Papal Encyclical on Global Warming

There’s going to be a papal encyclical on global warming:

Climate Depot’s Morano: ‘The Vatican is essentially going to confuse Catholics into thinking that their positions on man-made global warming fears are now an article of faith — are now part of Catholic doctrine…This is nothing short of an ‘Unholy Alliance’ between the Vatican and the man-made climate fear promoters.’

I welcome this development: it makes it crystal clear that global warming alarmism is a religious belief (if that wasn’t perfectly clear already).

Young Americans are now the most sceptical about it.

New Survey: Nearly Half Of Young Americans Are Climate Sceptics

The Younger They Are, The More Sceptical

More here on encyclicals.

I wonder if they’ll try and rope in a few ayatollahs as well?

They’re already looking for support from rappers.

    More like a Dictator/emperor told the Vatican if you want to stay being a church you will do as your told by the EU and the green facists or else. As we all know this POPE was hand picked by the EU masters. No pope retires they are their til death yet this one retires under suspicious health concerns………..BS

      An edict decree like that is about the same as Bloomberg buying a muslim fatawa against smoking………..for 380 grand. Bet that bought a lot of IEDs and AK47 and RPGs for ISIS

    Professor Woodcock told the Yorkshire Evening Post:.

    “The term ‘climate change’ is meaningless. The Earth’s climate has been changing since time immemorial, that is since the Earth was formed 1,000 million years ago. The theory of ‘man-made climate change’ is an unsubstantiated hypothesis [about] our climate [which says it] has been adversely affected by the burning of fossil fuels in the last 100 years, causing the average temperature on the earth’s surface to increase very slightly but with disastrous environmental consequences.

    “The theory is that the CO2 emitted by burning fossil fuel is the ‘greenhouse gas’ causes ‘global warming’ – in fact, water is a much more powerful greenhouse gas and there is 20 time more of it in our atmosphere (around one per cent of the atmosphere) whereas CO2 is only 0.04 per cent.

    “There is no reproducible scientific evidence CO2 has significantly increased in the last 100 years.”

    He also said:

    “Even the term ‘global warming’ does not mean anything unless you give it a time scale. The temperature of the earth has been going up and down for millions of years, if there are extremes, it’s nothing to do with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it’s not permanent and it’s not caused by us. Global warming is nonsense.”

    Professor Woodcock dismissed evidence for global warming, such as the floods that deluged large parts of Britain this winter, as “anecdotal” and therefore meaningless in science.

    “Events can happen with frequencies on all time scales in the physics of a chaotic system such as the weather. Any point on lowland can flood up to a certain level on all time scales from one month to millions of years and it’s completely unpredictable beyond around five days.”

    Also, the only reason we regularly hear that we have had the most extreme weather “since records began” is that records only began about 100 years ago.

    “The reason records seem to be being frequently broken is simply because we only started keeping them about 100 years ago. There will always be some record broken somewhere when we have another natural fluctuation in weather.

    “It’s absolutely stupid to blame floods on climate change, as I read the Prime Minister did recently. I don’t blame the politicians in this case, however, I blame his so-called scientific advisors.”

    When asked how can say this when most of the world’s scientists, political leaders and people in general are committed to the theory of global warming, Prof Woodcock answered bluntly:

    “This is not the way science works. If you tell me that you have a theory there is a teapot in orbit between the earth and the moon, it’s not up to me to prove it does not exist, it’s up to you to provide the reproducible scientific evidence for your theory.

    “Such evidence for the man-made climate change theory has not been forthcoming.”

    This lack of evidence has not stopped a whole green industry building up, however. At the behest of that industry, governments have been passing ever more regulations that make life more difficult and expensive.

    “…the damage to our economy the climate change lobby is now costing us is infinitely more destructive to the livelihoods of our grand-children. Indeed, we grand-parents are finding it increasingly expensive just to keep warm as a consequence of the idiotic decisions our politicians have taken in recent years about the green production of electricity.”

    Professor Woodcock is the latest scientist to come out against the theory of man-made global warming. James Lovelock, once described as a “green guru”, earlier this month said that climate scientists “just guess”, and that no one really knows what’s happening.

    Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, also said that she was “duped into supporting the IPCC” and added “If the IPCC is dogma, then count me in as a heretic

    Mervyn • a day ago

    The Roman Catholic Church represents the Catholic religion. Why is it dabbling in the politics of climate change? Why is the Pope allowing the Church to be poisoned by a United Nations agenda? I am a Catholic, but I have no respect for this Pope who has brought the Church into disrepute by lowering it to the the corrupt standard of the UN.

  4. Lepercolonist says:

    In elementary school the Catholic nuns taught me that eating meat on Friday or not attending Mass on Sunday will send me to hell for eternity. Unless I confessed my sins to the priest in the confessional. If you forget to tell the priest, you will rot in hell.

    Not believing in global warming as an article of faith will now cause more Catholics to overpopulate
    hell. They taught us that hell was HOT. I see their logic now.

