1) Above is a link to an article from today where Pope Benedict XVI makes a surpirsing(but refreshing) statement that "any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not on dubious ideology. "
2) He went on to say: 'fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering. '.....it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement.'
3) His remarks reveal that while the Pope acknowledges that problems may be associated with unbridled development and climate change, he believes the case against global warming to be over-hyped. Thank you !!!
