Pope: ‘Deniers of Climate Change’ Are ‘Foolish’

Liberal Pope Francis has declared that “deniers of claim change” are “foolish” because “they don’t understand the situation” regarding “global warming.”

In a new interview, the head of the Catholic Church insisted that “climate change exists” while blasting those who don’t believe globalists’ “research.”

The pope made the comments to CBS Evening News in an interview that aired this week.

Francis decried those described as “deniers of climate change” by CBS’s Norah O’Donnell.

“There are people who are foolish,” the 87-year-old Pontiff responded.

The so-called “climate change deniers” are “foolish even if you show them research,” he blasted.

“They don’t believe it,” he added.

“Why? Because they don’t understand the situation or because of their interest, but climate change exists.”


The comments from Francis, who is not a scientist, are surprising considering the growing body of evidence that disputes his claims.

As Slay News previously reported, Nobel Prize winner Dr. John Clauser has argued that “misguided climate science has metastasized into massive shock-journalistic pseudoscience.” 

“In turn, the pseudoscience has become a scapegoat for a wide variety of other unrelated ills,” Clauser warns.

“It has been promoted and extended by similarly misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies, and environmentalists. In my opinion, there is no real climate crisis.”

CBS noted that Francis’ very brief comments will be expanded upon in a longer “60 Minutes” episode on May 19.

Francis has indeed made the talking point of “climate change” a central one in his 11-year pontificate along with the promotion of an “ecological spirituality.” 

The pope has long promoted the globalist “green agenda” of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the United Nations (UN).

After many years of climate alarmism rhetoric from the Pontiff, in 2022 the Vatican officially joined the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the WEF’s Paris Climate Agreement.

Francis, who is listed as a WEF “agenda contributor,” defended the controversial move, saying that “she [‘Mother Earth’] weeps and implores us to put an end to our abuses and to her destruction.”

His continued promotion of the WEF’s “Net Zero” agenda as dictated by the Paris Agreement.

The agreement underpins the majority of the globalists’ current “climate change” agenda.

Consequently, the Pope’s “climate change” rhetoric has also earned criticism from prelates within the Church.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider joined the late Cardinal George Pell in condemning Francis’ concept of “ecological conversion,” with Schneider arguing it was “an expression of pure naturalism… there is no supernatural vision or a very vacant supernatural vision.”

“Ecological conversion is an abuse of this concept of conversion itself,” he stated.

Meanwhile, the comments from the pope come as the WEF’s anti-carbon agenda was thoroughly debunked by a major study this week.

As Slay News reported, a bombshell new peer-reviewed study has provided conclusive scientific evidence proving that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in Earth’s atmosphere cannot cause “global warming.”

Dr. Jan Kubicki led a group of world-renowned Polish scientists to study the impact of increases in CO2 emissions on the Earth’s global temperatures.

However, not only did they find that higher levels of CO2 made no difference, but they also proved that it simply isn’t possible for increases in carbon dioxide to cause temperatures to rise.

Kubicki and his team recently published three papers which all conclude that Earth’s atmosphere is already “saturated” with carbon dioxide.

This saturation means that, even at greatly increased levels of CO2, the “greenhouse gas” cannot and will not cause temperatures to rise.
