NEW YORK -- The debate about global warming is over. A Texas pastor has come up with a watertight theory that will shame the swathe of scientists that have concluded, through precise calculations and years of theoretical modelling, that the rise in the earth’s average temperature is a result of increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases.
Rather than man-made carbon emissions, global warming is in fact due to… the imminent return of Jesus. How did the scientists miss it? Speaking to his flock in a recent TV broadcast, Matthew Hagee explains that when scientists contradict the world of God, "God’s word is accurate and men are wrong".
As such, Hagee asserts that any changing weather patterns experienced by his sheeply viewers are not a sign of human activity leading to a warming of the atmosphere, reductions in ice and changes to the global water cycle, but simply a welcome mat for a beardy guy that died 2,000 years ago in the Middle East.
As the pastor explains: "The Bible says that whenever we approach the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ that there would be strange weather patterns. Jesus said this in Matthew the twenty-fifth chapter.
"So we have a decision to make: do we believe what an environmentalist group says and choose to live in a world where we're attempting to make everything as clean in the air as possible, or do we believe what the Bible says, that these things were going to happen and that rather than try to clean up all of the air and solve all of the problems of the world by eliminating factories, we should start to tell people about Jesus Christ who is to return?"
So… put down that recycling bin and pick up that Bible!
