It’s sumthin’ when the world’s storyteller-in-chief has to come out against the telling of stories he apparently finds even more far fetched than the ones he tells.
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.
The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that
fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave
of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.
Of course, it could be seen as just coming out against a competing faith. They both have all the essential elements: original sin, certain damnation, and a path to salvation.
