The Pope plans to addressed a joint session of Congress today and urge more action against climate change. Is this topic a good choice for a religious leader of his stature to be speaking to Congress about.

Actually it was the Republicans that asked him to speak and Obama was pissed as hell.

No argument there, Linnster. Ha!

I think it's nice, since so many people seem to be in denial about it. Maybe by him speaking there some people will think "Well shit, we should do something about this."

I don't know anything about other Popes, but to me he seems more for the people than religion.

@ItsATrap I think it's nice, since so many people seem to be in denial about it. Maybe by him speaking there some people will...

What you and the Pope apparently don't realize is that whether climate change is real or not - there's not a damned thing we can do about it.

Agreed - to a point. Climate change and pollution are different animals. I'm all for being a good steward for Earth. We recycle, have low emission cars, and I'm the King of Compost! (My gardens love it!)

Ecologist Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace agrees that that climate change fears are a hoax.

You bet! It's not conclusive - but very persuading. The other persuasion for me anyway is that both Obama and the UN are pushing for the carbon tax thing to 'benefit climate change'. And I ask myself, 'When's the last time Obama or the UN have been honest with me?'

I know, right?

Well, it is supposedly a secular body, so anything purely religious would be inappropriate. Our foreign policy would have been my first choice, but that's just me.

Hopefully he doesn't tell them to start building an ark. Image in content

The Pope is a religious leader. He has no standing what so ever regarding climate change. He makes himself look petty and foolish discussing the topic in public like that.
