Io9 - Global Warming Skeptics Are Attacking The Pope For Being Green
Looks like no one who accepts the reality that we’re ruining the planet with carbon dioxide, and other greenhouse can avoid the wrath of the anti science climate change deniers. Even anti theists should defend the Pope in this instance. He’s doing the right thing, unless you don’t care about the future of the planet, or the future of humanity. George Dvorsky reports.
Earlier today, Pope Francis met with the UN Secretary-General to share his concerns about climate change — a meeting that did not go unnoticed by the Heartland Institute, a right-wing American organization known for its global warming skepticism.
Pope Francis met with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to discuss the upcoming Paris summit on climate change, a crucially important confab that some experts fear is the last good chance to forge a plan on carbon emissions and set limits to rising temperatures. The Pontifical Academy of Sciences also met with the UN Secretariat and some important NGOs to discuss climate change and other issues. During the meeting, the academy challenged politicians to end their “infatuation” with a mode of economic growth that’s destroying the planet.
