Climate Change: Pupils Protest – Are They Not Taught Critical Thinking?

Tomorrow, pupils across the UK are walking out of school, on strike in protest against the climate change caused by Joe Bloggs, which is allegedly destroying the planet.  Click here to read this news, widely report in the print and broadcasting media across the UK.  Then take five minutes to listen to the short video clip below, to recall what happened to one climate scientist when she began to ask for, er… data…
In October 2018, we discussed her persecution here

Share your poll responses below – are these pupils conscientious, or do they simply lack the critical ability to recognise fake news when they come across it, whether in the print or broadcasting media – or in a biased science lesson? 

Red Alert! Scotland’s Snowpocalypse?

Comment: 

I’ve been obeying the Government for once, and stayed indoors today. The snow just keeps coming… and I just keep asking what on earth is causing this? 

Or is nothing on earth causing this?  I’ve no idea, but I hear what our Transport Minister has been saying on this evening’s news, which has mostly been about the weather:  this level of snow is unprecedented.  This is the first ever “red” alert warning in Scotland, which means life is in danger.  

Personally, I’ve no idea what’s causing this, and the scientists seem to have gone to ground.  In any event, I’m not convinced by the Climate Change industry’s theories about population control and plastic bags.  What about you? 

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?
