The Pope Will Place The Catholic Church Against Climate Change
The debate about climate change has generally been about the science behind climate change. The vast majority of the scientific community has little doubt about human contribution to climate changes but the general public has been confused by skeptics who have generally been associated with the fossil fuel industry. The pope will issue an encyclical which turns the debate into a moral issue. It will declare that the morality of economic development must be changed. An encyclical is a teaching document which clarifies the position of the Church on theological issues. This encyclical will turn a largely secular debate into a moral and ethical issue.
