CEO: Google totally innocent or ignorant of many things
The CEO of Google appeared on Capitol Hill this week to answer lawmakers' questions about biased politics and Chinese censorship, and he returned to work after getting an earful.
The United Nations put out a notice this week saying earth's inhabitants have roughly 12 years to do something about manmade climate change – or else. OneNewsNow spoke with someone who says he's heard it all before.
It's long been argued that man's burning of fossil fuels is resulting in changes to the planet; and that that's resulting in bigger, more powerful fires, storms, and other natural disasters. The warning went out again on Monday when the authors of a new report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said time is of the essence.
People must take "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society" in order to save the planet, the report warns. Otherwise, it states, the planet's surface could see a 2.7° F (1.5° C) increase between 2030 and 2052.
Author and Christian apologist Dr. Alex McFarland says he was told almost the same exact thing as a college student in 1982. "I well remember this at UNC-Greensboro," he offers. "They said that if we don't radically get the government involved, we have ten years to save the planet."
According to McFarland, the ultimate answer – for liberals – is going to be reduction of personal property and ownership rights, the increase of government, and what he describes as "insane regulations on business."
"We could let the Al Gores of the world do all they wanted in government, personal rights, and personal business – and 100 years from now it would not affect the outcome of the climate numbers one bit," he contends.
"I've been around the world [and] I do not believe that human activity is sufficient to change the outer atmosphere," he concludes. "There are cyclical weather patterns and have always been. And it's a much bigger world than the liberal alarmists would have you believe."
