Washington Post: ‘How Climate-change doubters lost a papal fight’ –
A French doubter who authored a book arguing that solar activity — not greenhouse gases — was driving global warming, Philippe de Larminat sought a spot at a climate summit in April sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Nobel laureates would be there…After securing a high-level meeting at the Vatican, he was told that, space permitting, he could join. He bought a flight ticket from Paris to Rome. But five days before the April 28 summit, de Larminat said, he received an e-mail saying there was no space left. It came after other scientists — as well as the powerful Vatican bureaucrat in charge of the academy itself — insisted he had no business being there. “They did not want to hear an off note,” de Larminat said.
For advice, he turned to a number of scientific advisers who supported the consensus that human activity was warming the earth. They included Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany. A professed atheist, Schellnhuber nevertheless saw a chance for a massive coup in the climate debate if a sitting pope issued an ode to Earth and the ills of carbon emissions. But not everyone, he said, seemed to want the encyclical to take sides. He said he was stunned to hear that de Larminat, the French doubter, almost made it to the key Vatican climate summit in April.
De Larminat, in March, had had a cordial meeting with Cardinal Peter Turkson, a senior member of the clergy and a key supporter of the pope’s encyclical. In it, both men said, Turkson promised to try to secure a space for the Frenchmen at the April summit.
However, Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences – a body of luminaries, religious and not, dating back decades but with roots in the 17th Century – effectively vetoed de Larminat’s presence.
Some prominent conservatives — particularly economic and environmental ones — were consulted by the Vatican during the process, but “many were sort of shocked that none of their contributions made it in there,” Raymond Arroyo, news director at the Catholic mega-channel EWTN, said Friday.

Who’s that one-world climate guru Schellnhuber who helped present the pope’s encyclical at the Vatican? – ‘Although these comments have been widely misinterpreted to indicate that he believes the current capacity of the Earth is one billion people, in context he is referring to the capacity should the temperature rise five degrees Celsius.’
Pope turns lobbyist?! Urges prayers for passage of UN climate treaty! Tells faithful ‘to ask God for a positive outcome’ for Paris UN agreement
Of course the Vatican, oops, I meant Al Gore and his people who are running this Vatican have to shut up and eliminate their opponents. How do you think they can advance their LIE?
Don’t think that guys like Jeffery Sachs know anything about trying to introduce RC teachings into U.S politics.
Or are they just trying to cause problems?
I figured it wouldn’t be long before this would turn around and bite the Pope.
Hiring a nutbar like Schellnhuber was his first mistake. (I’d be interested to know how much Schellnhuber earns for his advice)
Attempting to frame climate alarmism as a moral question was his second.
Climate alarmism is just politics, he knows nothing about politics.
The Pope should clearly stick to his knitting.

Look to the money flow. Just like politicians can be bought, I’ve no doubt a Pope can be (just like many Popes throughout history). Some of his predecessors even sold absolution and other papal “gifts” for personal and Church enrichment. You’d have to be naive in the extreme to believe that really ever stopped.
Perhaps de Larminat doesn’t have the financial backing that guys like Sachs have?
I looked at the draft which said [email protected]
You’re an idiot.

Solar activity — not greenhouse gases — is driving earth’s climate. Philippe de Larminat is a realist.
Pity the Vatican would not listen to him. The Church got it wrong centuries ago with the sun/earth/Galileo saga. The Church has got it wrong again, today, with the sun/climate change saga.

Galileo must be smiling right now because the nuttiness and corruption is still present in the Church.
Well, then he would not like being called out for the hypocrite speaking on Climate when he has his own environmental issues at home!
