How Many Earth Hours?

Iceland volcano could have world consequences

For how many earth hours will the gullible have to dim their lights to compensate for this?

The fact is that any cutbacks all mankind could make in their contribution to so-called, "greenhouse gasses" would be infinitesimal, neglibible and insignificant in comparison. Yet we are brainwashing our schoolchildren and other innocent or gullible souls that WE, the unconquerable human race, we, the all powerful who have it within our abilities to solve any problem, can actually do something to change things. And this at potentially back-breaking economic cost to this and future generations. Now, I am not encouraging enviromental irresponsibility, but let's not have a higher opinion of ourselves than we should.

We have come to think of ourselves as equal to God. We think we have the power to get ourselves back to the garden.

Take Care

Your point is valid, but there is another way of looking at things. I can't vouch for the scientific accuracy, but the link below suggests that the Icelandic volcano is having signficant positive effect on CO2 emissions due to the large number of canceled flights:

I'm glad Warren posted that link, as it stresses how significant our contributions to greenhouse gases and global warming are. Incidentally, how is arrogance to recognize the harmful effects of our lifestyle and to try to change it?

I also loved the passage that you linked to, but I'd keep reading if I were you. First, they don't die (indeed, they conspire to raise an enormous progeny--so enormous that Cain is given a mark so that people would know not to kill him because they presumably wouldn't recognize a relative?), so God's a bit of a liar, right? But the real money verse is 22:

And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."

What God wanted to keep from man was knowledge. Knowledge. And I'll be honest, the global warming deniers, the AIDS deniers, the people that say that being gay is a choice (just like when you made the decision to be heterosexual), all seem to be trying to put that fruit back on the tree.
