Dr. Jay W. Richards gave a helpful presentation on various questions surrounding global warming back in 2007 on the campus of the University of California (Davis). He first gives a theistic foundation (Genesis 1-3) for man’s role in a world made by God. Then he raises (and seeks to answer) a logical sequence of important questions:
1. Is the Earth warming?
2. Are humans causing the Earth to warm?
3. Is it a bad thing if the Earth is warming?
4. Would the advised policies make any difference?
I appreciate Dr. Richards’ being willing to go where the data leads without any rigid ideological commitment. Check it out:
