Pope Francis has issued a new climate alarmist letter in which he claims that humans are causing earthquakes by emitting “carbon emissions.”
At one point, Francis suggests humans are causing “seaquakes” by ignoring the green agenda.
He continues by alleging that the world is “collapsing and may be nearing the breaking point” due to “climate change.”
The pope’s latest warnings about “global warming” are contained in an “Apostolic Exhortation” titled Laudate Deum.
It is a follow-up to an earlier doom-ridden encyclical letter in 2015 when he referred to CO2 as highly polluting.
The latest letter is full of emotional errors, unsubstantiated scientific opinions, and a cold condescension for the growing number of scientists who dispute the political narrative of a climate emergency.
At one point, these scientists are said to bring up “allegedly solid scientific facts.”
Francis doesn’t provide any evidence to support these “scientific facts,” however.
Francis is on very shaky ground with his contention that humans somehow cause submarine earthquakes.
The claims from the pope are the latest in a long line of fearmongering allegations about the climate that don’t stand up to scrutiny.
A recent article in the Conversation noted “evidence” that the loss of surface ice in Scandinavia triggered numerous earthquake events around 7,000-11,000 years ago.
However, further inquiry showed that there was no tectonic plate action during the period claimed.
Seaquakes would appear to be a new field of climate alarm, suggesting Francis is well ahead of the game on this one.
The pope is also leading the pack with his contention that the melting of the continental ice sheets at the poles will not be reversed for hundreds of years.
What melting of the ice sheet in Antarctica Francis is referring to is not immediately clear.
According to Singh and Polvani, warming has been “almost non-existent” for at least 70 years.
NASA, meanwhile, reports the ice loss is 0.0005% a year.
In 2021, the South Pole recorded its coldest winter since records began in 1957.
Meanwhile in the Arctic, a small, little publicized, cyclical recovery in sea ice has been underway for over a decade.
In his letter, Francis declares that it is “verifiable that specific climate changes provoked by humanity are notably heightening the probability of extreme phenomena that are increasingly frequent and intense”.
Despite all attempts to deny, conceal, gloss over, or relativize the issue, the signs of climate change are here and increasingly evident, Francis insists.
The pope argues that no one can ignore recent extreme weather events such as droughts, floods, and unusual heat, which, according to Francis, are caused by “manmade climate change.”
Why a man of God would claim that there were no extreme weather events prior to the Industrial Revolution wasn’t explained in Francis’s letter, however.
“I feel obliged to make these clarifications, which may appear obvious, because of certain dismissive and scarcely reasonable opinions that I encounter, even within the Catholic Church,” states Francis.
In a 2020 encyclical letter, Francis spoke of the possibility of a single world authority “equipped with the power to provide for the global common good.”
The one world government should be given “real authority in such a way as to provide for the attainment of certain goals,” he argued.
In this way, there could come about a multilateralism that is not dependent on changing political conditions or the interest of a certain few, and possesses a stable efficacy, he concluded.
