In a new teaching letter published Wednesday titled “Laudate Deum (Praise God),” socialist Pope Francis insists that the world “is collapsing and may be nearing the breaking point” due to Americans’ contribution to the purported climate crisis.
“Despite all attempts to deny, conceal, gloss over or relativize the issue, the signs of climate change are here and increasingly evident,” he wrote. “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.”
Despite the fact that the United States is one of the countries with the cleanest air in the world, the pope singled out America as specially to blame. “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 concluded, “For there to be solid and lasting advances, I would insist that, preference should be given to multilateral agreements between States.” he writes.
In fact, 1600 prominent scientists, including two Nobel Prize winners, stated in their “World Climate Declaration” that climate models have proven inadequate for predicting global warming, that carbon dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant, and that climate change has not increased natural disasters.
“The geological archive reveals that Earth’s climate has varied as long as the planet has existed, with natural cold and warm phases,” the Declaration notes. “The Little Ice Age ended as recently as 1850. Therefore, it is no surprise that we now are experiencing a period of warming.”
“There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent,” the document declares. “There is no climate emergency,” it concludes. “Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm.”
