Green opium


From the BBC:

Catholic bishops from around the world are calling for an end to fossil fuel use and increased efforts to secure a global climate treaty.

Catholics, they say, should engage with the process leading to a proposed new deal to be signed in Paris next year.

The statement is the first time that senior church figures from every continent have issued such a call.

Ah, so it is back to wood burning with burning at the stake for those who do not comply, perhaps?

Demetrius - the low emission version would be solar heating so not much of a threat at the moment.

This is the current issue in the church - infiltration and then rising into high places where there is a hierarchical system.

James - I think it's inevitable.
