Global warming is a contested topic in our society today. The discussion about this issue is found among the people of all sectors. Even the religious class is not exempted from it. People of faith, especially Christians, strengthen their position in their sacred book – the Bible. Christians explained the term our society now refers to as Global Warming. It has been broadly explained in the Bible for a long time (without the use of the actual term itself). You may read more on that here.