      Shocking Declaration By Obama And World Leaders: Your Bank Account Isn’t Yours

      Get ready in the near future to pay the bank a fee, and the government a tax, just for the honor of having a high-risk bank account that pays you nothing.

      This article is sponsored by one of our valued partners, Swiss America.

      4.14.15 – Last November in Brisbane, Australia, President Obama agreed with G-20 global economic leaders that you no longer own your bank accounts. The United States now regards your bank account as an asset that, in effect, belongs to your bank and can be seized by the government to pay bank debts and obligations.

      As we document in Don’t Bank On It! The Unsafe World of 21st Century Banking, the bank we used to trust to safeguard our money has become one of the riskiest places to put it.

      A precedent was set for seizing bank accounts under the “bail in” doctrine in Cyprus, where people awoke one March 2013 morning to find their banks locked and ATM access to their accounts shut down. President Obama has embraced such bail ins.

      Now, we have a similar new legal precedent being set in Australia for taxing your bank accounts….for your protection, of course. America might quickly adopt this, too.

    Every payday on the 1st Im at the bank withdrawing ever bit of cash from the account………….every month like clock work. Stuff it in mason jars or the mattress………..the governments bankrupt when this is what they are doing. Its what Id say is a way they can stop everyone from making a run on the banks when the day comes everything collapses or they just steal all your money and close the bank themselves.

    Law | Smoking Ban To Be Overturned in Indiana

    It’s not often you seem a smoking law overturned, but it’s about to happen in Indiana and Cigar Lounges couldn’t be happier.

    As it stands now if you walk into a new cigar lounge it is illegal to smoke indoors even if the only product sold is tobacco. In order to light up you need to walk outside at least 8 feet from the door, and in winter that isn’t too accommodating.

    Thankfully, all that is about to change as a new bill has some language slipped into that clears the way for smokers to light up and rejoice. The new measure will do away with part of a statewide smoking ban imposed three years ago when it was made illegal to smoke inside public facilities, including tobacco shops. An exemption was in place for preexisting tobacco shops.

    The new measure has had some bipartisan support with endorsements from the current and past chairmen of the House Public Health Committee, Rep. Ed Clere, R-New Albany, and Rep. Charlie Brown, D-Gary.

    The legislation, if signed by Govenor Mike Pence, would be effective July 1.

    • harleyrider1978 says:

      Funny they aren’t even really saying what was overturned. You can smoke in a tobacco shop now regardless or what.

      Funny the supreme court ruled over the evansville ban that there could be no excemptions or the whole law was void.

      So does this now make the statelaw NULL ad VOID too…………

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4ZPAkNldnw Great part about the smoking ban in nigel farages speech which I didn’t expect (right at the end)

    • Frank Davis says:

      Well, re smoking he describes himself as a “sinner”.

      And he doesn’t address the “retrograde” charge levelled at him by the questioner.

      • Will says:

        The way it was dealt with wasn’t great I agree but I’d consider even a mention of overturning smoking legislation on the BBC good as I completely didn’t expect it to come up.

      • junican says:

        I think that we should look at Farage’s confession to being a sinner in the same way that I describe myself as a ‘disgusting, filthy, stinking smoker’. Did the audience laugh when the Zealot started on about smoking and the NHS or did my ears deceive me?

        • Marvin says:

          Interestingly the last question asked by the selected audience was about the smoking ban. You’ve got 10 seconds Nigel. Nice timing, she obviously got the word “wrap it up – wrap it up” from the producer and could therefore talk over him. And yes Junican the audience did laugh cynically when the “smoking related deaths” propoganda was mentioned.

    • jltrader says:

      I don’t find it that great. The fact that the moderator rushed to end the session was an annoying thing. But leaving that aside, Nigel went on a wrong path in my opinion. You can’t compare an established figure (the ~ £11B tobacco revenue) with some fairy dust estimate of ‘smoking-related deaths’ (~ £2B). And because you want to revert bad, undemocratic legislation doesn’t necessarily mean you’re retrograde. Again, giving example of a country (Germany) which hasn’t as of yet been swept over completely by antismoking hysteria isn’t the best strategy in my view. A better example would’ve been the repeal of Prohibition in the USA or more recently the fall of communism in Eastern Europe.

      • Ed says:

        Me neither, It sounded apologetic at best. Surely prohibition of any drug is a retrograde step? What is retrograde is adopting the Hitlerian anti-smoking propaganda of the 1930’s in an attempt to socially engineer the entire planet.
        We need a true paradigm shift: Smoking is good for you!

        Didn’t the Catholic church bring back indulgences recently too? lol

          osted on June 17, 2014 by Frank Davis

          A few days back, the prohibition of tobacco and alcohol in Iraq by Muslim extremists raised the question of whether Western antismoking organisations would support such measures.

