Seems the pope doesn’t realize that increased carbon dioxide is good for plants and other foodstuffs that come out of the ground (corn, wheat, etc.). If it all sounds familiar to the religion that has become global warming, that’s because it is. From UCA News:
Pope Francis on Tuesday warned “the powerful of the earth” they will answer to God if they fail to protect the environment to ensure the world can feed its population.
“The planet has enough food for all, but it seems that there is a lack of willingness to share it with everyone,” Francis said at a mass to mark the opening of the general assembly of the Catholic charitable organization Caritas.
“We must do what we can so that everyone has something to eat, but we must also remind the powerful of the earth that God will call them to judgment one day and there it will be revealed if they really tried to provide food for Him in every person and if they did what they could to preserve the environment so that it could produce this food.”
The striking comments from the Argentinian pontiff came ahead of the upcoming publication of a papal encyclical on the ethical aspects of environmental issues that is eagerly awaited by campaigners for action to address global warming.
