How Would You Handle the Evidence?

Suppose you decide to build a new home. You are presented the plans, and at a considerable cost you agree to have it built. As the house is being constructed, costs overrun development. Pretty soon you are borrowing money to cover the expenses. The situation grows more dire when the builders, who assured you that your dream home would exceed expectations, tell you that the foundation was laid on sandy soil, causing it to sink. In addition the house, half way built, looks nothing like what the contractor told you it would. What would you do?

Suppose you decide to build a new home. You are presented the plans, and at a considerable cost you agree to have it built. As the house is being constructed, costs overrun development.

The situation grows more dire when the builders, who assured you that your dream home would exceed expectations, tell you that the foundation was laid on sandy soil, causing it to sink. In addition the house, half way built, looks nothing like what the contractor told you it would.

What would you do?

A.) Continue to pour money into the house because you trust the contractor who had no idea he was building the house on sand, and was building something that did not look like the blue prints.

B.) Stop building the house and return to your old house.

C.) Sue the contractor to get your money back.

D.) Options B and C.

Now look at the charts below.

To the left are the temperatures of the oceans (blue) and air (red) vs CO2 (green). In the middle are model projections vs. actual temperatures, and to the right are temperatures over the last 4 years since the Pacific went into its cold mode.

The current policies are costing this nation time and money and suppressing economic growth based on faulty forecasts, which were based on faulty assumptions about what was driving the warming – a rush to judgement to hide the bigger agenda.

So what would you do, given the evidence showing this house of cards is being built on a foundation of sand?

Perhaps Matthew 7:27 has an answer to what happens to a house built on sand, and what will happen to the AGW agenda as we watch the years play out and the natural cyclical events that have always driven the climate, the actual rock upon which this house should be built, continue to assert themselves: “The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

The truth becomes clearer by the day.
