From senatorial snowballs to energy company campaigns, discussions of climate change are often the breading ground for ill-informed opinions that alter the actions of everyday Americans. While climate discussions are imperative to the overall issue, it is important that we receive the correct information regarding climate change.
Instead of ignoring these misconceptions about climate change, the online publication, Good Housing Keeping, decided to address some the more commonly held myths about climate change, such as, "Living "green" takes too much effort and cost" and "It's all a natural cycle; humans can't affect something as big as Earth."
Correcting misconceptions about climate change is important, not only for the welfare of humans, but to maintain the biblical teaching of integrity as displayed in 2 Corinthians 8:21:
"For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man."
Myth #1: If global warming were an issue, blizzards would be on the wane.
FACT: We're seeing stronger blizzards because of global warming. As the air, land and sea get warmer, more water evaporates. So when a storm comes along, there's more water to pick up and dump, meaning more snow when it's cold out.
