Climate Change: Then and Now

The use of the term ‘climate change’ instead of ‘global warming’ is misleading. It implies that there’s something natural about the rapid uptick in average global temperatures. Read:

Indeed, even the term ‘global warming’ (instead of AGW) is ‘soft talk’; but, it’s acceptable, since it’s commonly understood that when you say ‘global warming’, ‘anthropogenic global warming’ is the reference. Read:

The term ‘climate change’ came about as an attempt to encourage meaningful discussion on the subject of global warming without immediately inducing a universal conditioned fearful response that’d stymy meaningful discussion. So, we went from AGW, to global warming, and then to climate change in order to assuage the fears of those too easily upset by what is the ‘natural consequence’ of our actions. 

A deterministic argument could be mounted, however, that because mankind was created by God, anything that man does is of the ‘natural order’. Therefore, the global warming phenomenon induced by fossil fuel emissions is ultimately God’s Will. After all, He created the vast deposits of coal and oil. 

This, however, violates the Spiritual Law of Free Will bestowed upon man by God. Indeed, the availability of fossil fuels is somewhat akin to the apple on the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

In any case, however, we still must contend with God’s ‘physical law’ whereby carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, etcetera have a blanketing effect upon infrared radiation. Read:

Note: Metaphysics and quantum physics do have some overlap. So, if you can get on board with that, here’s a video worth watching:
