Just to keep you up to date – Brrrrrr!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on January 6th, 2008

The “Chuch of the Warming of the Globe” now has more vocal dis-believers willing to question the conventional wisdom that the earth will continue to warm and that it’s our own fault.

The reason I keep commenting on the issue is that this is a classic example of how we human beings add our interpretation to events and then consider our opinion to be the truth. I’m just as prone to doing this as anyone else. I can see where it’s cost me in my life. (I notice that I have a predisposition to see this issue in the way I do even now.)

Something happens, we say something about it, and what we say about it become fact – to us. The problem is, that after just a little of this, we start living out the cliche of the wise guru sitting cross-legged on the mountain and saying, “Life is an illusion.” Our life is no longer a response to facts, but to our own story about the facts. 

Life then becomes a soap opera that looks like non-fiction, double underlined truth to us. After all, ”If it was some other way, I’d know it, wouldn’t I?” We soon forget that we made it up and we defend our opinion like a part of our body.

Al Gore and the whole global warming movement underline and highlight this tendency for all of us to see. Is there global warming? Did human beings cause it? Is it really greenhouse gasses (carbon dioxide, etc.)? Some reasonable questions, but it’s likely some conclusions were reached prematurely, then all contrary opinions were demonized.

Al Gore didn’t say, “It looks this way to me at the moment, but I’m going to check the facts.” Al said, “I am convinced of how it is, and I’ll find the facts I need to support my belief.” One reason for this is that global warming theories fit nicely with Al’s personal need to find an issue that would make him feel important once again.

Here’s the latest for your consideration.
