No, one bad-ass summer doesn’t prove climate change. However, climate change isn’t just about global warming; it’s about climates becoming more extreme, and that means colder and snowier in some areas too. Warming conditions in parts of the world increase the amount of water vapor in the air, and then when winter hits, storms and temperature lows are more extreme.
As Christians, we NEED to take better care of the planet God has created, not just for us, but for ALL of His creation, flora and fauna alike. We have a responsibility to be better stewards, not a right to use up resources simple because we can.
