51. Climate is a self-regulating system

No one doubts that the level of carbon dioxide has increased since the 19th century or that this leads to increased global average temperature, measurements and observations in ice and sea sediments show this. But measurements also show that there are natural fluctuations of more than 100 ppm and that nature and the atmosphere is a self-regulating system. The ice sheet builds up at Ice Age and when the temperature rises, the melting ice cools down the increasingly heated seas and works a bit like a thermostat in an ordinary car. Ocean currents change the direction because of temperature changes and if the North Atlantic Current of the Gulf Stream were to end, there would be several degrees colder in the Nordic and British islands, which would counteract the melting of the Arctic ice.
Increased temperature in the oceans leads to stronger low pressure with increased cloudiness and stronger winds. The cloud formation shields the earth from the sun radiation, which inhibits the warming. And the winds bring up dust in the atmosphere, which also filters away energy from inhalation. Along with smoke from the increased number of forest fires from areas with prolonged drought.
There are many self-regulating mechanisms like these. But the deeper and more extensive low pressures will also lead to destruction and flooding. While forests and settlements will be burned down in the hinterland and in high-altitude terrain, floods on rivers and coasts will drowning crops and settlements and destroy drinking water resources. And then the darkness comes. The clouds and dust shield of the earth may after a long cooling process end up with a new Ice Age. Which would be needed as the ice since the mid of the 19th century has melted at an ever increasing rate. And inland ice is not only temperature regulating but a vital freshwater resource.
The energy supplement would largely consist of different forms of destructive kinetic energy. In the end, the temperatures will fall and the winds will slow down and eventually the shielding cloud and dust layers will dissolve and the sunshine will once again reach the earth's surface. And a new, more stable climate era starts with new ice resources.

Now, compare with this: 
24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
24:22  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 
24:29  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: (St Matthew) 
13:19  For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.13:20  And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. (St Mark)
21:25  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
21:26  Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (St Luke)
