Joseph Farah: ‘Sin, Not Carbon, Causes Climate Change’

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah declared today that human activity can cause climate change, but not through greenhouse gas emissions.

Farah explained in a WND column that God causes climate change in response to sin, pointing to Noah’s Flood and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

These biblical accounts, he said, represent actual evidence of climate change, evidence that he says “carbon-phobes” lack.

While Al Gore and the carbon-phobes have no evidence to support their dire predictions of imminent doom other than computer modeling, those who take my position actually have more than 6,000 years of biblical and historical patterns along with the inerrant Word of God.

So maybe it’s time for a new bumper sticker – “SIN, NOT CARBON, CAUSES CLIMATE CHANGE.”

So God warned Noah He would send a flood to destroy the Earth, instructing Him to build an ark to His specifications – a large ship on which Noah would preserve the animal kingdom and his own family.

The coming climate change would be as radical as the one experienced by Adam and Eve. Apparently, it had never rained on Earth before this time, so it was a true test of Noah’s faith that the whole world would be consumed in a massive global flood. But that wasn’t the only cause of the flood. Not only were the windows of heaven opened for 40 days, but so were the fountains of the great deep.

When the waters receded, there were likely some profound climate changes. People didn’t live as long as the generations before Noah. Perhaps the oxygen content of the atmosphere was reduced.

And that was not the only environmental disaster that would befall man as he fell into sin.

In the time of Abraham, the city-states of Sodom and Gomorrah had tried God’s patience with their grievous sin. He sent two angels to save Abraham’s cousin and his family, sending them out of the plain and into the mountain before destroying the place and all life therein with a hail of fire and brimstone from heaven.
