Yes, global temperatures are rising, says a new video documentary, but itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s not because of manmade carbon dioxide gases as former Vice President Al Gore insists.
ItĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s because Earth has been warming slowly but surely ever since NoahĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Flood 5,000 years ago, says a retired geophysicist and climate researcher in the video.
In Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Miraculous Messages: From NoahĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Flood to the End Times,Ă˘â‚¬Âť the latest release from Grizzly Adams Productions, John Baumgardner, who spent 12 years working on a Global Ocean Model at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and was directly involved with climate research, does not dispute the EarthĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s experience of increasingly warmer temperatures. But he contends the primary cause is not related to manĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s burning of coal and oil.
Baumgardner notes that the Earth has experienced warming and cooling cycles several times since NoahĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Flood approximately 5,000 years ago. One such period was from AD 900 to AD 1300.
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“During that time the Vikings colonized Greenland, and abundant farming, grasslands, herds, and even vineyards were present in Greenland,Ă˘â‚¬Âť he says. The Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Little Ice AgeĂ˘â‚¬Âť followed this warm period. In AD 1600, during this period, the Thames River in London froze.
With unmistakable evidence of significant variations in global temperature over the past 2,000 years, the current warming is Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“not out of range,Ă˘â‚¬Âť Baumgardner explains. Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Current warming actually started in 1800 and accelerated during the 20th century, so now weĂ˘â‚¬â„˘re about a degree warmer than we were 100 years ago.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Miraculous MessagesĂ˘â‚¬Âť looks at additional factors that affect climate cycles. According to Baumgardner, recent research indicates a connection between the amount of solar (magnetic) activity on the sun and the average temperature of the EarthĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s surface.
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Currently solar activity is high,Ă˘â‚¬Âť he says. Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“There are fewer cosmic rays reaching into the atmosphere and, as a result, less clouds and higher temperatures.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
Walt Brown, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel, a mechanical engineer from MIT, and the former chief of science and technology studies at the Air War College, is another scientist featured in Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Miraculous Messages.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
According to Brown, it is inevitable that man contributes to some global warming, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“but the amount is probably not large and no one really knows the extent.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
The documentary explores how Noah built his massive Ark, the number of animals aboard, and where the Ark landed, based on research from scientists in various fields. In addition, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Miraculous MessagesĂ˘â‚¬Âť explains in depth how a catastrophic worldwide flood could have happened and the current evidences left behind from this event Ă˘â‚¬â€ś 25 mysterious anomalies found on Earth.
