  • Naomi Klimate would have greater success in her role as savior of the climate if she didn’t identify herself as an anti-capitalist, secular, Jewish, feminist. To be successful she will need to unite, not divide humanity. http://thelastwhy.ca/poems/2008/9/11/green-shift.html

    Indeed, at some point the Vatican will be attacking the Democrat party, and its Leftist wing, for their radical positions leading to moral corruption on the planet. I hope Naomi will be there in support at that point too.

    The press often times lied to create the theme of GOP opposition from mostly wackos to the encyclical. Jeb Bush is the “Big Money” candidate and will win the primaries: “Jeb Bush backed away Wednesday from criticizing Pope Francis on climate change, but he did offer a stronger assertion than many of his Republican presidential rivals that global warming is a threat and that the federal government should address it. “I’m a Catholic and try to follow the teachings of the Church,’’ Bush said Jeb Bush backed away Wednesday from criticizing Pope Francis on climate change, but he did offer a stronger assertion than many of his Republican presidential rivals that global warming is a threat and that the federal government should address it.” ’’http://www.cruxnow.com/life/2015/06/17/jeb-bush-avoids-criticizing-pope-while-acknowledging-threat-of-global-warming/
    Like every other woman who winds up in some Vatican organization, Ms. Klein is a token. The Vatican is through-and-through…

    The Pope and advisors are misled of the ‘science’ behind ‘climate change’.
    Many U.N. studies used to conclude that the science is ‘settled’, have been proven to contain data which was: 1) deleted, 2) exaggerated, 3) fabricated. – to promote the political agenda of ‘man-made global warming’. By achieving that end, the UN can confiscate huge amounts of $$$ from member nations – in the name of ‘SAVING THE PLANET’. The so-called ‘leaders’ of the UN are MORE greedy than the capitalists on the planet.
    If Obama were serious about this, he would stop vilifying America – which already has many EPA policies in place, and would chastise China and Russia – which produce DOZENS OF X the pollution of the U.S.
    Many scientific facts are deliberately being ignored:
    NASA reports show ice caps growing, temperatures same for 30yrs,
    A single MAJOR volcanic eruption belches more hot-house gases than ALL the autos in history.
    The VAST majority of CO2 is from micro-organisms dying in…

    . . . . Dying in the oceans.
    The earth has gone thru dozens of cycles of global warming and cooling – BEFORE mankind existed.
    During some of these previous cycles – the ice caps and glaciers had receded FAR MORE than their present levels.
    Many people are not aware that a petition stating that their is little evidence of MAN MADE climate change, has been signed by OVER 30,000 SCIENTISTS, OVER 9,000 of whom are PHD’s. Many have their degrees in Earth sciences, climatology, meteorology.
    Follow the $$$.
    The science is FAR from being ‘SETTLED’.
    A study from East Anglia University, was the CORNERSTONE of the U.N. claim that the final evidence was in, global warming was real, it was man made, and it was time to end the debate and act. Only one problem – that study was also proven to have been manipulated by its authors, to contain ignored, exaggerated, or completely fictitious data.
    If you want a scientific government grant-$$ in America – you better produce the results the…

    . . .results the politicians are looking for – so they can advance their agenda.
    In the end, the greedy politicians and U.N. ‘leaders’ literally get BILLIONS of $$$$ – much of which will line their own pockets and the pockets of their friends.
    ‘MAN MADE GLOBAL WARMING’, I believe, has become one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated on humanity, and sadly enough, many scientists, I fear, have sacrificed their noble and objective search for truth, in favor of a guaranteed place in the scientific community along with a secure financial future, all provided by the ‘controllers of the purse’ (the corrupt politicians).
    I can see it now, POLITICAL OPERATIVE: “Jay, remember, if your research shows WHAT I THINK IT WILL, I am pretty sure we can arrange for an extension on that grant of yours, and not just a continuation, but a substantial increase, at that. Of course, if we don’t feel your conclusions are THE QUALITY OF SCIENCE we are looking for (hint, hint – the results we want…
