Peter Foster: Vatican becomes an arm of godless United Nations with climate statement
... Pope Francis’s encyclical on climate change ... is due to land in September to rally climate True Believers ahead of the U.N.’s giant policy shindig in Paris.A message for Pope Francis: Energy restrictions based on climate fears threaten the poor by Paul Driessen.
... This week’s statement, from the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PAS/PASS) ... confirms that Vatican not merely has slim or no grasp of economics or history, but is on its knees before tried-and-failed collectivist policies, and committed to a crusade against rich nations.
... The pope, who is an economic ignoramus, has allied himself with forces that would perpetuate poverty, not relieve it.
... Denying humanity the use of still bountiful hydrocarbon energy is thus not simply wrong. It is immoral – and lethal. This is the real reason that climate change is a critical moral issue. No one has a right to tell the world’s poor they cannot use fossil fuels to improve their lives, or to tell others they must reduce their living standards, based on speculation and unfounded fears about a man-made climate crisis.
