Monckton and Heartland in Rome with message of hope for Pope Francis:
There is no crisis!
The popular, avuncular Pope Francis. Realistic climate information is almost guaranteed to challenge his open-mindedness. Let us pray he mans up to meet it. Click to enlarge.
The usual dope on climate change is soaked in exaggeration, obfuscation, scare-mongering, twisted statistics and fact-free insinuation, rather than frank, open-hearted science. To counteract this, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences of the Roman Catholic Church is holding a global warming workshop at the Vatican on Tuesday.
In some quarters there is little optimism that the workshop will see through the widespread deceptions in modern climate science, so the Heartland Institute has gone along to assist. It has articles and links on global warming and the workshop so you, too, can tell Pope Francis: Global warming is not a crisis!
Christopher Monckton is reported in the NCR giving His Holiness blunt advice:
“You demean the office that you hold and you demean the church whom it is your sworn duty to protect and defend and advance.”
“You will be kicking the poor in the teeth. Stand back and listen to both sides. And do not take sides in politics.”
The Cornwall Alliance has published an open letter to Pope Francis urging him to “carefully consider the scientific evidence regarding the real, not merely the theoretical, effects of human action on global climate.” As we know, the only indication of dangerous warming arises from untested theories that feedbacks will increase global warming but no such observations have yet been made. The Alliance is measured in its advice to His Holiness, but there’s no mistaking its meaning:
As world leaders contemplate a climate agreement, many look to you for guidance.
There has been a growing divergence between real-world temperature observations and model simulations. On average, models simulate more than twice the observed warming.
For now, wind and solar energy cannot effectively replace fossil fuel and nuclear energy.
