Hopefully the hysteria over human impact on global warming will be curbed by recent findings that cow emissions are more damaging to the planet than carbon dioxide from cars, and that trees share the blame for global warming because they give off significant amounts of methane just by growing.

It’s time to consider that maybe we weren’t meant to worry about breathing and planting trees. It’s time to consider the possibility that maybe God just isn’t the asshole that leftists think he is. When we’re told that God made men in his image, it doesn’t mean liberals.

Really, only an atheist could come up with the idea that people control the weather, and that by advancing society industrially and technologically, we’re summoning the planet’s wrath. That human advancement is punished. (Actually, that does sort of sound like some religious beliefs, doesn’t it?)

But God wouldn’t do that. He wouldn’t make us creatures who strive, only to have everything blow up in our faces.

Meanwhile, Nigel Calder, former editor of New Scientist magazine and co-author of the new book The Chilling Stars, wrote an article this month making the case for a reappraisal of the climate change theory, concluding that “humility in face of Nature’s marvels seems more appropriate than arrogant assertions that we can forecast and even control a climate ruled by the sun and the stars.”

This is a more eloquent way of saying what I’ve been saying for years: Weather is like any other diva. She’s got attitude, and she doesn’t like to be predictable. We don’t like it when someone knows our every next move, and neither does the weather. Why do you think it’s called the “weather”? Because you don’t know whether it’s going to behave the way it’s supposed to.
