Climate Skeptics Descend on Vatican – Seek to Influence Pope on ‘Global Warming’

Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano will be part of a high level skeptical delegation with the Heartland Institute, traveling to Rome to offer alternative voices to the Vatican and Pope Francis on global warming. The skeptical delegation will hold counter events during Pope Francis’ climate summit on April 28 at the Vatican. (See: Pope Francis to Host Major Summit on Climate Change)

Morano will join skeptical scientists from NASA and elsewhere, to lay out a detailed case explaining why climate science does not justify the Vatican putting its faith in the work of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) or the UN climate agenda.

Skeptic Events In Rome – Morano & Heartland Institute – Who, Where & When:

Will also feature former NASA scientist Hal Doiron, Physicist Dr. Tom Sheahan, and Dr. Richard KeenChristopher Monckton, Cal Beisner and others.

Morano’s key points to Pope Francis and Vatican officials will be as follows: 

“The Pope’s claim that “It is man who has slapped nature in the face” needs to be weighed against the fact that fossil fuels have allowed mankind to stop nature from slapping man in the face. The more we develop with fossil fuels and increase our wealth and standard of living, the more we can inoculate ourselves from the ravages of nature.

Fossil fuel use is the moral choice to make. Sadly, the Pope is aligning himself with a UN agenda that will limit development for billions of the world’s desperately poor residents. (Der Spiegel: Pontifical Academy Of Sciences Pushing For Climate Treaty…Finds Fossil Fuels Akin To ‘Modern Slavery’ !)

If Pope Francis goes ahead with his climate encyclical and uses it to essentially lobby nations to commit to a development-limiting UN climate treaty, it will be unprecedented action and massively misguided. And to now have the Pope jump on that bandwagon would sow confusion among Catholics.

Instead of entering into an invalid Marriage with climate fear promoters —

Study: Global warming has slowed

Statistically, it’s pretty unlikely that an 11-year hiatus in warming, like the one we saw at the start of this century, would occur if the underlying human-caused warming was progressing at a rate as fast as the most severe IPCC projections,’ Brown said.

‘Hiatus periods of 11 years or longer are more likely to occur under a middle-of-the-road scenario.’

Under the IPCC’s middle-of-the-road scenario, there was a 70 per cent likelihood that at least one hiatus lasting 11 years or longer would occur between 1993 and 2050, Brown said.

‘That matches up well with what we’re seeing.’

There’s no guarantee, however, that this rate of warming will remain steady in coming years, Li stressed.

‘Our analysis clearly shows that we shouldn’t expect the observed rates of warming to be constant. They can and do change.’
