Promoting Go Green Solutions In Such An Extreme Manner Is More Harmful Than Good

1371 words - 6 pages

Many mediums of information have advertisements about pollution, recycling, global warming, and other environmental topics that promote reducing electrical power, or using more recyclable materials, with a big emphasis on "going green." Long sentence. These advertisements promote rash decisions from people without giving them time to think about the available solutions. The preservation of earth is hugely important, but promoting these solutions in such an extreme manner is more harmful than good. Christians are called to be good stewards of the earth, so their solutions should be thoughtful, balanced, and avoid extremes. I looked over you first paragraph.

This is evident in a report done by the Institute for Energy Research, showing that regulations have shut down enough power plants to reduce gigawatts produced by thirty-four, or ten percent of our coal energy capacity.

It is important to keep in mind that the total effects of carbon dioxide, and other gases emitted from power plants have not been fully determined. While it is true that carbon dioxide plays a role in heating the atmosphere, it has also been proven to have positive effects on the environment. One of the many positive effects can be seen in earth's vegetation. It was recently revealed, during scientific observations many arid regions of the world have shown increased vegetation with the increase in carbon dioxide in recent years. Furthermore, it is still unclear how much of an impact humans have on global warming.

Additionally, it should be noted that the earth's heating is not an entirely unique climate. The earth has heated and cooled many times throughout its history. For instance, the earth was much warmer during the Roman and Medieval eras. If the earth is continuously heating and cooling, it is quite likely that the earth's current heating should not be considered as a huge cause for concern.

A lack of research is the underlying point of these objections to the current environmentalism movement. Christians should be thoughtful and responsible in their decisions for what they believe is the solution to current environmental issues. By educating themselves and being thoughtful, Christians can ensure that they propose balanced solutions which do not rely on restrictive economic action.

Ultimately, God provides solutions for humanity's problems which do not compromise the economic or ethical values. The book of Job explains how God designed the earth with such intricacy that the solutions for humanity's issues will always be ethical and economical. As a related article on Reasons.org points out, a possible solution to the planet's warming is to replant the outer parts of the Sahara and Gobi desert, so that the deserts can rejuvenate their land to its former condition. This solution would allow for the land to not only be used for agriculture, but could also allow the plant life there to absorb and use the carbon dioxide there.

Another point of interest that comes from the bible is that humanity has a limited control over nature. Ecclesiastes 8-12 emphasizes this point; man has a limited ability to control the challenges of earth. It is ultimately within God's control of the earth that it will continue to flourish and provide. However, Christians certainly have a responsibility to care for the earth. Christians' efforts are not invalidated in working to keep the earth healthy for nature and the people of the earth, both present and future. "The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it (Genesis 2:15)." It is important for all Christians to try and be helpful in...
