Global Warming?

How does it square with this? I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Genesis 8:20-22
20 Then Noah built an altar to the LORD and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. 21 The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: "Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though [a] every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.
22 "As long as the earth endures,

seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease."

Great point. This passage tells us several things. God is in control and man cannot destroy the earth apart from God's will. He can save the earth by using ordinary means (man) if required or he can handle it by supernatural means.

This does not mean we shouldn't be good stewards of nature, but we shouldn't buy into every doomsday theory that comes along either. I read where some Hollywood actor said that humans would be extinct in ten years due to global warming. I am also curious as to why global warming is presented as being bad for everything. It seems that there would logically be a couple of benefits somewhere along the way.

God is in control.....

This is an interesting point you make about saving the earth using supernatural means. I was just reading a story on CNN about the female shark who gave birth to a shark without any contact with a male for about three years. In fact, I think they were "pups" when they came to the Omaha, NE, zoo to begin with. And they got into talking about increased instances of asexual reproduction where the population was low...

Now their side was that it's evolution trying to maintain the species. And of course we say it is God following through on His promises to us.

It is amazing how smart evolution is. Imagine being able to go to plan B because it was in a zoo.
