If you are truly worried about the effects a warming planet will have on future generations, relax; the Big Guy Upstairs has it all under control.
A video of Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) is making its way around the Internet. In the two-and-a-half minute clip (posted below), Shimkus uses scripture to explain his belief that the Earth will end only when, “God declares it is time to be over.” Shimkus then continues to quote the Book of Mark, saying: “Man will not destroy this Earth, and this Earth will not be destroyed by a flood.”
Shimkus’ quotes refer directly to the Bible story of the great flood. If I remember correctly, God was unhappy with humanity because they were being jerks, so he decided to flood them out. But God thought Noah was a good guy, so he advised Noah to help humanity and all the creatures of the world survive (excluding unicorns) by building an ark.
After his Capitol Hill Bible study, Shimkus went on to talk about how carbon levels in the atmosphere were much higher during the time of the dinosaurs. Shimkus did not have any quotes from the Bible about what caused their demise.
