Benny Peiser's Global Warming Policy Foundation Reports That the UK Council Recommends Green Light For British Shale Revolution While Pope Francis Declares Global Warming ‘Mostly Man-Made’
Editor's Note: Going back to the end of the 19th century when European socialism was attempting to make inroads in the United States they had a foundational difficulty. It was atheistic in nature and at that time religious belief was the standard. So they adopted the moniker - Progressives - changing themselves into an angel of light by making religion the binding force for the progressivism. Shocked? That’s where the Progressive Gospel came from. That's history, and you may wish to read Jonah Goldberg's account of this in his book Liberal Fascism. But after WWII they didn't need these heretical religionists any longer and kicked them to the curb. However, they’re not above trotting out leftist heretics from among these outwardly religious groups when it suits their needs, as they’ve done with the Pope. The Pope will find these new found friends will abandon him as soon as it's convenient, and then mock him, his church, and the idea of a supreme being. And what will all of this insanity from the Pope have gained him or the world? Nothing! But we need to understand this. This is a desperate last ditch effort on the part of the green left to promote this massive hoax by binding religion to their cause, because facts are destroying their cause around them. So much for the brilliance of a Jesuit trained mind and Papal infallibility.
UK Council Recommends Green Light For British Shale Revolution - Shale gas firm Cuadrilla Resources received a boost in its plan to start fracking in north west England on Monday when local government recommended that its application to drill up to four exploration wells should be granted. The company’s project at Preston New Road near Blackpool could become Britain’s first shale gas production wells, and could lead a drive to develop the unconventional resource as Britain’s North Sea gas and oil production declines. --Reuters, 15 June 2015
Britain’s Crazy Climate Policy: Forests Go Up In Smoke - Where have all our woods gone? Up in smoke – as the new trendy ‘green’ wood-burning stoves and boilers (funded by tax millions) are being fuelled by birches and oaks… leaving swathes of Britain barren. --David Rose, Mail on Sunday, 14 June 2015
Pope Francis Declares Global Warming ‘Mostly Man-Made’ - Pope Francis said Thursday he is convinced that global warming is "mostly" man-made and that he hopes his upcoming encyclical on the environment will encourage negotiators at a climate change meeting in Paris to make "courageous" decisions to protect God's creation. While in the Philippines, Francis will meet with survivors of the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan, which the government has said was an example of the extreme weather conditions that global warming has wrought. --Nicol Winfielde, Associated Press, 15 June 2015
Germany Must Accept Poland’s Coal Security Needs - President-Elect's Aide - The foreign policy adviser to Poland's president-elect has signalled a more assertive approach to Germany, saying Berlin must end its opposition to NATO military bases on Polish soil and also accept Warsaw's wish to protect its coal industry. Szczerski made clear Duda would challenge Germany on European Union energy policy too, where Berlin is a major advocate of renewable forms of energy and of cutting the bloc's reliance on carbon-emitting fuels such as coal. "Berlin must agree to such adjustments of EU's climate and energy policy that will allow the continued mining of Polish coal," he said. --Reuters, 14 June 2015
