Evangelical Science-Faith Think Tank Calls Solving Climate Change "Complex"
"To suggest that we can stop global warming by simply cutting back on fossil fuel combustion and altering our industrial processes is naïve at best. If we ignore one or more of certain mechanisms that contribute to either global warming or cooling, our attempted solutions could actually make matters worse. Scientifically speaking this intricate balance, designed specifically for humanity’s benefit, is no accident. The amazing fine tuning observed in all these complex processes gives us a clear picture of a Creator who exquisitely prepared a place for humans to live in and to launch—at least for awhile—a global high-tech civilization.” So says astronomer Hugh Ross, founder and president of the Evangelical Christian-oriented science-faith think tank Reasons To Believe (www.reasons.org).
