Climate Change Impact on World’s Poor

CRS President, Ken Hackett, and the Rev. John McCullough, executive director and CEO of Church World Service, wrote an opinion piece on climate change for Roll Call’s website.

“The IPCC estimates that, if left unchecked, climate change may cause acute water shortages for up to 3 billion people, increase hunger for 30 million people, expand exposure to malaria for up to 60 million more Africans, and increase heat-related premature deaths even here in the U.S. Our staff and partners on the ground are witnesses to the beginnings of these trends,” they wrote.

    Nonsense! I can’t believe our Catholic institutions are falling for this climate change lie. IPCC is full of political hacks passing themselves off as scientists, whose agenda is to destroy liberty. They’re no friends of the Catholic church as they worship on the altar of “Mother Earth”. Anthropogenic Climate Change is a cultist LIE perpetrated by no friends of christianity. I’m going to withhold any contributions from organizations who associate themselves with it.

    Good on the Catholic church for showing the moral obligation we all have to address this VERY real world problem. God said: “Those who shut their ears to the cry of the poor will themselves also call and not be heard.”

    Caroline, surely you jest! You’re associating the “climate change” cult with the “cry of the poor”. Nothing could be further from the truth. The movement is perpetrated by big businesses and governments intent on further control of human behavior. Carbon credits, offsets, taxes, new and expensive energy technologies will do anything but help the poor. Just look at countries that are already implementing these nutty Kyoto policies.

    Incidentally, malaria mosquitos THRIVE in cold climates (search “malaria in Russia”). The reason there’s still a problem with malaria is because of the ban on DDT — another great environmentalist idea at the cost of millions of lives. It has nothing to do with global warming, which according to latest data isn’t even happening. IPCC is nothing but a cabal of big business and government recruited “scientists” to proclaim a foregone conclusion, while they demonize legitimate climate science and anyone who dares to question them. Debate is over? Oh really? They wish. Truth will prevail as it always does. Christ has already won and this insidious lie will be exposed. I only wish catholic institutions didn’t go down with it.
