Caveat: The pope has said the announcement was leaked to discredit him and some of the quotes have been removed fr the final document.
According to a leaked draft of the papal climate change encyclical, Pope Francis will call for dramatic changes in lifestyles and energy consumption to avert the “unprecedented destruction of the ecosystem” before the end of this century. The draft is being described by the Vatican as the pope’s reflection of humanity’s God-given responsibility as custodians of the Earth.
The pope is calling for a GLOBAL AUTHORITY to deal with climate change, the poor and injustice. Such an authority, managed by a super-UN, will tax the wealthier nations and redistribute the funds. He rejects carbon credits and wants something far more massive and better organized.
What is being described in translations of the leaked draft is a socialist one world government apparatus.
“L’Espresso leaked the documents in advance of the Thursday announcement. They have linked the entire 192-page document in Italian.
The Vatican says some passages in the draft are different from the final encyclical and the leak was meant to damage the pope.
This encyclical is very dangerous because one-third of the U.S. population is Catholic and 70% of them believe the climate change theories are fact.
The pope will make the following points.
1. Global Warming Is Real
Climate change is mostly man-made. He can’t possibly know that but he will say it. He will not accept any other explanation.
“The attitudes that stand in the way of a solution, even among believers, range from negation of the problem, to indifference, to convenient resignation or blind faith in technical solutions.”
He clearly has thrown his hat into the ring with Barack Obama and rejects all opposition.
“Faced with the global deterioration of the environment, I want to address every person who inhabits this planet,” the pope wrote. “In this encyclical, I especially propose to enter into discussion with everyone regarding our common home.”
2. Fossil Fuels Are The Problem
Oil and natural gas must be phased out.
He iterates the false claims of the seas rising though there is no proof presented. His paper is not scientific as the Vatican has stated. Yet he will blame fossil fuels and demand we switch from them to renewables.
3. It is the job of government and the socialist/communist U.N. to act with the global taxation adopted at the climate summit.
He has called for a global authority “tackling…the reduction of pollution and the development of poor countries and regions.” He wants a super-UN to deal with the world’s economic problems and injustices as it the current socialist UN isn’t bad enough.
This global authority would tax globally to take from the rich nations and give to the poor. Since most richer nations will not cooperate, it will fall on the U.S.
He rejects carbon credits and demands a global accord. The world’s rich must take steps to mitigate the damage by reducing consumption and reliance on fossil fuels.
He calls for more ‘investment’ in renewable energy and in others for evening out the “ecological debt” between the Northern and Southern hemispheres, wealthy and poor countries.
3. Governments Must Act Immediately
The document is meant to influence the U.S. government and the U.N. climate talks this year in Paris. He wants treaties, global agreements that cannot change as politicians come in and out of office.
4. Global Warming Is Hurting the Poor and the Rich Must Assume the Costs
We must think globally and invest in the poor.
It is the poor who are suffering from global warming because of the greed and selfishness of those who are not poor. Greedy nations will of necessity give up what they have as part of this incredibly massive redistribution of wealth.
Wealthy nations are painted as indiscriminate thieves and plunderers of the earth’s resources.
He does not address the fact that rising energy costs would seriously hurt the poor.
The pope associates pollution and global inequality:
“I’d like to point out that the problems that hit harder at those who are excluded are often not very clear. They are the majority of those who live on the planet, they’re billions of people. They get mentioned during international political and economic debates, but their problems are mostly introduced as an addendum, something you add almost out of duty or as something peripheral. . . . But today we can’t avoid stating that a true ecological approach must always become a social approach, integrating justice in the debate around environment, so that we listen to the cry of Earth as much as we listen to the one of the poor.”
The National Journal says the Papal paper “goes after inaction by developed nations which have – according to Francis – been “consuming resources without concern for the planet or the poor”.
The Guardian and Mother Jones reported that he sees as negative – privatization of green spaces and the disposal of industrial waste.
If he wants to go after “privatization”, he is supporting the core precept of Marxist ideology.
It looks like the pope is calling for one world order and global control of consumption, production, private space, and disposal of waste with wealth redistribution as the banking mechanism. We do, however, have to wait for the final encyclical.
The United States is far more responsible than other nations of earth. He is directly attacking our way of life, our sovereignty, our morals, free enterprise, and our freedom.
Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI have warned of climate abuses and called for changes in usage. Pope Francis is not the first to do so.
Rick Santorum, a Republican presidential contender and devout Catholic, has urged Pope Francis to leave “science to the scientists.” The Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank that refutes the reality of global warming, even sent a delegation of scientists to the Vatican in an attempt to persuade Francis to stand down.
He will not listen.
