Steven Lyazi is a member of the EFN-USA Board of Advisors in Kampala, Uganda. He writes about how African countries desperately need more energy from fossil fuels and eventually nuclear power. Working to reduce use of fossil fuels and nuclear is another person of African roots, Barack Obama, President of the United States. He promotes wind and solar for the world. We encourage support for this outstanding young person and others like him from Uganda. It is an effective way to help make a better future for Africans.
Pope Francis: Deterioration has increased in recent decades: constant pollution, continued use of fossil fuels, intensive agricultural exploitation and deforestation are causing global temperatures to rise above safe levels. The increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather phenomena and the desertification of the soil are causing immense hardship for the most vulnerable among us. Melting of glaciers, scarcity of water, neglect of water basins and the considerable presence of plastic and microplastics in the oceans are equally troubling, and testify to the urgent need for interventions that can no longer be postponed. We have caused a climate emergency that gravely threatens nature and life itself, including our own. Now is the time to repent and return to our roots.
University of Notre Dame, Pope Francis: Three years ago, Pope Francis issued a sweeping letter that highlighted the global crisis posed by climate change and called for swift action to save the environment and the planet. On June 9, 2018, the Pope gathered money managers and titans of the world’s biggest oil companies during a closed-door conference at the Vatican and asked them if they had gotten the message. “There is no time to lose,” Francis told them.
(Catholic Church, Pope Francis, Paul Driessen, CFACT) USofA Vatican Italy - A conversation or lecture on climate change02.Jan.2020
Paul Driessen, senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, Pope Francis: We must “enter into dialogue with all people about our common home,” Pope Francis recently told the US Congress, frequently quoting from his Laudato Si encyclical. “We need a conversation which includes everyone, since the environmental challenge … and its human roots concern and affect us all.” I couldn’t agree more. Unfortunately, the pontiff seems more interested in a lecture than a conversation on climate change. The pope’s advisors believe humans are destroying our planet and dangerously changing its climate. This website shows over a thousand photos of how beautiful the world is today with snow falling from the Equator to the Poles. How much more snow do climate alarmists need in order that they will permit the world to continue using fossil fuels?
