As you can tell from my posts I am passionate about protecting the environment. However, I am equally concerned with alarmist politicians, (whom I won’t name, but you can probably guess who some of them are) who insist that the world will literally end in 12 years if we don’t do something. I will try to avoid voting for such candidates, as to me it shows that they are gullible and incompetent. It also appears to be so that scientists have made many shoddy predictions about a climate disaster in the past. Due to this, I prefer to focus not on the future, but on the present with regards to the harmful effects of climate change, and from the present day evidence alone, we can already see that pollution has negative effects on life on earth, as thousands die every year from poor air quality.
I have little trust in future predictions, and I think we scientifically minded believers should distance ourselves from the alarmists if we want climate change to be taken seriously by conservative evangelicals. How can we strike a balance, and in spite of everything, can we still trust climate scientists?
