Downplaying America’s Destruction Before Our Eyes

Scanning the front page of the New York Times’ “Global Edition” for the last two days, one would assume that the most important issues in the United States  are:  Air strikes on Libya; Europeans jockeying to replace the disgraced head of the International Monetary Fund; Volcanic ash cloud closing German airports; President Obama’s travels in Europe, etc.  There is nothing on the front page about the tornadoes devastating middle America.  Is it not of “Global” interest that these “unexplainably” violent tornadoes have killed nearly two hundred people, and 1500 more are missing, and may soon be presumed dead?
 Honest local newscasters admitted that people were asking if Climate Change caused traditional tornado alley to become so massively violent this year?  But national newscasters avoided the question as much as possible.  When one network weatherman was asked, he said that there was insufficient scientific data to confirm or deny Climate Change––i.e. Global Warming––as the reason.   That weather forecasters across the nation insist on giving daily weather news and forecasts, while providing no discussion of the ultimate reasons is astounding!  Were these “experts” trained in television performance or weather science?

 But now people in the Midwest publicly ask about Climate Change, even if newscasters don’t.  And, as always in a democracy, only persistent public demands for truth can break political, corporate and media stonewalling about Global Warming.  In a few days, when it is clear that these tornadoes have killed some 2,000 Americans, that wall MAY crack.  Corporate moguls deny that exclusively burning coal for energy led to recent weather anomalies devastating whole towns in Australia.  Their counterparts in Japan insist that building stronger walls to protect nuclear power plants can resist the types of massive earthquakes and tsunamis that killed thousands there.  And in the U.S., corporate moguls blanket television ads with smooth commercials touting the benefits of cracking open rocks beneath the earth for natural gas, while ignoring the truth that such practice ruins water supplies for thousands of people.  Corporate America will likewise attempt to control the truth about Global Warming’s affect on this week’s killer tornadoes.

 The deaths wrought by these tornadoes could have been prevented if American leadership had faced the truth about Global Warming and acted responsibly.  It is no longer viable to let corporate greed hold back the tide of truth.  In Bible prophecies, The Lord Jesus depicts lies leading to death as ultimate evil:  “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8: 44).  Americans must insist that its leaders tell the truth!
