France’s Macron takes lead in climate change battle, with the U.S. absent


WAPO: The United States may have withdrawn from the Paris climate change accord, but on Tuesday dozens of world leaders and philanthropists met to find solutions to the swiftly warming planet — and send a message of resolve to the White House.

More symbolic than policy-driven, Tuesday’s summit comes two years after the landmark COP21 conference in Paris, when 196 participating countries — including the United States — vowed to keep this century’s global temperature increase below 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. In one of the most controversial moments of his young presidency, President Trump announced in June that the United States would leave the Paris accord.

The United States is now the only nation on Earth to have rejected the global pact. more …

Opinion: The alt-left Washington Post neglected to mention that the Paris Accord had little to do with reducing warming and everything to do with bankrupting the world’s lone superpower, or that the US leads the world in reducing carbon emissions (here).

But let God’s word speak for who is in charge of climate:

Genesis 8:22: “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night, Shall not cease.”

Job 37:11 -13: Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; He scatters His bright clouds. And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, That they may do whatever He commands them On the face of the whole earth. He causes it to come, Whether for correction, Or for His land, Or for mercy.”

Amos 4:7-8: “I also withheld rain from you, When there were still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city. One part was rained upon, And where it did not rain the part withered. So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water, But they were not satisfied; Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the Lord.”

As much as men would love to believe that they are able to control weather, they cannot. Our post from last week (here) how God withheld rain from the promised land while the Jews were in exile stands as evidence:

“And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.”  Deuteronomy 28:23-24

The Lord God Almighty is His name.
