It's Gettin' Hot in Here

'An Inconvenient Truth' Documents Al Gore's Efforts To Raise Alarm on Effects of Global Warming

PARK CITY, Utah -- Has ever a little indie film faced a greater hurdle? Imagine this sales pitch: Babe, it's a movie about global warming. Starring Al Gore. Doing a slide show. With charts.

Believe it or not, Al Gore and Sundance Films have put together a little movie to evangelize America about global warming and the inevitable destruction of civilization. Well, it’s supposedly inevitable unless we stop using gas powered automobiles and a few other things. Not only does he say that this issue is the most important item on the world’s agenda, he claims that we may only have ten years left to stop the snowball, and that we may only have as little as fifty years left as a human race. The film is called 'An Inconvenient Truth,' and it’s playing in select areas.

I admire his gumption, but I’m pretty sure that it’s time wasted. As followers of Christ we know how it will end, and it won’t be because of global warming, but because of sin. Ford, Chevy, and even imports like Nissan and Toyota can rest easy, because since the fall of Adam the end of the world has always been inevitable. It’s not their fault.

The end may come within the next ten years, but it may not be for another ten thousand. Either way, I love knowing that God has let me in on what’s seemingly becoming His little secret.
