Teaching Truth to Save Us: Scholar Persecuted for Telling the Truth

direpredictionsBattles to shed lights of truth on Global Warming remain hard fought.  Moneyed interests still multiply their wealth regardless of who their factories kill along the way. These battles probably cost Al Gore the Presidency. Sometimes bits of truth on the subject are shamed out of media. But few have suffered the years of rejection, harassment and threats which Dr. Michael Mann, PhD endures.

Summarizing threats Mann––who shared the Nobel Prize with V. P. Gore for his work on Climate Change––endured since publishing ‘The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines,’ DarkSydeFollow writes:

“Imagine a place where you and your family are threatened, your employer pressured by the most powerful people on earth to fire you, your email hacked and posted by the usual suspects in accusatory snippets, and where a mysterious letter containing white powder mixed in with tons of traditional hate mail land in your inbox.”  Sounds like stuff for a mystery novel?  But no:

“That’s life in the land of the free and the home of the brave for prominent climate scientists these days. . . . It’s a David and Goliath struggle between scientific truth and corporate propaganda, with nothing less than the biosphere of planet earth in the balance.”

To answer a question about Climate Change and Hurricane Sandy, the Haiyan storm, etc. during a recent radio interview, Dr. Mann replies:  “It’s really this simple: we predicted decades ago that we would see more frequent and intense heat waves, more widespread drought, more catastrophic flooding events, etc.

“And now that we are indeed seeing this come true, as we predicted would be the case if we continued to burn fossil fuels and elevate atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, the burden is no longer on those arguing for a connection, but on those arguing for the lack of a connection.”

He explains that these weather anomalies are occurring because earth is in an atmosphere 1.5-degrees Fahrenheit warmer, with four percent more moisture generating hurricanes, typhoons, and other weather attacks––all because corporations, their paid politicians, and too-often paid-for- advertising media scream as loud as they can to deny the truth.  Mann further asserts:

“The answer is, yes—the record heat, drought, devastating wildfires, coastal flooding events, etc. that we are seeing is norfolk_sea_level_floodalmost certainly a result of human-caused Global Warming and Climate Change. And it will get much worse if we don’t do something to curtail our ever-escalating burning of fossil fuels.”

In Bible prophecies, College Professor PhDs are called scribes.  Those scribes in Scripture who betrayed truth for fame or money are condemned as hypocrites who know nothing about responsibilities of scholars to tell the truth.  But God lauds the rare exception of fearless absolute truth-telling scribes. Ezra, who wrote the Old Testament book bearing his name, was a most honorable scribe who led Israel out of its second enslavement in Babylon (Iraq).

The Bible speaks of him: “This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which The LORD God of Israel had given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of The LORD His God upon him (7: 6).”  Dr. Mann is an Ezra-type scribe: a man who endures persecution to deliver the message God gives him to save earth’s billions of people.  Let us pray that God will bless, reward and preserve Dr. Mann and his family forever.
