Earlier this month, famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough told a Parliament select committee that elected officials “cannot be radical enough in dealing with” the problem of climate change. They need to take more drastic action, he argued.
Creationist Ken Ham isn’t a fan of Attenborough. He regards all of the man’s narrated documentaries as “evolutionary propaganda programs.” But what does Ham think about the seriousness of climate change?
He doesn’t. He never thinks. Instead, he says that we’ve been through climate changes before, therefore it’s not going to be a problem in the future.
Good god, the man’s ignorance is going to destroy our entire species.
… there’s been climate change in the past. Of course, the biggest climate change was the global flood of Noah’s day about 4,350 years ago. This flood destroyed the world that then was and upset the climate, including creating the perfect conditions for an ice age following the flood. The world has been settling down since that flood.
While he acknowledges that we must take care of what (he thinks) God created, he dismisses all talk of climate change as “alarmist” and driven by agendas and grants, not actual science… Even though real scientists — the kind who would never step foot in one of Ham’s attractions except to mock it — are well aware of the unique threat we’re currently facing. Somehow, Ham insists he knows better than scientists whose entire careers are dedicated to dealing with the environment.
Maybe the scariest thing is that Ham’s article, like so many of them, was “written with the assistance of AiG’s research team.” He needed help to spread this much ignorance. Not that we should be surprised that the Answers in Genesis researchers don’t know what they’re talking about. It’s the prerequisite to working for Ham.
