Environment

You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.” – Psalm 8:6-8

Our secular society believes humanity is in charge of its own destiny and has to save ourselves from impending disaster. In contrast, the Bible comforts us with the assurance that God is always watching over His creation. But that does not promote indifference. On the contrary, we have a calling to fulfill our mandate as stewards of the earth.

30 Aug 2010 UN climate panel urged to reform, stick to science

Globe & Mail, August 30, 2010: The UN climate panel should only make predictions when it has solid scientific evidence and avoid straying into policy advocacy, a group of national science academies said in a report on Monday. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was hit with a wave of criticism after acknowledging in January that its 2007 global warming report had exaggerated the pace of Himalayan glaciers melting. It had previously said the report had overstated how much of the Netherlands is below sea level. Read more...

16 Jul 2010 Don’t dismiss Climategate just yet

Lorne Gunter, National Post, July 16, 2010: Last week, the third of three allegedly independent inquiries into last fall's Climategate scandal at Britain's Climate Research Unit (CRU) was concluded. Like the other two, it found troubling behaviour by the scientists at the CRU or by the University of East Anglia, of which the CRU is a part -- most notably attempts to hide data from critics and from government investigators.

16 Nov 2009 The Copenhagen Treaty

ARPA Note and Action Item: The United Nations (including Canada) are meeting in Copenhagen in December with the purpose of making a treaty to combat climate change. Why has there been so much pressure to come up with a treaty after the failure of Kyoto? One of the motivations behind this movement is using the concern over the environment to advance a form of international socialism in which industrial nations give large sums of money to developing countries because of their "carbon footprint". This sounds like the payment of indulgences for sins of omissions (the state religion being pantheistic humanism). For more information, have a look at the proposed Copenhagen treaty. After reading the article below, please consider writing a note to Prime Minister Harper, Environment Minister Prentice, and your MP, urging them to climb off of the climate change bandwagon.

Note: Read an ARPA Canada article about the donating cord blood by clicking here.Tom Blackwell, National Post (Aug 4/09): For fetuses, the umbilical cord is a lifeline. Once those babies are out of the womb, however, the cord becomes so much medical waste, tossed out even if the cord blood is saved for future use. But now a group of Toronto researchers says it has discovered that umbilical cords are a "virtually inexhaustible" source of promising stem cells, helping scientists...

17 Apr 2009 Giving Birth to Healing: Why All Prospective Parents Should Consider Donating Cord Blood

By Mark Penninga (First published in Reformed Perspective Magazine) Blood – It’s in us to give. Many of us donate blood because it is an easy way to help those in need. But few are aware that every time a baby is born, the umbilical cord and placenta are filled with a most precious type of blood that can also be donated. Generally referred to as cord blood (i.e. from the umbilical cord), this blood is rich in stem cells. Because stem cells are capable of developing into many types of cells, tissues and even organs, they have a potential to be used for cures to many health defects. Unfortunately, cord blood is usually discarded. In the past, when stem cells were not yet discovered, this was understandable. But now that we know just how rich a treasure they are, it would be wise to consider donating cord blood.
