This is my response to Christopher Calder in regards climate change and "end times." His original article is in regular print; my replies are in bold, italic. 

It is becoming increasingly clear to me that what is now commonly referred to as "Climate Change," a.k.a. global warming, has become a faith-based doomsday religion.  The Left has embraced Climate Change philosophy with a certain amount of glee.    

Support for this? It is the most depressing issue facing humankind, from virtually anyone who has studied the issue.  

Climate Change proves that free markets are bad, that governments know best, and that industrialized society is somehow sinful.  But if one looks at the actual facts, it is certain that government efforts to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions have largely been economic, environmental, and humanitarian disasters.  In addition, greenhouse-gas emissions have increased worldwide despite all the rules, regulations, and costly renewable energy projects.  

There are so many assumptions in here that it is painful to read. I do not see one ounce of support for anything, except, from countless articles I've read, that governments have done virtually nothing serious to reduce greenhouse emissions.  

It is generally accepted in the scientific community that the Earth has not warmed since about 1998,  

One link here to a bona fide source would revamp understanding of the world .  

yet greenhouse-gas emissions have significantly increased since then, an acceleration due in part to biofuel farming, which has dramatically increased the production of CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide, all greenhouse gases.  So why did global warming stop in 1998 while greenhouse-gas emissions accelerated?    

See comment above, kindly provide link that may be actually examined and responded to.  

Where I live in Oregon, we have had a long string of cool years, one right after another, with below-normal rainfall.  Global-warming theory predicts that Oregon should be getting much warmer and wetter, not cooler and dryer.    

The term "global warming" was changed to "climate change" to accommodate folks who make these kinds of statements and demonstrate that they do not understand the concept of varying conditions in various places.  

Something is wrong with global-warming theory as stated by Al Gore and others, and I know this by simply stepping outside and feeling the record-breaking low temperatures.    

Please see above comment.  

The tactics of Climate Change true believers are getting interesting.  They keep changing the advertised symptoms of global warming, which now mysteriously includes unusual cooling.  No matter what the weather is doing, Climate Change alarmists can find an explanation that shows that human-created pollution is at fault.  Any weather forecast has thus become a win-win validation of their belief system.  

Utterly unsupported paragraph.
