Pope Francis Makes Biblical Case For Addressing Climate Change: ‘If We Destroy Creation, Creation Will Destroy Us’



Pope Francis made the religious case for tackling climate change on Wednesday, calling on his fellow Christians to become “Custodians of Creation” and issuing a dire warning about the potentially catastrophic effects of global climate change.

Speaking to a massive crowd in Rome, the first Argentinian pope delivered a short address in which he argued that respect for the “beauty of nature and the grandeur of the cosmos” is a Christian value, noting that failure to care for the planet risks apocalyptic consequences.
 
“Safeguard Creation,” he said. “Because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us! Never forget this!”

The pope centered his environmentalist theology around the biblical creation story in the book of Genesis, where God is said to have created the world, declared it “good,” and charged humanity with its care. Francis also made reference to his namesake, Saint Francis of Assisi, who was a famous lover of animals, and appeared to tie the ongoing environmental crisis to economic concerns — namely, instances where a wealthy minority exploits the planet at the expense of the poor.

“Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less, is the property of only a few: Creation is a gift,  it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude,” Francis said.

Francis also said that humanity’s destruction of the planet is a sinful act, likening it to self-idolatry.


“But when we exploit Creation we destroy the sign of God’s love for us, in destroying Creation we are saying to God: ‘I don’t like it! This is not good!’ ‘So what do you like?’ ‘I like myself!’  – Here, this is sin! Do you see?”

The pope’s comments come on the heels of a five-day summit on sustainability convened at the Vatican earlier this month. The summit, entitled “Sustainable Humanity, Sustainable Nature, Our Responsibility,” drew together microbiologists, legal scholars, economists, philosophers, astronomers, and other experts to discuss ways for the Catholic church to address a range issues caused by climate change. In a joint statement published after the close of the conference, participants echoed Francis’ belief that environmental justice and economic justice are inextricably linked.

“Human action which is not respectful of nature becomes a boomerang for human beings that creates inequality and extends what Pope Francis has termed ‘the globalization of indifference’ and the ‘economy of exclusion’ (Evangelii Gaudium), which themselves endanger solidarity with present and future generations,” the statement read.

The pontiff’s catechesis and the Vatican’s summit appear to be part of a renewed effort by the Catholic church to draw attention to environmental issues. Keeping with a long history of Catholic environmentalism (including several pro-environmentalist sermons delivered by Pope Benedict XVI, Francis’ predecessor), Francis addressed climate change in his inaugural mass as pope, and is rumored to be working on a formal encyclical on the environment.

New Video Turns Up the Heat on GOP Climate Change Deniers


EcoWatch | June 4, 2014 3:11 pm In support of President Obama’s plan to cut carbon emissions, Americans United for Change released a video today calling out climate deniers in the GOP.

Not A Scientist features members of Congress, potential presidential candidates and Republican leaders—from Marco Rubio to John Boehner—all preaching from the same climate skeptic handbook and refusing to acknowledge the overwhelming scientific evidence that supports man-made climate change.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWc0XhIGgRQ&feature=player_embedded

“The GOP’s new talking point when challenged on climate change is ‘I’m no scientist’, and yet they remain 100 percent certain as that 97 percent of the scientific community is pulling a fast one on us all for no explicable reason,” said Jeremy Funk of Americans United for Change. “Could it be because Big Oil and the pollution-profiting Koch brothers have given Republicans tens of millions of reasons to feign or maintain ignorance to the detriment of our environment, health and national security?” 


While the Republican party maintains their ignorance, a new poll commissioned by Americans United for Change shows that crucial Independent voters are not sympathetic to this anti-science position,   ;D with only 29 percent open to supporting a climate skeptic in the 2016 presidential elections.

This is a historical film.  ;D No, not because the USA wants to beat the Russians to own a flying saucer so they can carry NUCLEAR BOMBS  :P, it's because of all the glacier scenes!

I will dig up some current photos of the area and make a few screen shots from the movie to compare soon. Meanwhile, check it out!

P.S. The cigarette companies must have funded the movie.  ;) 

Just about everyone smokes like a fiend!

I hear Sen Inhofe says the solutions to 'climate change' are "too costly". Never mind that continuing to burn fossil fuels is 'too stupid". When we humans start doing something because it is 'smart' instead of 'cheap', we may have a thriving planet to pass on to our great great grandchildren. As of now, it looks like they'll get a smoldering wreck. We can prevent this. Today is the day to change course. We can do this. We really can.

California is under a DROUGHT. Shut the water off to the 900 Golf Courses statewide
author: Nicholas Pierotti
target: Governor Jerry Brown
signatures: 538

we've got 538 signatures, help us get to 1,000

overview


As the State of California has now been officially declared to be in a drought emergency, I have to ask: Are all the 900 golf courses in the State still being watered? I'd say we cut those off so that people will have water to drink and cook and wash with.

Golf is NOT a necessary activity.

SHUT 'EM OFF!

Who really NEEDS golf courses. NOBODY. The water should be used for necessary activities. Let's shut off the water to the golf courses state-wide. 


If you agree, help Nicholas Pierotti by signing his petition:

  Is the Arctic Warming Faster than the Rest of the World?

The Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the world — twice as fast, on average. From the 1970s through the 2000s. However, the average temperature of some parts of the Arctic has increased 10 times more  :o than the average worldwide temperature increase of 0.36 degrees Fahrenheit (0.2 degrees Celsius) per decade. The Arctic, Earth's ice-covered most northern region, is thought to be warming more quickly than the rest of Earth because of the albedo effect, which occurs when the loss of ice reduces the reflection of the sun’s heat back into space, and instead uncovers bare water and rock that take in and store the sun’s heat.

More about the Arctic:

•The amount of ice in the Arctic region decreased 14% from the 1970s to 2012.

•Eight countries have regions that extend into the Arctic: Canada, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the US.

•Polar bears are located only in the Arctic, and environmentalists project that they could be extinct by the year 2100 if the region continues to warm at the projected rate.

http://www.wisegeek.com/is-the-arctic-warming-faster-than-the-rest-of-the-world.htm

Agelbert NOTE: A lot more species than polar bears, including Homo SAP, may be extinct by the year 2100 if the suicidal trajectory we or on is not changed within a decade or so.  >:(