          H/T Harley, it would seem that at least one Muslim group in Indonesia was getting funding from a Michael Bloomberg-owned organisation in 2010:

          An organization owned by the mayor of New York City has channeled over US$390,000 to Muhammadiyah as part of a global anti-tobacco campaign, but the country’s second largest Islamic organization denied the funding influenced its recent edict banning smoking.

          A. Fattah Wibisono, a deputy secretary at Muhammadiyah’s council tasked with issuing religious edicts, acknowledged that his organization was cooperating with the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, a philanthropic organization established in 2006 by Michael R. Bloomberg to fight tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries…

          The Bloomberg Initiative says on its website, http://www.tobaccocontrolgrants.org, its program with Muhammadiyah aims “to mobilize public support towards obtaining religious policy on tobacco control and to support FCTC [Framework Convention on Tobacco Control] accession”.

          Muhammadiyah issued an edict banning its followers from smoking on Wednesday, basing its argument on the Koran, which bans Muslims from taking their own lives. It also urged the government and the House of Representatives to ratify the FCTC.

          Muhammadiyah denied that it received funding to issue the edict. But it would seem that “obtaining religious policy” of this sort was precisely the aim of the Bloomberg Initiative, and it got exactly what it wanted.

          And this shows that antismoking organisations are now prepared to reach beyond governmental public health agencies and attempt to secure religious support in their war on tobacco and smokers.

          It has, in short, become a religious war on smoking.

          Of course, the war on smokers always was a fanatical religious war, masquerading as a public health campaign. Tobacco Control is a religious cult. So it’s really only revealing its true nature by acquiring Islamic allies.

          But it raises the question of whether the Bloomberg Initiative grant is just one of many such grants being made by Western antismoking organisations to other Muslim groups. After all, since Al Qaeda is strongly antismoking, it cannot be beyond the realms of possibility that Al Qaeda has itself been the recipient of similar funding. And since ISIL/ISIS in Iraq is an offshoot of Al Qaeda, they also may be receiving funding from Western antismoking organisations.

          And if Islamic groups are being funded, why not Christian and Buddhist and Hindu ones as well? Has the Bloomberg Initiative approached the Vatican with a view to having smoking added to the list of Seven Deadly Sins?

          And since this is now a religious war on tobacco, might we not begin to ask what the religious affiliations of the Tobacco Controllers might be? Perhaps we will find that many of them are converts to Islam, and maybe even members of Al Qaeda. Maybe someone should ask Deborah Arnott which chapel or mosque or coven she attends.

    Tobacco ban foe wins seat on Westminster Board of Health

    WESTMINSTER — In October, the possibility of a tobacco ban in town drew international interest, but an election, which may be the last act of that drama, could not even draw 10 percent of the town’s voters.

    An election between Board of Health Chairman Andrea L. Crete and tobacco ban opponent Michael G. Popik drew only 398 voters — 7 percent of the 5,182 registered to vote in town. Of those who cast ballots, about 90 percent voted for Mr. Popik.

    Mr. Popik defeated Ms. Crete 356-38, with one write-in and three blank ballots, in the annual town election Tuesday. The Board of Health contest was the only race on the ballot.

    “I’m honored, but humbled,” Mr. Popik said after learning of the result. “This is the beginning of a lot of work I have to do and I am fully prepared to do this. I really want to do a good job for the people of this town.”

    Mr. Popik said he decided in November to run for office. He said he is not a smoker and does not favor smoking but was incensed by how the possible tobacco ban was handled.

    “We have to respect people’s rights,” he said.

    Ms. Crete was chairman of the board when it proposed the regulations, which would have banned the sale of tobacco products in town. The board members said they wrote the regulations to help protect the health of Westminster residents, but the proposal caused a huge uproar.

    The proposed ban attracted international attention and culminated in a loud and contentious public hearing on Nov. 12. Opponents of the ban packed the Westminster Elementary School gym, but few got a chance to talk. The hearing was ended after 25 minutes because Board of Health members thought the crowd was getting out of control.

    Along with protests held by business owners and residents against the regulations, a recall effort was started to remove board members Edward Simoncini and Peter Munro. Ms. Crete was not eligible to be recalled because it was too close to when she would be up for re-election.

    A week after the public hearing, the Board of Health voted to end efforts to create the regulations. The vote was 2-1 with Ms. Crete the only one voting to continue review of the regulations. Later, opponents of the regulations announced they were ending the recall effort against Mr. Simoncini and Mr. Munro.

    The election was low-key with very few signs, all of which belonged to Mr. Popik. No supporters of the candidates were visible around town. Mr. Popik had 15 signs around town, including two in front of Vincent’s Country Store, which came to symbolize opposition to the proposed tobacco ban.

    Mr. Popik said he did what he could to encourage voting, but believes people may have forgotten about the issue over the past five months.

    Ms. Crete has been on the Board of Health since 2012. She was appointed to fill a vacant position and later elected to a two-year term, which expires this year.

    Mr. Popik is retired from HealthAlliance Leominster Hospital, where he served as head of the radiology department. This is his first time running for office in town
