Yeah, I do think it is better to be warm than have a large portion of the planet ocvered with miles thich ice sheets.
Right about what? Spending $600,000,000 on soalr for the Vatican is absurd.

Practice what you preach, or, lead by example.
I'm soooooo sick of folks with authority telling us mere serfs to "do what's right", while they live lavish lifestyles.
How much electricity does the Vatican use? Where does their heat come from?
Burning wood has now been deemed bad, so where exactly do we get heat from? Cuddled masses?
As a believer in the flying spaghetti monster in the sky, I say cram your political thoughts up your popeness ass!
Preach religion not politics!
The thing is...why should he do it if no one else will?
Because he's the one telling ME how to live. It REALLY gets under my skin when folks with authority tell me how to live while they continue with their lavish ways. Look at Gore, jet setting across the globe telling the world about the DANGERS and DOOM of climate change. His carbon footprint is bigger than some towns, and yet he has the nerve to tell me to be more responsible?
LEAD BY EXAMPLE!
If climate change is indeed as horrible and life threatening as they say it is, why aren't the people preaching the doom doing more to combat the situation? Preaching awareness does NOTHING to combat the situation.
Someone has to start actually doing something about this impending crises, how about we start with the folks that preach the doom?

We have to face it. The pope calling for removal of fossil fuel without DELAY, practically called for DISCLOSURE of secret tech, or tech that is not secret but never used (as Tesla). Perhaps Francis wouldn't change his view so much until the September UN and US congress speeches. The world should have Disclosure of new tech by then. Hydrogen and electric cars alone would not suffice to make the entire energy sector on new base. More tech is needed. Such as atmospheric electricity etc. Tech known for 100 years.

This. Also I doubt they teach engineering and physics in Pope school.
What do they teach in Med school Doc?
Is this concept beyond you?
Population Control Is Not the Answer
For Pope Francis, caring about the environment goes hand in hand with taking a strong stand against abortion. "Since everything is interrelated, concern for the protection of nature is also incompatible with the justification of abortion," the encyclical says. "How can we genuinely teach the importance of concern for other vulnerable beings, however troublesome or inconvenient they may be, if we fail to protect a human embryo, even when its presence is uncomfortable and creates difficulties?"
Francis suggests that efforts to slow population growth are misguided and a distraction from the underlying cause of the world's environmental crisis—the hoarding of the Earth's resources by the rich and powerful. "To blame population growth instead of extreme and selective consumerism on the part of some, is one way of refusing to face the issues," the encyclical says.
