What We Can Learn From the Chilling Power Outage in Texas
Are You Prepared for a Natural Disaster?
The February 15 polar vortex that blanketed most of Texas is a warning to everyone watching to prepare for increasing natural disasters. As Texas works to restore electricity to over 4 million residents, the energy-rich giant explores the root cause of the recent power surge.
The federal government has long mandated statewide reduction of carbon emissions which are used to create electricity. In addition, Texas usually averages between 61–41 degrees in February, and simply was not prepared for the frigid temperatures impacting the rolling blackouts.
Consequently, what happened in Texas could affect 49 other states throughout America and abroad.
In an address to the nation, President Biden cautioned of a ‘Dark Winter’ ahead.
Like most, many assume the Dark Winter is synonymous with the pandemic, but those with hindsight will read between the lines.
The earth’s reduction of trees and plants is a serious problem as a looming abundance of carbon dioxide increases across the world.
Why is this important?
Plants, trees, and other botanicals help reduce carbon dioxide in the air. Without plants, or trees, the carbon dioxide level will rise to unsafe numbers.
The 2013 movie starring Will Smith, After Earth, explored the concept of Earth being an unlivable planet.
In the movie After Earth, citizens were forced to relocate from Earth to a fictional planet in the cosmos because of man-made causations that destroyed the earth.
The cool thing about film is its ability to tell-a-vision.
Climate change in many aspects is the vision.
What is Global Warming and why is it important?
Global warming, or climate change, is a steady increase in the general temperature of the earth’s atmosphere credited to the decline of trees or plants which reduce carbon dioxide.
Unsafe levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other air pollutants absorb sunlight and solar radiation that bounce off the earth’s surface.
Historically, the radiation produced would discharge into space, instead, the pollutants trap heat and prompt the planet to get warmer.
What are the effects of Climate Change?
The surplus of the Earth’s carbon dioxide and biblical prophecy will bring about a permanent change in the way we live. As a result, there will likely be an increase in hurricanes, storms, and plagues, that will push healthcare, electrical grids, and our food supply to their limits.
Here’s a snippet of what to expect:
· Melting glaciers, early snowmelt, and serious drought will cause water shortages.
· Rising sea levels will lead to coastal flooding.
· Agriculture and fishing will be damaged by pests, heat waves, and increased flooding.
· Allergies, asthma, and infectious disease outbreaks will become more common due to increased growth of pollen-producing ragweed, higher levels of air pollution, and the spread of disease producing pathogens and mosquitoes. Sounds like a chapter in Revelations, right?
The Dark Winter could be a solution to slow the warming of our planet, or perhaps biblical prophecy is imminent.
The final chapter of the Christian Bible, Revelation, unveils the destruction of the world, and considering everything that is happening, it seems safe to assume some events are inevitable and cannot be regulated.
Does that mean we should stop trying to control Global Warming? Absolutely not.
We can do our part by reducing the burning of fossil fuels that make electricity, reduce the coal burning power plants, as well as our dependency on natural gas, and most important — save the trees.
How to prepare for man-made and natural disasters?
Keep a supply of candles, generators, can-openers, water, and non-perishable food items available. Have an emergency plan of action for yourself and your family. Keep a supply of gas, and kerosene available as well as blankets, toilet paper, soap, and essential medication and first aid.
And while the apocalypse may not happen today or even tomorrow, science and biblical prophecy predict it will occur, so be ready.
