Natural causes of climate change
1. Increasing Volcano Eruptions
Scientists argue that natural causes have been underestimated. For example, the increasing volcano eruptions have been altering sea level pressure around the North Atlantic.
As a result, a kick-start of ‘chain mechanism’ resulted in El Niño and stronger typhoons that hit tropical countries like the Philippines.
2. Abnormal Solar Fluctuations
The cause of Artic melting was a natural occurrence and will expand again in the next three decades. In other words, the ice melting is not caused by carbon emission but solar flares.
3. Medieval Warming & Ice Age
The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) also known as the Medieval Climate Optimum, or Medieval Climatic Anomaly was a time of warm climate in the North Atlantic region lasting from c. 950 to c. 1250. [Mann 2009]
4. Internal Variability
Interactions within the system itself also cause climate change. An example is the El Niño–La Niña phenomenon. These patterns repeat themselves on a cycle and timescale. Arctic oscillation (AO) affected by air pressure leaves the Arctic either colder or warmer than usual.
Other factors to consider are the earth’s orbital changes that affect ocean currents, which affect the global climate.
5. Milankovitch Cycle
Milutin Milankovitch was a Serbian astrophysicist credited for the theory of Milankovitch cycles. These are the small changes in the Earth’s orbit as it circles the Sun. These changes gave rise to the past Ice Ages.
The variations of eccentricity, axial tilt, and precession of the earth’s orbit resulted in cyclical variation in the solar radiation reaching the Earth. This “orbital forcing” strongly influences the natural climatic changes on earth.

The Bible warns us of “end times.” It doesn’t say if it’s climate change, asteroid, or nuclear bomb. If God hadn’t intervened, humankind would be wiped out (Matthew 24:22).
Our world can end in 12 years or as long as another century. Jesus said nobody knows except our Father in heaven (Matthew 24:36). This world isn’t falling apart, but everything is falling into place.
