Pope’s top adviser blasts US climate skeptics

2962By Timothy Cama - 05/12/15

Pope Francis’ closest adviser castigated conservative climate change skeptics in the United States Tuesday, blaming capitalism for their views.  Speaking with journalists, Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga criticized certain “movements” in the United States that have preemptively come out in opposition to Francis’s planned encyclical on climate change.......Francis’s top stated goal for the encyclical, to encourage Catholics to fight climate change and influence the U.N.’s process........The Heartland Institute, funded in part by the billionaire conservative brothers Charles and David Koch, has taken the lead on countering Francis’s encyclical.  The right wing group sent climate change deniers to the Vatican last month to try to convince top Catholic officials that human activity is not harming the planet, and there is no need for Francis’s action….To Read More……

My Take - Is any wonder I hear Catholics asking...."Who picked this guy?" As for the Heartland Institute being funded by the Koch brothers - that's a logical fallacy, largely misleading and most importantly......... so what? What terrible things have the Koch brothers supported? Stuff like less government, less regulation, less taxes and more personal freedom and responsibility.  Wow!  Just how scary is that?

Now let's take George Soros, who funds leftist groups that support suppression of freedom, more taxes, more regulations, more government,....and he's a crook. These leftist "journalists" don't seem to be all that afraid of Soros or his funding practices, but they're petrified of the Koch brothers.  Perhaps we should thank all these "journalists" who constantly insist on throwing up to the world who the Koch brothers fund. That way we know who to thank.

Thank you Koch brothers!
