I recycle just about anything I can recycle. Cans, newspapers, plastic bottles. I compost and try to save water where I can. But I really never gave Global Warming much thought.
When I did think about it, I figured a lot of what was being said out in the ‘world’ was being blow out of proportion or was being used for political gain.
After reading this book, my eyes have been opened more to the possibility that it’s not really a political issue. There is proof that things are changing and it’s mans fault that it’s gotten this way.
From the very beginning of this book I was drawn in. I was comforted in the very first statements of the authors.
“We’re Christians. We don’t worship the earth. We worship the Creator of the universe. We believe that God spoke the world into existence and sustains it by His power. We believe that Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life, that the Bible is God’s Word, and that nothing compare to the importance of the gospel message.”
I knew after reading that statement I would be able to gain a lot of wisdom and information.
Take a moment and look at this book. If you have ever wondered what all this ‘global warming’ stuff was about, this book would be a great resource for you.
