Global Warming, Anyone?

Our Frozen Creek

Our creek has not frozen over in the 10 years we lived here. This photo was taken yesterday.

For the last few days, we’ve experienced the coldest temperatures since we moved to Colorado. It was -17 degrees yesterday morning! We were supposed to have escaped these temperatures when we moved from Minnesota in 2000, but this is cold even in those standards.

What happened? Five years ago, we were on the verge of melting!

No kidding. In January 2006, Al Gore made the public claim that we would face inevitable meltdown — even called it “Armageddon” — within the coming decade. I tend to lean toward Rush Limbaugh’s reaction: “Bwa ha ha!” Rush placed a ticking time clock on this website that today reads 4 years, 11 months, 24 days: “Countdown to Armageddon” he calls it. While you may not like how Rush makes fun of his political opponents, it’s tough not to laugh at Al Gore.

Boxes of our new book, Love Another Child, arrived yesterday. I shared it with a friend, father of 9 children, and he thumbed through the table of contents. He gravitated straight to Chapter 4: Our Environment. This is where Wendy and I drill down deep into the huge fallacies of the likes of Al Gore. We don’t get too political (we fought the temptation), but we reasonably analyze the claims made through the years — virtually all of them disproved — about how fragile our environment is. You’re in for a good read.

The book’s purpose is to persuade couples to consider another child. Why do we dedicate an entire chapter to environmentism? Because there is a popular mantra out there making the argument, “Children hurt the earth; therefore, don’t have another child.” The ideas of environmentalism and overpopulation is what we spend a good deal of time on.

Wendy and I can’t wait for you to read this book. We sent out our first batch today, signed 1st printings, and are taking orders for these special books now through Valentine’s Day. Order today: Love Another Child.

    I was listening to a man on the weather channel the other day talk about how the colder temps. are related to global warming. I don’t understand it at all. The only way that I believe the earth could be warming is that God is getting ready to destroy it with fire like He said He would.

      I’m not so sure about the end of the world idea, but I do have a simple
      answer to the “cooling = warming” idea. It is way too convenient of a
      position for someone to be in. “Even when I’m wrong, I’m right.” It is a
      refusal to believe in the simple truth, no matter how obvious the truth is.

        From my understanding of it, the global warming effects the flow of the Gulf Stream, which carries heat to Europe and the East Coast. If the glaciers melt and put extra water into the Atlantic, it disrupts the Gulf Stream (b/c of the density of the salty water and the way that it flows), no heat is carried north, and thus northern climates get cold again. However, that’s supposed to happen later on, not right yet at least. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing, just thought I’d state how warming leads to cooling.

        I’m not saying that the world is about to end. None of us know when that time will be. I’m just saying that I don’t believe the earth is warming like the weather people says it is.

    Oh, didn’t you hear? It’s been redefined. It’s not “global warming” anymore. It’s “climate chaos”, and it’s still our fault.

    My dad’s been predicting a mini ice age for years now. Looks like he’s a better weatherman than Al Gore. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I wish we had the funds to order your book. Right now any extra money is being saved to go towards getting into a house. Hopefully soon! I guess I’ll have to wait and order one later on when we have the money. Are they going to be sold on Amazon? I can get one with my Amazon gift cards I get for free from winning Swagbucks. :)

    I am with Jen- we are saving up to get your book- maybe it will be in paperback soon & cheaper?!? And you have already convinced us to LOVE another child even before we read the book- but we still want to read it!!! Thanks for all you do, your posts and blog entries are so encouraging!!

      Yeah, we know it is a bit pricey. This is the first time we’ve gone through
      a publisher, and I wish we had more control over the price. I hope it will
      come down in the future, we’ll see. BUT, I will guarantee you this: it is
      worth every penny as-is!

    I can’t wait for my copy to arrive!!

    I don’t think most people really believe in or care about global warming anymore. Unless they are dense of course. If they truly did believe in it as much as they accuse me of causing it for having 4 kids…McDonald’s would be out of business because there would be billions and billions of vegans serving themselves something else. LOL.
