13 federal government agencies released a report with dire warnings about climate change. The report concludes that extreme hot weather is getting more common, and cold weather more rare; That sea levels will continue to rise and that forest fires will intensify. Climate change has been a contentious issue which raises questions and tempers. How much is caused by mankind? And how much occurs naturally? This is still being debated, but we can say with certainty that the earth is a gift and the Creator makes each of us to be good caretakers of it. This doesn't mean we worship it but rather we carefully use natural resources and try to be efficient with our energy needs. If we treat the earth as God's gift to us, there's no doubt it'll be a better place.
