A "very solid scientific consensus," he wrote, indicates a warming of the climate mainly due to human activity… Predictably, Pope Francis’ message was cheered by climate scientists and jeered by "climate skeptics."… In a way, that’s what Pope Francis did- pointing out the massive human suffering that will result if nothing is done to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere… Looking for reliable information about climate change?
