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

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.

24 Oct 2007 Global Warming: Two Wrongs Show Us What’s Right

19 Oct 2007 The Kyoto Protocol

By Doug Schouten, November 2002It seems like global bureaucracy was in vogue this past century. Following suit with its fashionable counterparts, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) adopted the Kyoto Protocol (Kyoto) in 1997. Kyoto imposes emissions regulations on all the signing countries with the aim of reducing, by 2012, the so-called “greenhouse gas” emissions to pre-1990 levels.
