The Theology of Climate Change
Pope Francis is weighing in on Climate Change with a 192 page screed deploring world leaders for their lack of action on the issue.
I have said for a long time Climate Change is more about theology than actual scientific consensus. It seems that millions of people are willing to take the dire predictions of doom and gloom on faith.
Now the Pope is weighing in and will later this week delivers his nearly 200 page tome on the subject.
Strange because today The Daily Caller published an article showing that Global Warming is stalled. The scientists arrived at this conclusion using the most advanced equipment available.
The article read in part:
Data from America’s most advanced climate monitoring system shows the U.S. has undergone a cooling trend over the last decade, despite recent claims by government scientists that warming has accelerated worldwide during that time.
The U.S. Climate Reference Network was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide “high-quality” climate data. The network consists of 114 stations across the U.S. in areas NOAA expects no development for the next 50 to 100 years.
The climate stations use three independent measurements of temperature and precipitation to provide “continuity of record and maintenance of well-calibrated and highly accurate observations,” NOAA states on its website. “The stations are placed in pristine environments expected to be free of development for many decades.” In essence, NOAA chose locations so they don’t need to be adjusted for “biases” in the temperature record.
Can I get an amen and don’t forget we could use a contribution in the collection plate.
