Glob, er, No Solar Warming!?

Why do we still call it "Global Warming" when it's bigger then the globe? If the polar ice caps on Mars are melting, shouldn't we call it "Solar Warming" instead?

When you have a "House Warming" party, you don't isolate one room and call it by that room. We don't call it a "Living Room Warming" because that is where the majority of the people will be. We don't call it a "Drive Way Warming" because that is where all of the SUV's are. And we certainly don't call it a "Bathroom Warming" party (even if there is an increase in the methane level there). We call it a "House Warming" party.

Therefore, we should broaden the scope of the warming warning. If we do that, perhaps we can try some of the fad fixes on a smaller scale to see if they work first. Before we subject the USA to the proposed draconian measures of the Kyoto Kra, er,... I mean accord, let's ban all SUV's and/or even all emissions on Mars. If the polar ice caps there come back, then we can start these measure on earth.

As a God fearing Steward of His handiwork, I have a responsibility to care for this planet in the best way that I can. However, this does not mean submitting to the worshipers of Gaia. They, NOT believing in a God that is bigger then themselves, feel that it all depends upon them. They want to control from a position of fear because they fear their future. On the other hand, as a Christian, I know that my future is secure in Him. I am accountable unto Him for all of my actions, but my future is His. And being who He is, that is secure. So, I shall call it Solar Warming in an effort to remember that this climate issue is not all about us but that God has a plan for all of us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
(John 3:16 NKJV)
