    We’ll see how Americans feel once their electric bills quadruple, and we all have to pay carbon taxes on just about everything. Meanwhile the elites and their U.N bureaucrats will live in luxury, as the rest of us are driven to live in squalor. This is what happens when the elites and certain government officials collaborate with grant-hungry sycophantic “scientists” and media lackeys to perpetuate their propaganda (see the “Climate Gate” Copenhagen e-mails of 2009). This is all in the name of ushering in a “post-industrial age,” which for most of us means regressing to the Dark Ages.

    It’s so predictable how the indoctrinated instantly dub themselves intellectually superior. Climate skeptics are considered “deniers” and “flat-earthers” by these smug, condescending, pseudo-intellectual sophists. You can’t have a civil discussion with these people, because they always resort to insults.

    God will not destroy the earth, nor will he allow man to destroy it, since he will destroy those destroying the earth (Revelation 11:18). Thus, the earth will be cleansed of all wicked ones (Isaiah 11:4), as well as of worldwide pollution that has been caused by man.

    As to sin, the benefits of Jesus’ ransom sacrifice will be applied to mankind during his upcoming millennial rule. Inherited sin and death will be done away with by the end of that rule, and man will thereafter live forever on earth (Revelation 21:3,4). That was God’s original plan or purpose for his earthly family to begin with.
