Participants in the Vatican synod on the Amazon region proposed adding “sins against the environment” to lists of traditionally recognized sins in their second day of discussions and deliberations.Synod fathers called for an “ecological conversion” that would allow people to see “the gravity of sins against the environment as sins against God, against our neighbour, and against future generations,” Vatican News reported Wednesday.“This would imply a need to produce and spread more widely a theological literature that would include ‘ecological sins’ alongside traditional sins,” the report stated.
New Yorker Mag. goes climate bonkers: "Every day, instead of thinking about breakfast, Americans have to think about death."
"Overwhelming numbers of human beings, including millions of government-hating Americans, need to accept high taxes and severe curtailment of their familiar life styles without revolting. They must accept the reality of climate change and have faith in the extreme measures taken to combat it. They can’t dismiss news they dislike as fake...They have to be permanently terrified by hotter summers and more frequent natural disasters, rather than just getting used to them."
"Call me a pessimist or call me a humanist, but I don’t see human nature fundamentally changing anytime soon."
Climate Depot Response: "Fantastic! If there is no hope, then there is no need for Americans to allow government to centrally plan our lives and impose the Green New Deal, the UN Paris pact, banning meat, regulating the SUV out of existence, turning to socialism to 'save us.' Luckily, the UN’s Paris climate agreement, EPA regulations and the GND can’t control the climate or even influence it in any way -- even if we actually faced a climate catastrophe (which we don't). University of Pennsylvania Geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack, a skeptical scientist, told Climate Depot: 'None of the strategies that have been offered by the U.S. government or by the EPA or by anybody else has the remotest chance of altering climate, if in fact climate is controlled by carbon dioxide.'
All Americans should rejoice that the climate fear activists are finally admitting its time to give up! The New Yorker thinks we should be 'thinking about death' instead of breakfast when we wake up. Now that we know its futile to control the climate, we can go back to just thinking about breakfast when we wake up. Another pancake please."
Pope Francis: “We have caused a climate emergency that gravely threatens nature and life itself, including our own."
“Now is the time to abandon our dependence on fossil fuels and move, quickly and decisively, towards forms of clean energy and a sustainable and circular economy,” he said.
Calling the U.N. summit “of particular importance,” he added: “There, governments will have the responsibility of showing the political will to take drastic measures to achieve as quickly as possible zero net greenhouse gas emissions and to limit the average increase in global temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius with respect to pre-industrial levels, in accordance with the Paris Agreement goals.”
