Pp. Francis Goes Silly Jesuit

While the current Pope has written or spoken a number of things which are controversial--even borderline heretical--he also has a silly side.  And he proved it yesterday.

Pope Francis took a strong stand on anthropogenic climate change Monday, telling a gathering of diplomats in the Vatican that global warming is a result of human action.

We must not “downplay the importance of our own responsibility in interaction with nature,” Francis told the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See. “Climate changes, with the global rise in temperatures and their devastating effects, are also a consequence of human activity.”...

Not a 'global fall'--which was in progress until the 1970's or so?  Are the effects 'devastating'?  How do you know with Biblical certitude the post hoc/propter hoc assertion you just made?

Silly Jesuit.
