And the Pope is Green

Pope FrancisPope Francis will soon be releasing an encyclical on the environment and human ecology that will most likely contradict the principles and politics of most conservative Catholics, particularly in the United States. Is the global Left counting on Pope Francis to help them split the Catholic Church? The Catholic Church has been around for over two thousand years and has survived many different battles, including the yoke of communist regimes in Catholic countries like Poland.  Will it survive Pope Francis alignment with leftist movements?  Has the Left finally come out with a method that will destroy the power of the Church? I fear it will indeed cause great damage to an already weakened Church. The Left has been busy for years preparing for this moment.  Is it a coincidence we have a Marxist President in the USA and a leftist leaning Pope in Rome?  And let us not forget the unholy alliance of international communism with the jihadi Islamists! As a Catholic and Cuban immigrant, I have become suspicious of the tactics used by communists and those Catholics involved in “Social Justice.” Just when the “Global Warming” or “Climate Change” movement is beginning to lose credibility in our society, the “believers” find support from an unsuspected source:  The Catholic Church.  According to an article on the Daily Beast: “The encyclical isn’t even out yet and at least one climate-change-denying conservative group has claimed that the Pope has been misled and misinformed.”  What this writer calls “climate change-denying conservative group is The Heartland Institute.  This organization together with CFACT have for years provided the facts on the climate issue.  Thousands of scientists are on their side (see signatures on petition: http://www.petitionproject.org/signers_by_state_main.php).  The Vatican authorities did not allow this organization  representatives to participate.  Why not allow opposition to also be represented? Interviewed in this article was Dr. Christiana Peppard, a “specialist” in environmental ethics who teaches in the theology department at Fordham University.  Dr. Peppard declared that “viewed from the angle of consumptive impact, it would be super-developed countries like the U.S. that need to slow our reproductive rates in order to be proportionate consumers of the earth’s goods.”  I knew someone will point this out:  it is all about evil, selfish, capitalistic Americans! Will Pope Francis agree that Americans need to bring down our reproductive rates?  How will this be accomplished when Obama is encouraging ethnic groups who produce the most children to cross the border illegally and then be given amnesty, while also allowing mass immigration from Muslim countries—–well known for high birth rates. Finally, I get the picture.  The International Left with help from Islamists, big business, NGOs, religious organizations, and unscrupulous billionaires like George Soros have united under the guidance of the Alinsky rules to bring down the United States of America as a constitutional Republic and replace it with a totalitarian government that will redistribute our wealth to all parasitic governments in the world.  That is indeed the ultimate goal of the climate change hoax:  take over our wealth and destroy our middle class. Is this what an envoy of our Lord Jesus Christ would want? I cannot declare the reason for the Pope to join in this adventure against Americans but I know he has at times called the US out about our wealth and our capitalism without once mentioning our charity and compassion.  It is difficult to understand why a Pope, a man of God, would not even try to listen to those who oppose this issue, as if they didn’t count as human beings, many being Catholics.  Why is he “cherry picking” among millions—–did Jesus loved only the “poor”?  He seems driven by a zealous political/social crusade instead of by love of God. Does Pope Francis not understand what happens to the poorest people in the world when energy availability is curtailed?  The poor are the ones who benefit the most from fossil fuels produced cheaply instead of the wood burning methods that brings them respiratory diseases.  The only people who benefit by curtailing fossil fuels are the multibillionaires who have invested in “green technology” that is inefficient or who wish to monopolize energy sources, like Vladimir Putin. The same wealthy globalists that have exploited our economies have also taken advantage of the scientific ignorance of our populations.  When was Science changed to a democratic vote by the majority?  The science that currently is taught in schools comes from politicians and the media reliance on junk science, like Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth.  A large number of scientists have been skeptical about global warming for years, and with good reason.  CO2 levels on earth have in the past been four to eighteen times the current readings.  Global climate has warmed since the Little Ice Age (1400 to 1700 AD).  The first occurred between 1900 and 1945, and the second in 1975 until 1998, and then stopped and began falling again after reaching a high of 1.16ºF above the average global mean temperature. There hasn’t been any warming since then.  In addition, we must keep in mind that all the information from the IPCC reports (United Nations) comes from computer models.  The actual temperatures measured by both satellite data and independent balloon data show a near zero trend from 1979-1997. How is it moral to deny cheap energy for the poorest people on earth so that the elitists can enjoy nature at their pleasure?  How is it moral Christian teaching to place the earth above human beings?  Genesis  1:27-28: ——-  “God created man in his image, in the divine image he created him;  male and female he created them. God blessed them, saying:  Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.  Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the  birds on the air, and all the living things that move on earth.” Without cheap energy millions cannot provide food and clean water for their families.  Why should the poor in Africa have no right to the development that energy has brought to the West?  Reduction of carbon emissions would bring disaster to the poorest people on earth, the ones Christians are supposed to love.  A 50% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050 would only reduce global average temperature in 2100 by an inconsequential 0.07C. Even an elimination of all CO2 emissions by the United States would prevent only 0.17C of warming.”  (Climate Depot:  Does Caring for “the Least of These” Demand Fighting Global Warming?). I pray daily to St. John Paul II to save his Church from the errors and closed mind of Pope Francis.  Pope John Paul II was a major player in bringing down communist USSR.  He knew communism because he lived it.  Pray that St. John Paul guide his beloved Church into doing the will of God.
