Source of all our Warmth.
You got it all wrong. God created global warming.
- Well, of course. Maybe we have the ability to influence it a little, though.
Global warming existed long before we did. That's for sure. Have a look at my climate history page
for more about it.
These are the mechanisms of global climate change people most often point out for us:
- Cycles in the earth's orbit and orientation, dubbed Milankovitch Cycles.
- Greenhouse gases partially prevent the re-radiation of previously accepted incoming solar radiation. The earth has no choice but to keep the extra heat.
- Opaque particles in the atmosphere have the opposite effect. They slow the incoming solar radiation and introduce a cooling effect.
- The source of heat changes periodically. The sun has its sunspot cycles and solar wind that we deal with all the time.
- Internal feedback in the earth/atmosphere system can amplify or dampen these primary changes. The weightings of each of these effects can only be determined after the fact, though, and any future temperature changes or other predicted effects are based on speculation.
On that note, there is such a concept as runaway climate change, where a global temperature passes a so-called tipping point and leap to a new level, like electrons in particle physics. This higher temperature would then be our permanent home. It's a theory.
Here is an expert opinion I obtained:
Global warming and its causes can be complex and multifaceted. It's important to consider scientific consensus and evidence-based research when discussing these things.
Many scientists agree that human activities, like burning fuels and deforestation, have contributed to the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. The greenhouse gases keep heat from escaping, changing the climate.
People may hold different perspectives on the role of God in global warming based on their religious beliefs and interpretations. Earth and its natural systems are viewed by some as God's creation,
so protecting and preserving them is important.
No matter what your religion is, addressing global warming is crucial for our planet and future generations. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote sustainable practices, and make the world more environmentally friendly and resilient, individuals, communities, governments, and organizations need to work together.
As we understand it today, "global warming" isn't explicitly mentioned in the Bible. Nevertheless, the Bible talks about stewardship,
caring for the Earth, and the consequences of our actions. Climate change and environmental degradation can be addressed with these teachings.
In Genesis 1:28, God tells Adam and Eve to "fill the earth and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28), which can be interpreted as responsibly managing and caring for the planet.
The Bible also emphasizes taking care of God's creation and being mindful of our impact on it.
It's true that the specific terminology and scientific understanding of climate change aren't in the Bible, but the principles of responsibility, stewardship, and caring for the Earth are. Several religious groups and individuals interpret these teachings as a call to address climate change and work towards sustainability.
Different people and faith traditions interpret religious texts differently. Religious groups have issued statements or taken action in response to climate change, highlighting the moral imperative to protect the planet.Search

It's important to engage in scientific research, study climate change's impacts, and promote sustainable solutions to address global warming and protect our planet.
