A REAL Churchman Addresses the Cult of Global Warming

The Pope is wading in.

Pope Benedict XVI has launched a surprise attack on climate change prophets of doom, warning them that any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not on dubious ideology.

The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.

The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement.

Dogma, indeed. It's a false religion...

The 80-year-old Pope said the world needed to care for the environment but not to the point where the welfare of animals and plants was given a greater priority than that of mankind..

We are responsible for "good stewardship," but as usual, common sense should prevail. He said as much:

7. The family needs a home, a fit environment in which to develop its proper relationships. For the human family, this home is the earth, the environment that God the Creator has given us to inhabit with creativity and responsibility. We need to care for the environment: it has been entrusted to men and women to be protected and cultivated with responsible freedom, with the good of all as a constant guiding criterion

I would just like to point out the coverage of this story in the US...

It's interesting that the main(shit)stream media in the US opted out of covering this story - I wonder why.

I am stunned as well. Finally something on which I am in agreement with Cardinal Ratzinger.
