The Pope and Climate Change

It would be presumptuous and previous of me to let anyone in the Tavern get away with discussing the Pope's Encyclical on Climate Change.  I would have to point out that he has not sent owt out yet.

From what I have heard from some mutterings and guffaws it will be a doozy that may even rise to the challenge of the 'Galileo Trial incident' which has fueled centuries of guffaws. A New Record may be in the offing.
Did you hear the one about......

So, for instance, Sam Guzman, a fine Catholic Gentleman, started off yesterday....


Both secular environmentalists and Catholics are waiting with bated breath for the release of Pope Francis’ new encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si. Many Catholics are deeply worried that the pope will play into the agenda of radical environmentalists, while many secularists are thrilled that the pope will seemingly endorse their worldview.
I haven’t read the Holy Father’s encyclical yet (yes, it was leaked, but I don’t read Italian), so I don’t have anything to say about it—but I do have a few thoughts about our relation to the natural world, as it is a topic I have thought about quite a bit. I’m going to wade into controversial waters today and share them with you. Here they are in no particular order.
It doesn't matter !
OK, he did have more to say, and a sound person, a Christian and a Catholic can have their say on environmental matters just like anyone else, but..... you can read more, where he makes his usual sound points, here.....
Popes, frankly, in an 'umble Tavern Keepers view, should stick to doctrines of old and not go along with turning modernist, socialist, One World Order clap-trap into Holy Writ.

So instead we had the splendid fellow Mark Steyn say a few words on 'associated' matters with which he is far more familiar. That being his own legal stoush with Dr (Nobel Prozac recipient) Michael Mann.

Mark, was as usual very entertaining in the Canada Room.

I shall leave you in his fine, page-turning hands.

I hope any questions that you might have had in mind were answered.

And we can look forward to the Pope's views when they eventually arrive.

I might just get back to those on another day when the fog clears.

Our Bouncer is a gentleman of muscle and guile. His patience has limits. He will check you at the door.

The Tavern gets rowdy visitors from time to time. Some are brain dead and some soul dead. They attack customers and the bar staff and piss on the carpets. Those people will not be allowed in anymore. So... Be Nice..
