CARDINAL PELL REJECTS GLOBAL WARMING
in an article at Spero News linked at NOR:
The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Sydney Australia wrote to his flock that “doomsayers” and “zealots” who worry about global warming have subjected their listeners to “a lot of nonsense about climate disasters”.
Noting that some opinion page editors and others have called for “Nuremberg-style trials for global warming sceptics, while a USA television correspondent compared sceptics to ‘holocaust deniers’”, Cadinal George Pell said “Christians don’t go against reason although we sometimes go beyond it in faith to embrace probabilities. What we were seeing from the doomsayers was an induced dose of mild hysteria, semi-religious if you like, but dangerously close to superstition.”
