Pope: Don't believe that global warming crap either

Posted on Wed, Dec 12, 2007 at 4:20 PM



His Holiness has also declared that while keeping the environment up is good and all, this whole global warming thing is a touch overblown, so we shouldn't get all atwitter about it.



"The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.

The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement."


OK, so that makes him a run-of-the-mill global warming denier, and puts him at odds with like 98.7 percent of the earth science community (like the Catholic church has never been there before). Still, he looks friggin' super-sane compared to this mustache (see photo), who says we shouldn't worry about global warming because God never said anything about carbon dioxide being bad for us in the Bible or something:



While few can argue with the biblical mandate to be good stewards of the planet, the "Evangelical Climate Initiative" calls for both individual action and immediate government action to curtail carbon dioxide emissions. This despite the fact that man-caused carbon dioxide emissions represent only an infinitesimally small percentage of CO2 present in the atmosphere. This despite the fact that there is no evidence carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere cause global warming. And this despite God's promise in Genesis 8:22 that He alone controls the world's temperature and climate, not man: "While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

God said it. He believes it. That's that.
