Now he jumps on what a lot of fundies subscribe to, the "there ain't no climate change man is impacting, so jist keep on prayin' kids" bandwagon.

His blog:

https://answersingenesis.org/blogs/k...nge-alarmists/

The wingnut concludes with:
We donít need to be concerned about drastic climate change. Our climate, and the checks and balances that keep it operating within safe parameters, were designed by an all-wise Creator. And when you start with a biblical view of Earthís history, you reach an entirely different conclusion about the nature and cause of climate change.
Don't worry, be happy was his theme song 20 years ago, I bet.
He's right, of course. There has been no measurable man-made climate change. You do realize that it wasn't that long ago they were concerned about an ice-age, right?

The earth is bigger than us. I'm not arrogant enough to believe that we have the power that they think we do to change it.

OK? So not everyone predicted it. And? You do realize that there are dissenters now to the global warming doom and gloom, right?

But for kicks....suppose we have created warming....what do you propose we do about it? There is nothing America can do to stop it on our own, and other countries like China are not going to cooperate with economy-killing emissions cuts.

I suppose climate change would be a whole different topic. But it's not unusual for creationists like Ham to get into the climate change denial stuff too. Some creationists get into things like the anti-vaccination movement.

There's a joke that goes something like this:

"A creationist, a 9-11 truther, an anti-vaxer, and a global warming denialist walk into a bar. He orders a drink."

Kind of weird, but not all anti-vaxers are creationists...

I think his point is that God knew what he was doing when he created the Earth. The Earth is a marvelous self-regulating environment. God is in control--and he showed it when he created it.

Apparently God is getting a little chilly. He keeps adjusting the thermostat upward every couple of years. He must not be related to my father.

This sort of thinking is the reason why "New atheists" have to do what they do. The religious fundies have to be deleted as influences on society or the policy would be: "Just carry on ...God has everything under control..."
