Well, things seem to get more interesting between the Vatican and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The head of the Department, Gina McCarthy, met at the Vatican with officials today to discuss their agreement and concerns on combating ‘climate change.’
She made the following remarks:
I think the most important thing that we can do, working with the pope, is to try to remind ourselves that this is really about protecting natural resources that human beings rely on, and that those folks that are most vulnerable — that the church has always been focused on, those in poverty and low income — are the first that are going to be hit and impacted by a changing climate.
These comments are synonymous to Catholic leaders that have claimed climate change is a threat and hurting the poorest nations. But it is hard to take them seriously when the poorest nations are still suffering, even though billions and billions of dollars have already been spent to combat ‘climate change’ for years.
It is hard to not see this as another political tactic by the EPA, where they’re just trying to get a boost in popularity from the Pope. This meeting also comes several months before Pope Francis plans to release an encyclical on climate change this summer, then coming to the United States for his September visit.
Although McCarthy says it is not ‘my place’ to dictate what Pope Francis would say in his encyclical, keep in mind this is the same EPA that is waging a war on coal and sends a swat team to raid an Alaska mine.
There are two sides to every story. Unfortunately, Pope Francis and the Vatican only hears McCarthy’s point of view, who heads a bureaucracy filled with waste and corruption, as is many other bureaucracies in our government. He hasn’t had the chance to hear the other side of the argument. Nobody told him about the 97% scientific ‘consensus’ on man-made climate change being debunked. Nobody told him that the EPA and radical environmentalists are destroying jobs in coal and energy. Nobody told him that free markets and individuals can deal with the environment and almost every other issue way better than the federal government. I could go on but the point is that these Catholic leaders think the EPA is doing good works, but they don’t realize it has done much more harm than good.
