Archdiocese of Sydney – February 18, 2007

This article is more of an open letter from Cardinal Pell, Cardinal Priest of the Title of S. Maria Domenica Mazzarello. It is interesting, not in the discussion of facts (as these are not really mentioned) but in the advice that weather and climate are quite complicated and we really don’t understand it enough to draw conclusions.

We have been subjected to a lot of nonsense about climate disasters as some zealots have been painting extreme scenarios to frighten us.

I am deeply skeptical about man-made catastrophic global warming, but still open to further evidence. I would be surprised if industrial pollution, and carbon emissions, had no ill effect at all. But enough is enough.
