Hurricanes Divine Judgment on President Trump’s Disbelief in Global Warming?

 Comment:

There’s certainly a school of  belief that God does sometimes express his wrath through natural disasters, and there are biblical verses to quote: “The LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.”  (Isaiah 29:6)

But as a punishment for not believing a scientific theory? C’mon! 

As we reflect on the significance – if any – of these terrible hurricanes, let us remember two things; firstly, of course, to pray for the poor people suffering, at this time, and secondly, one thing that has not made (and is unlikely to make) the anti-Trump broadcasting news here in the UK  – that President Trump donated one million dollars of his personal money to the people of Texas and Louisiana.  

Over to you – are these hurricanes a punishment for not “believing in” global warming?  

Trump’s Dumping Green Religion is a “Slap in the Face” For Francis – Vatican

VATICAN CITY (RNS) One of the pope’s closest allies says it would be a “slap in the face” for Francis if President Trump pulls the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord so soon after the two leaders met at the Vatican.

“If Donald Trump really decides to pull the U.S. out of the Paris accord it will be a disaster for everyone,” Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, who heads the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences, told the Italian daily La Repubblica.

At their historic meeting last week, the pope gave Trump a copy of three documents, including his 2015 encyclical, “Laudato Si’,” which warns of the grave consequences caused by climate change and highlights how it’s aggravated by human activity. The president responded by promising, “I will read them.”  Click here to read more

Well?  Did Donald Trump “slap Pope Francis in the face” by pulling out of the Paris Accord?

Climate Change: Pope Francis Says World Headed For ‘Suicide’

PopeFrancisMikeJournalists Pope Francis talks to journalists during a press conference  he held aboard the flight  on the way back to Italy,
Monday, Nov. 30, 2015.

Its “now or never,” the Pontiff says

Pope Francis said the United Nations’ conference on climate change that began in Paris on Monday may be one of the last opportunities for countries to take steps toward avoiding an environmental catastrophe.

“I am not sure, but I can say to you ‘now or never’,” he said when asked if he thought the Paris summit would be a turning point aboard the papal plane on Monday, Reuters reports. “Every year the problems are getting worse. We are at the limits. If I may use a strong word I would say that we are at the limits of suicide.”

Pope Francis, who pushed for Catholics to pay attention to climate change last year, pointed to rising sea levels and Greenland’s melting glaciers as evidence of a need for nations to act during a conference with reporters on a flight back to Rome after his six-day visit to Africa.

“I am sure that the (Paris delegates) have goodwill to do something. I hope it turns out this way and I am praying that it will,” Francis said.

Can you believe this? The world is in turmoil, killings, terrorism, bombings, Christians wiped out in the Middle East; the Church is in turmoil, with apostasy widespread, and the Pope is worried about the weather?  Share your thoughts – mine are unprintable.

Pope Calls For Action To “Save The Planet”; Silent On Saving The Faith

PopeFrancisClimateChangeIn what I believe was probably a very rare exercise in sarcasm, blogger, Athanasius, emailed me the other day to say that he was greatly looking forward to the new encyclical, adding “Ireland has just officially apostatised from the Faith and the Pope’s  writing about the environment.  Things are truly bad!”

Quite.  The Church is falling apart before our very eyes, with apostasy writ large just about everywhere, and Pope Francis – instead of concerning himself with the question of how to end the diabolically-inspired crisis within the Church, which has resulted in worldwide apostasy – is worrying himself to death about how to improve the weather. Crackers

When can we expect an encyclical condemning the errors of our times  and exhorting obedience to the moral law, as revealed by God and entrusted to His Church to preach and promote?  When?

Well, the Pope has laid his cards on the table. He’s a “believer”.  Where does that leave Catholics like myself, who do NOT believe that the weather is caused or changed by human beings…  People like me who remember Our Lord’s exhortation not to worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself?  And where does it leave the papolatrists among us, who think the Pope’s every word is infallible? Could it be that the Holy Spirit is telling us that we ought to believe in man-made climate change? 

Tell us if the new encyclical has evangelised YOU into believing the doctrine of “man-made climate change” or, if –  like me – you agree with those commentators who suggest that the Pope should “leave science to the scientists” and further, that he should get down to ending the crisis in the Church, speaking out against the widespread loss of divine and Catholic Faith around us, apologise for his dereliction of duty in saying “who am I to judge?” (grave sin)  and admit that the Church has gone off the rails in the past 50 years thanks to that Council.  After all, he has to start somewhere if he wants to “save the Faith”.  And he must want to “save the Faith”… surely? 

