Cloud control for global warming according to Meteorologist Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as reported in Nature Science Update 7 Mar 2001. Lindzen studied sea surface temperatures and cloud formations over the Pacific Ocean and found that when the sea surface is warmer there is less cirrus cloud. Cirrus clouds do not reflect sunlight back into space and they also trap heat from the earth below them. If there are fewer cirrus clouds heat will escape from the earth slowing the rate of global warming.

Editorial Comment: After Noah’s flood God promised (Genesis 821,22) the earth would have seasonal cycles until the end of the world. Do not be intimidated by threats that our industrial or farming activities can bring about the end of the world. We have the responsibility to be good stewards of the earth, but the world will not end because of any human activity. The world will end only when Jesus Christ comes to finally judge the earth (2 Peter 310-13). (Ref. clouds, global warming, climate)
