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.
