In “Floodgates,” I warn that global warming is a real threat to humanity, but not in the way it is usually presented. And the worst cause is not so much our environmental pollution as our moral pollution. That is, mankind’s growing moral rebellion against our Maker will soon lead to the fiery wrath of geothermal activity from below and burning objects from above, as described in Isaiah 24 and throughout the Book of Revelation, among other ominous biblical passages. This is the irony of Darwinism: the more we revere Nature above God, the more we consign the earth to destruction.
Now comes a study from NASA which concludes that the major cause of melt-off of the West Antarctic ice shelf is not man-made climate change, but a geothermal lava plume boiling up from underneath the frozen continent. Apparently, there numerous places under the Antarctic region where volcanic activity and lava floes are heating the ice and seas from beneath. The NASA research shows that bottom melting, which lubricates the underside of glaciers and creates underground lakes and rivers, has a far greater influence on ice loss than atmospheric global warming. There were multiple media reports on this in late 2017, including on the sites for Principia Scientific International and for Forbes magazine.
In the Flood of Noah, the “windows of heaven” above and the fountains of the deep below opened up to let in the deluge of water which swept away the ancient world. Today, what lies beneath our feet is not oceans of water but a sea of molten lava, and the threat is that the same gateways as in the Flood will now open up to allow in what the Bible consistently describes as the fiery wrath of God.
