Is the earth on a collision course with catastrophe? The climatists say it is and that human beings are to blame. But environmental researcher and author Steve Goreham, author of the The Mad, Mad, Mad, World of Climatism, says that’s just not so.
Climatism is the belief that man-made greenhouse gasses are wreaking havoc with the climate and destroying the planet. Climatists say the gases from industry are warming the earth so much that the ice caps are melting, the oceans are rising, and the polar bears are threatened with extinction.
If there’s a heat wave, a cold snap, stronger than usual hurricanes, droughts or floods — climatists say it’s all because of man-made climate change. They add that if we don’t curb our evil, carbon-emitting ways, the earth is doomed.
But Goreham says not so fast. The environmental researcher and author of The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism says that science points to natural factors — not human activity — as the cause of global warming. He calls climatism the greatest global delusion in history.
What are some of the myths about climate change? On July 25, Goreham appeared on “The 700 Club” to talk about those myths. Goreham talks about Little Ice Age, the Medieval Warming Period, the effect of the sun on the Earth’s climate, and much more. This is a very incisive interview by Pat Robertson, which you should watch below.
