Pat Robertson Joins Global Warming Cult

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson said on Thursday the wave of scorching temperatures across the United States has converted him into a believer in global warming.

"We really need to address the burning of fossil fuels," Robertson said on his "700 Club" broadcast. "It is getting hotter, and the icecaps are melting and there is a buildup of carbon dioxide in the air."

Once again, we face this dilemma: We know the earth is getting warming, and we know that weather is warmer now than it was 10, 20, maybe even 30 years ago. But for us to say that these changes are something all together significant versus anything else in the history of the earth would mean that we’d have to have access to weather records over at least 500 years…

But, I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge this new item considering my stance on Global Warming.

So, I guess this still leaves us all at the impasse of either believing that man has caused this in the last 50 years, or it is part of a larger cycle far out of our limited control. We have all of earth’s history of unstable climate and shifting weather patterns on one end, and we have 25 years of pseudo-research and faulty computer projections with a whole lot of scare tactics on the other.

I’m torn?
