Rising Sea Levels, Failing Shores and Heads in Global Sands, Part 2

 Increasingly, scientists of various backgrounds weigh in on issues of Global Warming and end-time destruction.  Those from one interesting field, paleontology––the science of the forms of life existing in former geologic periods, as represented by their fossils––now report that causes of total life extinction in prior earth history now closely resemble conditions threatening earth today:  release of methane, carbon dioxide and other potent greenhouse gases that had been trapped in sea floors into the atmosphere; rising ocean temperatures; extended volcanic activity heating up the atmosphere; rising sea levels and hotter seas, etc.

 In 1994 paleontologist Peter Ward published a book titled ‘The End of Evolution: A Journal in Search of Clues to the Third Mass Extinction Facing Earth.’  His prophetic text got very little attention from scholarly, scientific or environmental communities.  He followed that up last year with another volume that warned about pending mass extinctions entitled ‘The Flooded Earth: Our Future in A World Without Ice Caps.’  That one got a bit more attention because so much of the truth about Global Warming, climate change, melting glaciers and rising sea levels is before the eyes of any who care to observe.  As scientists now admit that the Third Mass Extinction may well loom upon the world, National Geographic includes Ward’s comments in its series, “Earth Under Water.”

 Brandon Keim reports in his recent article, “Scientists have raised the possibility that rising global temperatures could release trapped methane into the atmosphere, further raising temperatures and releasing more methane in a feedback loop of warming and planetary disruption. That’s apparently what happened during the end-Triassic extinction.”
 In their study, “Consequences of Climate Change on the Oceans,” the Climate Institute assert: “. . . even a seemingly small increase in sea level can have a dramatic impact on many coastal environments. Over 600 million people live in coastal areas that are less than 10 meters above sea level, and two-thirds of the world’s cities that have populations over five million are located in these at-risk areas.”  While the Institute carefully explains the impossibility of accurately estimating how long it will take ocean-levels to severely impact human populations, it concludes: “ . . . very large numbers of people in vulnerable locations are going to be forced to relocate. If relocation is delayed or populations do not evacuate during times when the areas are inundated by storm surges, very large numbers of environmental refugees are likely to result.”

 And yet national leaders feign sleepiness about Global Warming, the major cause of melting glaciers and rising sea levels.  But beware!  Bible prophecies explain:  “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy” (Proverbs 29: 1).  It is time to wake them up!
