Pope blasts climate change doubters & calls on world leaders to take action in wake of hurricane Irma

Pope Francis has sharply criticised climate change doubters, saying history will judge those who failed to take action.

Francis was asked about climate change and the spate of hurricanes, including Irma, have pummelled the US, Mexico and the Caribbean recent days.

He called on world leaders to take the necessary decisions to curb heat-trapping emissions blamed for the warming of the Earth.

He’s a weather expert too?

    “…history will judge …” He’s lost interest in the judgement of God.

    Popebama.

    One of the most fraudulent man made figures in Christendom and people keep buying into this supposed authority.

    Let it die.

  • Tooth&Claw

    God is the master of our world, and is bigger than our planet’s climate, perhaps this is exactly what is supposed to be. Does the pope propose he knows the mind of God?

    • I’m not sure he believes in God.

      • Tooth&Claw

        And there you go, just another manipulative liar.

    What has the popester done to reduce carbon emissions from the Vatican state? Inquiring minds want to know.

  • WalterBannon

    this satanic cultural Marxist pope is not a christian

  • irishrus

    He must be listening to the bullshit Catholic schools are pushing on Catholic children … do your job… not what populism wants to hear

    How far do you have to deviate from Climate Change orthodoxy to be a “denier?” What if you think the planet is warming, and CO2 emissions contribute to the effect, but you think the impact is overstated, and there is nothing we can do to stop it?

      The “climate change” malarkey is all about a) further demonizing market capitalist economies, which leads to b) wealth redistribution from nations with market economies (the US is and always was in the cross hairs), and even more importantly, c) an end to US global hegemony.

      That’s it in a nutshell. And marxists like Bergoglio are on board with every bit of it, lock stock and barrel.

      So if any part of your position gets in the way of a, b, or c, then you’ll become a “denier” or any other smear they can concoct to try to silence you or marginalize your position.

      There’s no such thing as a minor heresy

        I will do my penance:

        Hail Al Gore, full of himself…

    We’ve had bad popes before so that’s nothing new in the history of the Church but they were all at lest minimally Catholic. Jorge is a garden variety third world marxist. Dime a dozen south of the border. The man can’t go five minutes without insulting faithful Catholics and spouting off about things he doesn’t know anything about, like global climate, in order to advance his very worldly, very leftist agenda.

      Pope Alexander VI, trigger of the Reformation and responsible for the shattering of Western Christendom, has competition for the title of worst pope ever in Frances and his Amoris Laetitia.

  • SMC_BC

    If he’s got enough time to give his opinion on everything and anything he’s got enough time to answer the dubias. Get to work Holy Father the Magisterium is about to get close up and personal, can’t you feel it breathing down the back of your neck?

    There’s a very large rock in the middle of Pacific Spirit Park here in Vancouver. It was dropped there by a receding ice sheet thousands of years ago. Ice sheets have been receding for a very long time. This man needs to go away and take hillary and hussein with him.

    “. . . saying history will judge those who failed to take action.”

    Not as harshly as history will judge you, you marxist hypocrite.

  • P_F

    You mean prior to al-gore’s ‘convenient lie’ there never were any hurricanes, floods, sand storms, snow storms or droughts??
    idiot commie traitor pope.

  • Alain

    If Vatican II did not empty the pews enough, this guy will succeed bit time.

  • A Hamilton Guy

    If he`s talking Church Doctrine, I`ll listen. On climate change; He can shut the hell up. As a Mick I will make my own decisions. The Planet has warmed before, and cooled before. And we weren`t around.

  • Dave

    God must really hate catholics, or is really testing them by allowing this mental midget of a pope keep poping.
