  • Intl group disavows U.N.'s climate claims

    by Gregory Tomlin, posted Thursday, March 20, 2008 (10 years ago)

    ORIGINALLY POSTED March 19, 2008

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--TIME magazine warned that scientists had observed "bizarre and unpredictable weather patterns" which led them to believe the world was headed for "a global climatic upheaval." Fluctuations in temperature, rainfall and sea ice were all described as signs of impending doom.

    But the scientists interviewed by TIME weren't talking about global warming, and the magazine wasn't issued in the 21st century. The June 1974 report in TIME... Read More

    ORIGINALLY POSTED March 19, 2008

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--The most-often quoted authority on global climate change is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a scientific group established in 1988 by the United Nations to evaluate the risk of human-induced climate change. It was the IPCC that shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore, former vice president of the United States.

    Since its inception, the panel has published four reports that reviewed climate research conduc... Read More

  • Evangelicals differ on climate dispute

    by Mark Kelly, posted Thursday, March 20, 2008 (10 years ago)

    ORIGINALLY POSTED March 19, 2008

    NASHVILLE (BP)--Disagreements among evangelical Christians about global warming are rooted in a fundamental question: Is human-induced climate change a real problem? And, if interviews with two evangelical advocates are any indicator, proposed responses to the issue differ dramatically, depending on how a person answers that question.

    E. Calvin Beisner, national spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation (www.cornwallallianc... Read More

    ORIGINALLY POSTED March 19, 2008

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Christians and Southern Baptists on different sides in the policy debate over the environment can nonetheless partner together to care for it out of a belief that such action is biblically commanded, two Southern Baptist leaders who themselves are on different sides of the issue say.

    The comments by Barrett Duke, vice president of public policy and research for the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commi... Read More

    ORIGINALLY POSTED March 19, 2008

    PLANO, Texas (BP)--For Prestonwood Baptist Church, being good stewards of the earth also means saving some money in the process.

    In July 2006 the Plano, Texas, church, pastored by Jack Graham, implemented an energy conservation program that involved, among other things, changing light bulbs and altering water usage. Since then, the church has saved more than $1.5 million on utility bills, church officials say.

  • My Nobel Moment & Global Climate Change

    by John R. Christy, posted Thursday, March 20, 2008 (10 years ago)

    HUNSTVILLE, Ala. (BP)--I've had a lot of fun recently with my tiny (and unofficial) slice of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But, though I was one of thousands of IPCC participants, I don't think I will add "0.0001 Nobel Laureate" to my resume.

    The other half of the prize was awarded to former Vice President Al Gore, whose carbon footprint would stomp my neighborhood flat. But that's another story.

    Both halves of the award h... Read More

  • Spirited, Christ-like climate debate

    ORIGINALLY POSTED March 19, 2008

    TAYLORS, S.C. (BP)--Recently, Southern Baptists' attention has been focused on media reports which relate to the release of and the signing of a document titled, Southern Baptists Environment and Climate Initiative. Seldom have I seen such a reaction. Part of this has been slightly humorous.

    For example, I had no idea that we had as many experts in climatology and earth science as we seem to have. Second, I have seen an arrogance among a few that ... Read More
