The Pope speaks out

The Pope condemns the climate change prophets

Pope Benedict XVI has launched a surprise attack on climate change prophets of doom, warning them that any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not on dubious ideology. [...]

[...] he German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement. [...]

[...] The 80-year-old Pope said the world needed to care for the environment but not to the point where the welfare of animals and plants was given a greater priority than that of mankind. [...]

The enviro freaks won't be liking this one bit... I can hear them now... "what does a religious leader know about science?", "He does not believe in science, he believes in God!" etc etc... This is getting better every day...
