Pope Calls for Carbon Tax

Timothy Birdnow

Pope Francis - whose job is primarily saving souls from Hell - is calling for a carbon tax to stop global warming, an urban legend.

According to Reuters:

Pope Francis said on Friday that carbon pricing is "essential" to stem global warming - his clearest statement yet in support of penalising polluters - and appealed to climate change deniers to listen to science.

In an address to energy executives at the end of a two-day meeting, he also called for "open, transparent, science-based and standardised" reporting of climate risk and a "radical energy transition" away from carbon to save the planet.

Carbon pricing, via taxes or emissions trading schemes, is used by many governments to make energy consumers pay for the costs of using the fossil fuels that contribute to global warming, and to spur investment in low-carbon technology.

First, the Pope has no background in science and his judgment is merely personal opinion. Second, his job is saving souls, not saving the planet from industrial civilization. He is overstepping his authority here.

If Francis spent any time doing what he should be doing - openly teaching Catholic doctrine, calling for repentance from Sin, etc - instead of sticking his nose into a political issue, he would be on solid ground. But this is not his place.

I remember when Francis was asked about homosexuality he replied "who am I too judge". Catholic doctrine calls homosexuality a mortal sin, meaning homosexuals go to Hell. That clearly IS something he is supposed to judge. He's unwilling to judge that, but more than happy to judge in this instance. Francis hates capitalism. He's a fool, because more people have suffered poverty and died under socialism than other any other form of economic system. But Francis wants us to reduce our industrial base and doesn't understand that this will make so many people very poor. He often spouts off about a "preferential option for the poor" yet he will make many, many more of them. People die in economic downturns, especially in the Third World. Francis, by his plea to impose carbon taxes, is promoting poverty and death.

He's going to have to answer for that.
