Pope Francis has warned that there will be "catastrophic" consequences for the planet unless global leaders agree on a plan to reduce the use of fossil fuels and tackle climate change.
"'Particular interests,' the pontiff insisted, should not be allowed to prevail over the common good in the fight against global warming and climate change," Crux reported on Francis' words at a U.N. campus in Nairobi, Kenya. "He also took an indirect shot at global warming skeptics, warning against 'manipulating information' to serve someone's 'plans and projects.'"
The Vatican leader's comments come just days ahead of the global climate change meeting that will take place Nov.30-Dec. 11 in Paris, where representatives from 194 countries will attend. more >>
Climate alarmists constantly revise their language in search of a catchy phrase that captures, and obscures, our reason and will. Hence, "catastrophic, anthropogenic (manmade) global warming" (CAGW—clear and specific) morphs into "global warming" (vague), which morphs into "climate change" (more vague).
Along with their language, they also revise their goals, expanding them to Herculean proportions with utopian promises.

With a shout of "fire in the hole" the thundering noise of explosives is heard followed by a cloud of dirt and a rush of water as the reservoir is broken. more >>
Ferngully beware! There is a new machine that can effectively cut down and chop up a tree in as little as a handful of seconds.
Known as the EcoLog 590, this claw-like creature can grab hold of a tree, cut it down, and then quickly remove its branches while sawing it into more smaller parts.
In a video posted to YouTube back in March, the EcoLog is shown making short work of its arboreal prey. more >>
Anglican leader the Most Rev. Justin Welby and Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I, joined together in a speech urging the world's Christians to lead the fight against climate change.
Bartholomew, the spiritual leader of close to 300 million Orthodox Christians, visited Welby at the Lambeth Palace in London this week, The Telegraph reported, and insisted that climate change is a "moral crisis."
Bartholomew called on Christians and people around the world to change their day-to-day behavior, instead of relying only on politicians making treaties concerning the environment. more >>
