His Holiness Pope Francis Condemns Climate Deniers, “History Will Judge These Leaders”

With climate change as serious as it is, anyone who voted for a climate change denier, a conman liar and criminal really doesn’t take anything seriously. Trump is a reality TV star who lies like a rug and looks like a clown in orange makeup. Who would elect such a buffoon in such a serious time, when even the Vatican which has spent centuries literally burning scientists at the stake, now believe in science. Oh wait, racists and Trumpanzees, that’s who would vote for a clown.  Pope Francis has warned history will judge world leaders who do not act as he blasted climate change sceptics in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.  The pontiff said the recent storms meant the effects of climate change could be seen “with your own eyes”.

There have been four major Atlantic hurricanes in less than three weeks.

 

But US Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt said it was an inappropriate time to discuss what role climate change may have played.

 

Mr Pruitt – who has previously said he “would not agree” that carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming – told CNN current speculation “on the cause and effect of the storm… is misplaced”.

Instead, Mr Pruitt said the conversation should be focused on the clean up effort.

Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado – whose city ended up partially underwater as Hurricane Irma swept across Florida – disagreed however, telling the Miami Herald newspaper: “This is the time to talk about climate change. This is the time that the president and the EPA and whoever makes decisions needs to talk about climate change.”
