WHILE I do not doubt that the planet is getting warming and that climate change is increasing, my reasons why are not the usual, standard scientific answers -- mine go far beyond pollution and gas emissions by mankind.
I believe that increasing sin and permissiveness are the main reasons behind strange weather, warmer temperatures and even perhaps more earthquake activity.
Doctrine in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints portrays the entire planet Earth as one giant living entity. (D&C 88:25-26). The Earth even has a spirit and at least some intelligence.
LDS Church Scriptures state that the Earth is groaning under the weight of sin by mankind.
Doctrine and Covenants section 123, verse 7 states:
"The whole earth groans under the weight of its (mankind's) iniquity."
The Doctrine and Covenants Section 88, verse 25 states:
"The earth abideth the law of a celestial kingdom, for it filleth the measure of its creation, and transgresseth not the law—."
(Find me one scientist who incorporates these Scriptures into any scientific understanding of the Earth itself!)
It is mankind who is imperfect and sins and there is more sin on Earth now than ever before -- even in the days of Noah before the Great Flood.
Yes, man's pollution is partially contributing to warmer temperatures and weather problems, but sin is the primary factor as the Earth itself is obviously not happy with man's lack of obedience to a Celestial Law -- likely even being physically sickened by this iniquity that is at an all-time high.
Most of mankind fails to see or even recognize the spiritual side to his own existence (and that of the Earth itself) and as such is not privy to the true secrets of the universe and science.
The Earth itself is destined to be the Celestial Kingdom in the future and so it is sacred ground, to be treated with respect.
