Failure to Publish Truth About Signs of These Times

 National political leaders, news outlets, and weather forecasters do everything possible to discuss the current record-breaking heat waves across the United States without mentioning climate change and the effects of Global Warming.  Cities across the south, midwest and now the northeast, report heat temperatures above anything experienced in urban area or rural histories, and citizens everywhere are asking “why?” But few officials will answer with the truth––that the cause of these unending heat waves is Global Warming.
 As Dan Lashof of Natural Resources Defense Council in his article, “Global Warming and the Science of Extreme Weather” argues:  “Extreme weather turns climate change from an abstract concept about remote events, such as melting ice and drowning polar bears, to a concrete, often calamitous, experience for many Americans.”   He states further that while print and internet journalism have covered the “heat waves, floods, storms, and wildfires in recent months, there has been very little discussion of the increasingly clear links to climate change.”  Citing a survey by the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University, Lashof posits that such a lack of incomplete and deceptive reporting leaves too many Americans ignorant about Global Warming.

 Also, Scientific American affirmed recently:  “Heat Waves—Scientists are more than 90 percent certain that episodes of extreme heat will increase worldwide, leading to increased danger of wildfires, human deaths and water quality issues such as algal blooms.” In his study “Global Warming and the Science of Extreme Weather,” John Carey says that insurance companies have decided that such weather is the new norm:  “Extreme floods, prolonged droughts, searing heat waves, massive rainstorms and the like don’t just seem like they’ve become the new normal in the last few years—they have become more common, according to data collected by reinsurance company.”  And he points out that honest scientists and cautious insurance companies are doing everything possible to get these truths out to governmental officials and media outlets.  But these official channels responsible for distributing the truth do nothing but stifle it.

 As The Lord Jesus told charlatan religious leaders during His earthly ministry, those who assume leadership positions have responsibility for seeing and disseminating the truth:  “And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?” (Matthew 16: 3).  Bible prophecies do not just apply to prior generations, or specific nations.  There is no truer time in human history to which they apply more so than today––and they especially apply to the United States, as the chief contributor to Global Warming.  Not to discern the signs of these times brings only misery and death.  Now is the time for truth!
