Climate Science, Energy Policy, Poverty, and Christian Faith: How do they Connect?

"In the March 16, 2016, issue of Forbes astrophysicist Ethan Siegel’s article The Next Great Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ is Coming! sought to refute sceptics of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) by arguing that the apparent lack of statistically significant global warming over roughly the last 18 or 19 years is just one in a series of lulls in a long-term warming trend for which human action is responsible."

The author does a great job showing the strongest arguments against the standard hypothesis for climate change in climatology; that the effect predates the cause (violation of causality), that the models overstate reality by 2.5x-5x, and that for the poor, climate change could end up being a very good thing.  

For those doing ministry in developing countries, another thing comes to mind; the author notes that in many areas, people spend a huge amount of time collecting fuel, and the smoke from it kills millions.  Can we say "stoves with flues"?

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
