More than 60 million people are under ‘heat alert’ with cities in the Northeast seeing their warmest temperatures in a decade. Dallas has now topped triple digits 40 times this year; double the annual average. With the ever-changing climate, more communities are being displaced like those of the Chocktaw Nation who received $50 million in a federal grant to help more to higher ground.

Isaiah 24:1-23

“Behold how the Lord is preparing to lay waste the earth; he will turn it into a desert and scatter its inhabitants, with the same fate afflicting both priest and people, slave and master, maid and mistress, seller and buyer, lender and borrower, creditor and debtor.

The earth will be totally ravaged and completely despoiled; this has the Lord decreed. The earth mourns and fades away; the world languishes and withers; the exalted of the earth are brought low.

The earth is defiled by those who dwell in it; for they have transgressed laws, violated statutes, and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse has consumed the earth, and its inhabitants pay the penalty of their guilt; as a result, the number of its inhabitants dwindles, and only a few survive .

The new wine dries up and the vine withers away as the revelers groan in their sorrow. The cheerful sound of tambourines is stilled; the shouts of the revelers fade away; the lyre’s joyful melodies are no longer heard. The people drink wine but without any singing; strong liquor tastes bitter to those who consume it.

The city is shattered and in a state of chaos; every house has its entrance barred. In the streets the people cry out for wine; no joy can be observed; happiness seems to have been banished from the land. Only desolation remains in the city; its gates have been smashed so badly that they are beyond hope of repair.

This condition will hold true among all the nations throughout the world; as happens to an olive tree after it is beaten or to the gleanings that remain after the grape harvest. The people raise their voices in joyful praise, proclaiming from the west the majesty of the Lord, “Let the Lord be glorified in the east; in the coastlands of the sea glorify the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.”

From the ends of the earth we hear songs that praise the glory of the Righteous One .

But I said, “I am wasting away. I am wasting away. Woe is me! For the traitors continue to betray; the traitors have acted with great treachery.

Terror and the pit and the snare threaten all of you inhabitants of the earth. Anyone who flees from the sound of terror will fall into the pit, and whoever climbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare. For the windows of heaven will be opened and the foundations of the earth will shake. The earth will be totally shattered, the earth will be torn apart the earth will be violently convulsed. The earth will stagger like a drunkard and sway like a fragile hut; its transgressions will weigh heavily upon it, and it will fall, never to rise again.”

On that day the Lord will punish in the heavens the host of the heavens, and on the earth the kings of the earth. They will be herded together, jammed in like prisoners in a dungeon. They will be shut up in a pit and punished after many years. Then the moon will seem to fade away and the sun will hide in shame.

For the Lord of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and he will manifest his glory to the elders of his people.”

Isaiah 30: 25-33

In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall, streams of water will flow on every high mountain and every lofty hill. The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the Lord binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted.

See, the Name of the Lord comes from afar, with burning anger and dense clouds of smoke; his lips are full of wrath, and his tongue is a consuming fire. His breath is like a rushing torrent, rising up to the neck. He shakes the nations in the sieve of destruction; he places in the jaws of the peoples a bit that leads them astray.

And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people playing pipes go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.

The Lord will cause people to hear his majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail.

The voice of the Lord will shatter Assyria; with his rod he will strike them down. Every stroke the Lord lays on them with his punishing club will be to the music of timbrels and harps, as he fights them in battle with the blows of his arm.

Topheth has long been prepared; it has been made ready for the king. Its fire pit has been made deep and wide, with an abundance of fire and wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of burning sulfur, sets it ablaze.”

The United States, with its love of big cars, big houses and blasting air-conditioners, has contributed more than any other country to the atmospheric carbon dioxide that is scorching the planet. China has four times as many people as the United States, so the Chinese still burn far less fossil fuel on average than Americans — less than half as much, in fact. The typical American also burns roughly twice as much as the average person in Europe or in Japan, and 10 times as much as the average person in India. Sorry but that's the truth

I would more say that the current weather trends warn of the dangers of geo-engineering.

Chris The Science Guy August 6, 2022 - 9:22 AM

I don’t think people understand that the human body can’t withstand temperatures above 100 degrees or anything above 98.6 degrees. Prolonged exposure to temperatures like 102-104 degrees can be fatal just like when you are fighting a fever 🥵 from a virus/infection.

Lawrence Rogers August 6, 2022 - 9:42 AM
