    Cardinal condemns skepticism

    ...over climate crisis.


    "“For this dialogue to be authentic, all voices should be heard,” he declared, adding that “we need a conversation that includes all stakeholders.”Despite his call for open dialogue, however, the cardinal went on to assert that there is one exception to this rule, namely, those who question the climate crisis.The ecological crisis “has arrived and is happening now,” he stated. “The time is over for speculation, for skepticism and denial, for irresponsible populism.”

    I can understand a church, any church, condemning skepticism. And speculation and denial.


    What if skepticism caught on?

    I suppose you could say the religion industry is a secular industry and the devout are their sales force. It isn't Catholics who come knocking on my door.


    Care to discuss how religions view skepticism?

    And a skeptic might say that religion is a hoax and church leaders are clearly getting rich on the suckers. Deadlines for disaster in the climate hysteria come and go but that doesn't deter the hysterics. The End of Times comes and goes but that doesn't deter the religious.

    How many times has the end come and gone for the Seventh-Day Adventists?

    I am a Floridian. I believe climate change as preached by the Marxist left is a hoax. There have been hurricanes in Florida since the beginning of hurricanes. There are now fewer of them than in the past. What has changed is not "climate" but the targets in the path of the hurricane so the damage is now greater. In the 1800's if a huge storm hit Ft Myers no one gave it much thought because the population was almost non existent. Today there are 3 quarters of a million people in Ft Myers, Cape Coral and Sanibel Island. Anyone who can't understand the concept of population density leading to increased storm damage is an idiot of the first order
