earth shall wax old like a garment.
The apostle Peter and the prophet Isaiah state
that the earth is wearing out, waxing old and
the elements shall melt with a fervent heat.
In the book of Revelation it states that God
will destroy them which destroy the earth.
Isaiah 51:6 Lift up
your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the
earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish
away like smoke, and the earth
shall wax old like a garment.
Man Destroying the Earth
Revelation 11:18 And
the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come,
and the time of the dead, that they should
be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward
unto thy servants the prophets, and to the
saints, and them that fear thy name, small
and great; and shouldest
destroy them which destroy the earth.
Effects of global warming
- Polar Ice and Glaciers
The IPCC's summary of part of its 2007
report (p.5) states that "eleven
of the last twelve years (1995 -2006)
rank among the
12 warmest years in the instrumental
global surface temperature (since 1850)."
Since 1900 global glacier surface area
has decreased by half and glacial retreat
on every continent. The effects include
landslides, glacial lake overflow and
flash floods as regular,
patterns of snowfall and some melting
Less glacier meltwater in summer means the
drying up of rivers and streams, needed for
drinking water, irrigation and many other processes.
Just imagine the effects from an accelerated
melting of Himalayan glaciers. The Ganges and
other major rivers are the lifeblood for the
huge populations of India, China and other
parts of Asia.

"There is now
clear evidence that the mean annual temperature
at the Earth's surface, averaged
over the entire globe, has been increasing
in the past 200 years. There is also clear
evidence that the abundance of greenhouse gases
in the atmosphere has increased over the same
have become a major source of environmental
change. Of great urgency are the climate consequences
of the increasing atmospheric abundance of
greenhouse gases... Because greenhouse gases
continue to increase, we are, in effect, conducting
a global climate experiment, neither planned
nor controlled, the results of which may present
unprecedented challenges to our wisdom and
foresight as well as have significant impacts
on our natural and societal systems."
The New York Times
" The world's leading
climate scientists said global warming has
caused by man, and will be unstoppable for
centuries. The phrase very likely translates
to a more than 90 percent certainty that global
warming is caused by man's burning of fossil
fuels. That was the strongest conclusion to
date, making it nearly impossible to say natural
forces are to blame." -

come as a thief in the night; in the which
heavens shall pass away with a great noise,
and the elements shall
melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that
are therein shall be burned up.
