He didn't wait until the last minute. He used the sunny days to get himself ready.
He used those bright days to build up the resources he would need when the rain and the floods came later. In his story, we learn many important things about his faith, gratitude, and spiritual strength. But the question is, "How do we get there? The whole earth suffered the consequences of human action. The message we can take from the story is that God is not causing climate change - it is humanity failing in our responsibilities to each other and to creation.

The story of the flood as a drastic act of cleansing in response to humanity out of control is also found in the Eastern traditions, although without the same historical significance. There is a Buddhist version of the flood story, a "Tale of Merchants at Sea" and a Hindu version of Noah's Arke about the first incarnation of the Vishnu. A second interpretation can be found in the Eastern concept of 'aggregates' — meaning the sum of all parts. The ark is made up of many parts. No part by itself is the ark, but together they make up the ark.
Climate Change Fantasy: A Modern Noah’s Ark
The ark only exists through the interdependent relationships of its various parts, much like the earth's ecological systems. Because of this interconnectedness, our actions have consequences for ourselves and others. For example, as huge volumes of greenhouse gas emissions are released into the atmosphere right across the world, glaciers in the Himalayas begin to disappear, robbing millions of people and animals of a secure drinking source.
ARRCC also has another interpretation for the ark which illustrates the urgent need for climate action.
Noah Built His Ark In The Sunshine
Think of the climate as an ark on a choppy ocean. Under normal circumstances the boat rocks to and fro, and there is a risk it could be overturned by a rogue wave. But now a group of passengers has decided to stand up and deliberately rock the ark.
multipart.biz/includes/467/tyw-sayti-znakomstv.php Someone suggests that this is likely to increase the chances of capsizing. Soon another passenger proposes that with his knowledge of chaotic dynamics he can counterbalance the passengers rocking the ark — along with the natural rocking caused by the waves. But to do so this passenger needs an array of sensors and technical resources. Furthermore, he can't guarantee this untested system will work and not make things worse. Is the answer to a known and increasing human influence on climate an ever more elaborate system to control the climate?
Or should the people rocking the ark just sit down? Together we inhabit the earth, our 'planet ark', as we journey through life.
