Pope urges politicians to take 'drastic measures' on climate change and reduce the use of fossil fuels

Recommended Posts

Welp, I have a (mostly tongue in cheek) suggestion for others to consider, in response to this Pope's persistent and increasing attacks on the oil & gas industry.

Pope urges politicians to take 'drastic measures' on climate change

"Pope Francis challenged governments on Sunday to take “drastic measures” to combat global warming and reduce the use of fossil fuels, saying the world was experiencing a climate emergency.  ..."

 

==============================

Here ya go, Mr. Pope:

There is actually a lot of sense in the above wall poster.  Not buying Chinese goods lowers the overall use of oil in that the ships that haul goods and materials into and out of China now use up about 4% of annual consumption. Production facilities that manufacture goods locally at least avoid all that transport fuel. Plus it avoids the transfer of wealth to China, an interesting political goal. 

I am a great believer in Americans buying American-made goods. Makes much more sense to me.

First, I think that there are a few other nations who can claim the title of ‘most polluting nation’. ‘First’ polluting nation doesn’t even make sense.

Secondly, even supposing the ‘warnings’ are based on fact, not fiction, how did you arrive at the fact that the US was the first to ignore them? Supporting evidence would be instructive.

Finally, how does war ‘preserve’ oil?

Judging by your presentation and comments you are yet another troll with the apparent IQ of frozen yogurt.

Maybe the Pope should focus on child abuse.

Leave the climate to the experts.

Just an idea.
