Climate Skeptics’s Issue Catholic Climate Declaration – ‘There is no earthly force capable of stopping climate change’

The Declaration

The Magisterium of the Catholic Church makes no mention of earth’s optimal climate, or the best rate of change of the climate, nor should it. Neither optimum is known to anybody.

The earth’s climate has always changed, is changing now, and will never cease changing. The extent to which man is responsible for climate change is not known, only surmised. There is no earthly force capable of stopping climate change.

Extreme caution, even skepticism, is warranted in any statement about the climate given the decades of failed and overreaching forecasts and hyperbole from official and interested sources. Beyond individual prudent stewardship, no Catholic is obliged to support any environmental measure.

The salvation of souls is of more pressing concern than the air temperature. Pray to God and pray for your neighbor, not to the planet.
