GLOBAL WARMING, 2 PETER 3

I heard today that 60% of the United States is covered with snow. All the while, the United Nations is holding conferences to combat global warming. Knowing the Bible, there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. Personally, I'm not worried about the dire warnings that man is destroying the planet with CO2 because I know that God is the one that will destroy it. Peter writes,
"But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up." (2 Pt. 3:7-10)
It's not that man shouldn't be a good steward of this planet, but I'm confident that life will go on on this planet until Jehovah decides to end it. I don't agree with the dire warnings that a 1/2 degree rise in temperature is ending life, but it will be much hotter when it all ends.

For Global Warming proponents:
- Al Gore says the earth has a fever. How does one know that the earth has a fever without first know what is the optimum global temperature? To know the earth has a fever, like with the human body where 98.6 degrees is normal, don't you have to first know what is the "normal" temperature of the earth?
- How is the average global temperature determined? Like with the human body, does the earth have a "right spot", under the tongue so to speak, for reading the earth's temperature?
- If global warming is raising the levels of the oceans, how can anyone know that the new level isn't the right level? Because the rising level would be slow, most everyone would have time to get to higher ground and the most painful loss would be in waterfront property.
