Paul Driessen. Pope Francis’s Laudato Si encyclical is often eloquent, always passionate, but too often encumbered by platitudes and simply erroneous thinking. The pope believes climate change is largely manmade and driven by a capitalist economic system that exploits the poor. I believe Pope Francis went wrong – free market capitalism and hydrocarbon energy remain the best way forward at this time.

It matters not that the predicted Climate Change calamities are not happening. There has been no warming in 19 years, no category 3-5 hurricanes making US landfall for a record 9-1/2 years, indeed none of the over-hyped climate disasters occurring in the real world..In fact, poor nations support the treaty mostly because it promises some $100 billion per year in adaptation, mitigation and compensation money from Formerly Rich Countries that have shackled their own job creation, economic growth and living standards in the name of stabilizing Earth’s perpetually fluctuating climate.