Vatican: Climate Change Is Man-Made (Ed: say that with a straight face…)

Cardinal Parolin“We all bear responsibility to protect and value creation for the good of future generations.”

The Vatican’s Secretary of State told the UN Climate Summit this week that climate change is man-made and man’s responsibility.

In his address on Tuesday, Cardinal Pietro Parolin said the international community has a moral responsibility to address climate change.

Referring to Pope Francis and Pope Benedict, Cardinal Parolin said, “the Holy See has often stressed that there is a moral imperative to act, for we all bear the responsibility to protect and to value creation for the good of this and future generations.”

“The scientific consensus is rather consistent and it is that, since the second half of the last century, warming of the climate system is unequivocal,” he stated.

“It is a very serious problem which, as I said, has grave consequences for the most vulnerable sectors of society and, clearly, for future generations,” the Vatican’s second in command warned.

“Numerous scientific studies, moreover, have emphasised that human inaction in the face of such a problem carries great risks and socioeconomic costs,” the Cardinal observed.

“This is due to the fact that its principal cause seems to be the increase of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere due to human activity.”

“Faced with these risks and costs, prudence must prevail, which requires thoughtful deliberations based on an accurate analysis of the impact our actions will have on the future.”

He said one of the principle elements to have emerged from the more than thirty years of study on the phenomenon of global warming is the increasing awareness that the entire international community is part of one interdependent human family.

“The decisions and behaviours of one of the members of this family have profound consequences for the others; there are no political frontiers, barriers or walls behind which we can hide to protect one member from another against the effects of global warming.”

POPEFranciswavingReferring to Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, he said there was no room for the globalisation of indifference, the economy of exclusion or the throwaway culture.

“In the actions undertaken to counter global warming we have too often seen the predominance of special interests or so-called ‘free-riders’ over the common good; we have too often noted a certain suspicion or lack of trust on the part of States, as well as on the part of other participants,” Cardinal Parolin recognised.

He said if the international community really wishes to be effective, it must implement a “collective response based on a culture of solidarity, encounter and dialogue, which should be at the basis of normal interactions within every family and which requires the full, responsible and dedicated collaboration of all, according to their possibilities and circumstances.”

Cardinal Parolin warned that market forces alone, especially when deprived of a suitable ethical direction cannot resolve the interdependent crisis concerning global warming, poverty and exclusion.

“The greatest challenge lies in the sphere of human values and human dignity; questions which regard the human dignity of individuals and of peoples are not able to be reduced to mere technical problems.”   Source

Can it possibly be that neither Pope Francis nor Cardinal Parolin realise that the driving force behind the climate change scam is population control? Are they really that ignorant? Or are they merely (with all the respect due to their respective high offices, of course) merely useful idiots

Global Warming Scientists in Antartica: the stuff of comedy – and cover-up…

ImageWhen the Russian ship, Akademik Shokalskiy, became stranded in the Antarctic ice on Christmas Eve, the media couldn’t wait to cover stories about the ship and its inhabitants. What these reports failed to mention, however, was what the Russian ship was doing in Antarctica to begin with. The Akademik Shokalskiy carried climate change scientists who were looking to do global warming-related research.

According to NewsBusters:

The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.

In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as “passengers,” “trackers” and even “tourists,” without a word about climate change or global warming.

The blatant omission is egregious, but when you consider the fact that this particular incident is a black eye for the global warming movement, it’s really not all that surprising.

“It’s just unbelievable – the cover up,” Stu sad exasperatedly. “It’s amazing, the evidence coming out now. I mean they have had a rough go of it. If you are a global warming supporter, you have had a rough go over the past 7 or 8 years… As far as facts go, the earth did for a period of time between the 70s and the 80s. It hasn’t since… [But] they just keep doubling down and doubling down… I mean you have been doing this for 10 years and now it’s not working.”

As Glenn was quick to point out, however, is when the people who are in power and control the media are complicit, you can get away with just about anything.

“Well, it was working for… Kim Jong Un,” Glenn concluded. “You just keep denying by saying ‘The people are happy.’ ‘The people are fat and sassy.’ It works for him.”  Source (short video clip at source worth watching)

Catholic Truth Comment:

The above hilarious situation (where three rescue attempts had been thwarted by growing levels of sea ice and weather conditions) raises, afresh, the question of why Catholics are to be found among those gullible folk who believe in man-made climate change. Surely, we should know better?
