The Pope’s Got My Back

Theological Thursday (kinda)

Oh yeah! According to a british news agency, pope Benedict is poised to publically take a stance on the global warming hype seemingly identical to my own.

Aside from droppin’ da Catholic bomb, and being a renowned academic, B-16 is a man endowed with an appropriate scientific schooling in skepticism. To quote the article:

“The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.”


Australia’s Cardinal George Pell also weighed in on the issue, when he noted in October, “the atmospheric temperature of Mars had risen by 0.5 degrees celsius,” and that “The industrial-military complex up on Mars can’t be blamed for that.”

Glenn Beck has a solution for the scourge posed by the sun’s (solar) system wide rampage–NUKE THE SUN!


I believe some level of global warming is taking place, and caring for the environment and developing cleaner, more efficient technologies is good. But the science convinces me man has a minuscule effect on current climate changes. See these boards for my reasoning and scientific evidence, and this post on Eco-Tech for responsible ways we can use technology to protect the environment.

    Does this mean you won’t be inviting Al Gore to your christmas party this year? Careful, his son might bring some fresh chronic.

    Actually, Gore is welcome. As a one-man “assault on reason”, he might make things more interesting.

    The chronic’s not as welcome.
