Hal Lindsey: Belief in Global Warming a Sign of the End Times

Hal Lindsey is on top form at WorldNetDaily:

It was hot air all along

When Al Gore first published his tome, “Earth in the Balance” in 1990, few people, if any, believed in global warming. It was a trendy cause; after all, who wouldn’t want to help save the planet – especially if America is the problem.

…Unfortunately, now that Al Gore has convinced the U.N., the Democrats, Barack Obama (and even John McCain, if it would have helped) that catastrophic global warming presents a very real threat, actual, real climate scientists with slide-rules and computer models are starting to inundate us with facts.

About 650 of them from around the world have joined Stanley Goldenberg, an atmospheric scientist at NOAA, who wrote in a report to the IPCC: “It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.”

It’s still the end of the world, though – the Bible predicts that in the Last Days people will believe in untrue things like global warming:

Jesus said that in the last days, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.” 

That is pretty much the exact description of the Doctrine of the Global Warming True Believers.

Gore’s failure can be contrasted with Lindsey’s far more successful efforts at predicting the future. A blog called Paleo-Future reminds us of Lindsey’s opus The 1980s: Countdown to Armageddon, which contains gems such as:

The alignment of the planets will cause weather pattern shifts. (p. 28)

UFOs are real and, “demons will stage a human spacecraft landing on earth.” (p. 33)

Communism in the U.S.S.R. will overtake American dominace on the world stage. (p. 81)

The U.S. itself will be “taken over by communists.” (p.132)

The U.S. could be “destroyed by a surprise Soviet nuclear attack.” (p.132)

The U.S. could “become a dependent of the 10-nation European confederacy.” (p. 132)
