Climate Panic Heating Up
The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change just released its 6th 4,000-page assessment report. I can summarize it for you: We are all going to die unless we allow more big government, more regulations, more socialism, and less freedom. Only if we do that now, right now, immediately, do we have a chance to save ourselves, maybe.
The frustrated climate alarmists are making it clear there is no time for debate. The science is settled, they say. But science demands that all orthodoxies be constantly challenged. And the truth is we were told we had only 10 years left in 1970, 1980, 1990, etc. etc.
By the way, in 1970 the “experts” said we were heading into a new ice age and we would all freeze to death. In the 80s and 90s they switched to global warming and we were all going to burn. Now the mantra is “climate change.”
At least they will be right on this because climate does change over the centuries with regular patterns of warming and cooling.
Professor Steven Koonin at New York University sums it up well. Writing in the Wall Street Journal this morning, he concluded “Good science is characterized by detail, data, proven models and reasoned debate. That takes time. Meanwhile, we should be wary of the torrent of hyperbole that is sweeping the globe.”
COVID & Abortion
America right now is dealing with two deadly diseases that target people on the margins of life.
The first one – COVID-19 – is in the headlines every day. It has consumed our attention for 18 months since it probably leaked from a Chinese communist lab in Wuhan.
The second – abortion on demand – is a disease of the heart. And sadly, it rarely makes headlines. We have been dealing with this since 1973 when the Supreme Court claimed it found a right to kill the unborn in the Constitution of the United States.
So far, over 600,000 Americans have died of COVID. A disproportionate number of them were elderly people and those with pre-existing conditions.
So far, abortion on demand in America has taken the lives of over 20 million unborn children.
On this very day, 500 people will sadly die of COVID; but abortion will claim a much larger toll of several thousand of our most defenseless children.
Thankfully, COVID does not kill 99 percent of people who contract it. But 99.9 percent of abortion victims die. It’s rare indeed for an unborn child to miraculously escape death from the abortionist’s knife.
We’re spending billions of dollars to fight COVID and to overcome the damage it’s doing to our society.
At the same time, we’re spending billions of dollars to subsidize abortion while pro-abortion politicians try to compel everybody to participate in the slaughter.
While we disagree on strategy, most of us understand the importance of fighting COVID. And – with God’s help – we’re well on our way to defeating it. Today, the new Delta strain of COVID appears to have already peaked in the “hot spots” of the last couple of weeks.
I pray that we will defeat abortion soon and that all of our children will someday be welcomed into the world and protected under the law.
But we remain deeply divided over whether the destruction of nearly a million unborn children a year is something to be stopped or celebrated.
American Values will continue to do everything we can to save our innocent unborn children.
