Topics of Truth Compliments of Pastor Jessie M. Jones 762-7963 Well, according to the national news, President Obama and other world leaders are to meet soon to discuss global warming and try to figure out ways to stop it. I remember in the 1970's - I'm sure some of you will too - that the worry then about our Earth was the opposite. At that time, the predictions were that the Earth was actually "cooling down" and what disaster that could mean for our world in years to come. Well that "future" is now our "present" and the so-called experts are now predicting gloom and doom because our Earth seems to now be warming up. I know plenty of you will probably disagree with me but I think its all propaganda. I think we have a lot more important Thursday, December 3, 2009 Page 3 things to try to straighten dut . such as American citizens losing their jobs, losing their homes, children in the US going to bed hungry, our precious veterahs being homeless and a to~al break-down of morals and "political correctness" run amdk. These things are what our leaders need to try to "fix." My God created this world and I think he is still in control of our "global warming" or "global .cooling". I lose sleep over a lot of things but global warming certainly isn't one of them. tf you disagree with me I respect your views too and hope you will still read my little column next week - maybe it will be about something we can all agree on!
