I'm a writer too. :) For fun, I like to write Bible Fanfiction. LOL. I like to tell the stories from rational and irrational points-of-view.

Actually, it was writing that finally led me to conclude that the bible was crap. I was writing a story about a young woman who lived during the time of Noah's flood. I was a complete and literal believer in that flood. So I did some research to try and help me construct the 'pre-flood' world---and well, you know, science trumped.

Actually, as a writer, I COULD make this up, but I did not! lol
 
This sort of ignorance--or rather, the electorate's TOLERANCE of such ignorance could only come from religion.  Bible-believin' old-timey wrath of God love of Jeeeeesus religion. 
 
God uses the wind in order to moderate global temperatures?  Uh, well, ALMOST there! lol  It is actually the exact opposite.  The variation in absorption and reflection of the SUN's heat by the Earth's surface (forests absorb, ice sheets reflect) causes warmed air to rise and cooler air to drop.  It is then the rotation of the planet that causes the movement and interaction of this air, which we call "wind". 
 
As Lawrence Krauss has stated, no need for supernatural shenanigans!
