Pope Francis is continuing to sound the alarm over what he calls man-made “global warming,” but some commentators believe that he is factually wrong.
Many individuals, think tanks and special interest groups ascribing to the environmentalist movement promoted by governments worldwide believe that man’s burning of fossil fuels is resulting in heat-trapping emissions that drive up temperature and cause larger, more powerful storms.
Pope Francis is among those who believe that this weather phenomenon is real, that it is bad and that it is going to get worse. This month, the pope said that destroying the environment is a sin, and asserted that people should take steps to reduce waste, plant trees and carpool.
Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation Founder Cal Beisner argues that the pope and other radical environmentalists promoting the idea of global warming are simply wrong.
“There are no upwards trends in droughts, floods, fires or any extreme weather,” Beisner asserts. “Therefore, for the pope to say that climate change driven by human activity is leading to ever more severe droughts, floods, fires and extreme weather events is simply false – factually false.”
