U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (lol) John Kerry has congratulated fellow globalist Pope Francis for a new letter published Wednesday on the “climate crisis” in which the Pope calls out the United States for its high per capita carbon emissions.
On Thursday, Kerry applauded the pope’s “powerful words” in “Laudato Deum” (Praise God), adding on social media, “His Holiness should be heard by all when he writes we can only solve this crisis if we can ‘count on the commitment of all.’”
The pope’s letter slammed skeptics of climate alarmism and singled out the United States for its contribution to the alleged crisis.
“Despite all attempts to deny, conceal, gloss over or relativize the issue, the signs of climate change are here and increasingly evident,” the pope declared. “No one can ignore the fact that in recent years we have witnessed extreme weather phenomena, frequent periods of unusual heat, drought and other cries of protest on the part of the earth that are only a few palpable expressions of a silent disease that affects everyone.
“If we consider that emissions per individual in the United States are about two times greater than those of individuals living in China, and about seven times greater than the average of the poorest countries, we can state that a broad change in the irresponsible lifestyle connected with the Western model would have a significant long-term impact,” he stated.
The Pillar Catholic, an online Catholic news outlet, pointed out that “U.S. per capita emissions are less than 1.5 times that of China,” adding that China’s per capita emissions levels “are significantly higher than the global average.”
The pope also failed to mention that in aggregate, China’s emissions are more than double those of the United States, and America’s air is among the cleanest of any nation, while China’s air quality is among the poorest.
But don’t let the facts get in the way of your anti-Americanism.
