CGG and Al Gore

In its latest newsletter, CGG’s Richard T. Ritenbaugh actually wrote:

All hail Al Gore, the winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize!

This is the near-unanimous cry of the mainstream media news hawkers this morning. Gore—former U.S. Vice President and darling of liberals, Hollywood, and tree-huggers everywhere—received the Peace Prize for preaching the gospel of manmade climate change around the world and urging radical measures to counteract the “imminent” threat. Supporters here in the U.S. are hoping that this honor will convince Gore to reconsider running for President in 2008…

It appears that the members of the Nobel Committee live in a sealed environment cut off from the real world. There are many real conflicts raging right now over earth’s precious resources. In fact, one can argue that the world’s spotlighted conflict, the Iraq War and its aftermath, is a struggle over Middle East oil, the fuel of the world’s economy. In addition, the migrations of workers from poor to rich countries—for example, Hispanics into America and Muslims into Europe—are related to a lack of resources in their homelands and an abundance of them in the developed nations, and they are creating conflict. Yet, none of these present-day confrontations have been set off by manmade climate change, today’s cause célèbre, so the supposed prevention of hypothetical future conflicts becomes the reason for Gore’s selection. What a peacemaker he might be!

Comments by COGwriter:

I take no position on who should win a prize by worldly men about their ideas of peace. 

However, according to Bible prophecy, global warming will occur as the Bible does show that the earth will become very hot:

Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.  And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory (Revelation 16:8-9).

And while the Bible does not specify that humans have had a specific part in global warming, it does teach that humans will suffer for destroying the earth:

The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,
And those who fear Your name, small and great,
And should destroy those who destroy the earth (Revelation 11:18). 

Bible prophecy also shows that there will be enough climate change (probably from combinations of heat and earthquakes) that most of the islands will be gone:

Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.  Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found (Revelation 16:19-20).

Irrespective of any claims in Al Gore’s movie (which I did not see) or by the Nobel prize committee, I would also like to add that my own visit to glaciers in Alaska in 1982 and 1999 convinced me that there is significant glacial melting.
