“It seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem that can no longer be left to a future generation,” Francis told those gathered at the White House. “When it comes to the care of our common home, we are living at a critical moment in history.”
Francis echoed the themes of “sustainable development” and “human ecology” that he wrote in his encyclical on global warming earlier this year. His letter, called Laudato Si, earned him praise from environmentalists, but met with critical conservatives who saw it as an attack on capitalism and industrialization.
Watch: Morano ‘talks’ to (Cardboard) Pope on TV: ‘We are asking you to reconsider. Please don’t confuse Catholics…you have been horribly misled by extreme UN advisors’
Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation – NRK TV – Broadcast September 20, 2015
Featured Climate Depot Publisher Marc Morano:
Morano: “When you have a Pope coming out and saying ‘we must ask God for a successful outcome to a UN treaty – that’s very confusing.”
Morano: “Skeptical Catholics of global warming are now going to have to scratch their heads and say ‘Am I now in a league with people who support abortion or support birth control or gay marriage in terms of church teachings are they all equal? And they are not of course, but the media is portraying it as though they are and many Catholics believe that if you are skeptical of global warming you are not a good Catholic.”
“Carbon based energy – fossil fuels – have been one of the greatest liberators of mankind in the history of our planet. And I think the Pope needs to recognize that. He needs to tip his hat – so to speak – to fossil fueled capitalism and he needs to realize the benefits.”
Morano on TV: ‘The Pope should tip his hat to the oil and coal-based energy that has liberated humanity’ – Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation features Morano (Via Google Translate): ‘The Pope should tip his hat to the oil and coal-based energy that has liberated humanity, believes Marc Morano. He was one of a group of Catholic climate skeptics who traveled to Rome in April to get the Pope’s ear that he is wrong in climate policy. He runs the website Climate Depot, and attempts to influence US legislators and Catholics in climate policy.’
Morano believes that the Pope’s real motive with climate policy is the redistribution of wealth. His position has already been damaged by the fact that he acts as political, says Morano and shows that there are fewer and fewer American Catholics who say they have a favorable impression of him. “It’s confusing when many believers think that they are good Catholics, if they are skeptical about global warming,” Morano explained.
