our world today although its almost unnoticeable. God’s word in Genesis 8:22 tells us that God is in charge. The seasons, heat, cold and even night and day will not cease. Remember God is in control.
