Global warming - or Bible prophecy?

Scientists and other doomsayers have been telling us that our use of fossil fuel is causing the earth to get warmer. They call us to give up our American way of life and get back to nature by walking, riding bicycles, and just staying home when we don't have to go out and drive. Many conservative talking heads and some religious leaders have disputed the global warming concept. So is there global warming or not?

Professor Bill Gray of Colorado State University says that global warming exists but that it is not caused by us. This is an interesting middle ground between the two opposing sides.

As Christians, we know that this was all predicted nearly 2,000 years ago by the Apostle John.

Revelation 16:8–9
8The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people with fire. 9They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. They did not repent and give him glory.

I don't know if global warming is the preparation for this great heat that will be part of the Great Tribulation, but it certainly may be. And I think Professor Gray has it right. We are not as important as we like to think. God is still in control of the temperature. And man should tremble in fear of Almighty God instead of congratulating himself on how much damage he has done to the planet.
