12 The Julian News July 23, 2014 Questions & Answers About Our Environment Dear Earth Talk: Why are wildfires on the increase and what Can be done to stop them from happening? -- Sandy Heffran, Albuquerque, NM increase evaporation rates and encourage desertification. Also, as snowpacks melt earlier and summer temperatures rise to new heights, the length of the "fire season" is extending. Meanwhile, warming-induced insect infestations and other problems are ravaging many forests, turning once teeming ecosystems into tinderboxes. And the increased frequency of lightning as thunder storms become more severe only exacerbates the situation. Regardless of who is right, we can all help reduce or prevent wildfires. According to Smokey Bear, the federal government's mascot for wildfire prevention since the 1940s, those of us living in or visiting fire-prone areas should take extra precautions when burning anything outdoors. The campfire safety page of Smokey Bear's website outlines how to build and extinguish campfires properly to minimize wildfire risks, and provides lots of other relevant tips on how to stay There's no question that wildfires are on the increase across the American West and other fire-prone regions of the world, and most environmental leaders agree that global warming is largely to blame. In a recent study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, researchers from the University of Utah analyzed a database of large wildfires in the western U.S. between 1984 and 2011 and found a significant increase in the number of large fires and/or the area covered by the blazes. From Nebraska to California, the number of large wildfires increased sevenfold per year over the study period, with the total area burned increasing by 90,000 acres a year on average. "Wildfire trends in the West are clear: There are more large fires burning now than at any time in the past 40 years and the total area burned each year Wildfires are on the rise across the American West and Other fire-prone regions of the world, and most environmentalists agree that global warming is largely to blame. But some scientists point out that poor forest management and fire suppression practices over the last century have allowed 'fuels '" to build up on forest floors, making the fires that do get started that much harder to quell or contain. Noteveryone agrees that global warming is causing the increase in wildfires. Professor David B.

Ask Pastor Rick In The News Muslim Group Sues Canadian Prime Minister For Defamation The National Council of Canadian Muslims [NCCM] is suing Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for defamation, alleging his spokesman linked the group to terrorism in January. The suit seeks a retraction and $100,000 in damages. NCCM leaders criticized Harper for including Rabbi Daniel Korobkin, who hosted anti-Muslim bloggers Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, at an event last fall in Toronto. The prime minister's communications director, Jason MacDonald, responded by saying, "We will not take seriously criticism from an organization with documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas ' Hamas is listed as a terrorist organization in Canada. Reached by email, MacDonald, who is also named in the suit, declined to comment. The council wanted to give Harper time to either retract the comments or offer evidence proving them. After receiving neither, the group filed the suit. NCCM officials claim it has consistently condemned terrorism. The council was affiliated with the Council on American-Islamic Relations and was known as CAIR-CAN until last year, when it changed its name, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hopper said a court ruling in favor of the council, which is independent from CAIR in the United States, could have an impact in the U.S. Source: The Washington Post, summarized by Pastor Rick Ask Pastor Rick How can I reconcile my belief in the inerrancy of Scripture with comments in Bible translations that state that a particular verse is not in better manuscripts? The New Testament manuscripts were hand copied until the invention of the printing press in the 15th century. If you ever hand copied anything, you know how easy it is to drop some words or entire lines, or to repeat lines. That happened with the early copyists too. LikewiSe, a copyist may have made a marginal note to amplify a word, and the next copyist made it a part of the text, thinking that was where it belonged. Since the copying was done reverently, manuscripts vary little overall, except for the occasional "slippage" of this kind. So, manuscript comparison reveals passages that clearly need correcting at this level of detail. We believe the earlier manuscripts to be "better," being nearer to the original. That being said, Holy Scripture is, according to the view of Jesus continued on page 14 li 3223 Hickman PI Julian, CA 92036 See Photos on www.Zillow.com 'I me Priced to Sell $699,000 Custom Gourmet Kitchen Kitchen w/Fireplace and Nook Granite Countertops Dumbwaiter - Garage to Pantry ' Whole House Water Filtration Hand Crafted Built-ins 3492 Sq.
