Please remain calm...

“Please remain calm: The Earth will heal itself - climate is beyond our power to control . . . Earth doesn’t care about governments or their legislation. You can’t find much actual global warming in present-day weather observations. Climate change is a matter of geologic time, something that the earth routinely does on its own without asking anyone’s permission or explaining itself.”
Robert Laughlin, Physicist, Nobel Prize winner (1998), Professor of Physics and Applied Physics, Stanford University, USA.

Click on the post title to read his full article, from Canada's Globe & Mail, and then make yourself a nice cup of tea and relax. While you do so, you may like to ponder how God's active preservation of the world (conservatio mundi; cf. Hebrews 1:3, Col 1:17) might actually be responsible for the processes Dr Laughlin refers to as "the earth healing itself".
