Did you ever wonder what Pope Benedict thinks about global warming? He made a telling intervention in the recent Bali conference, releasing a message prepared for World Peace Day fully three weeks earlier than scheduled, just to emphasize the point. He said:

Any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not dubious ideology.

On rare occasions, words fail me. This is such an occasion.

EDIT: this was the reporter's putting words in the pope's mouth - the actual speech

the actual words may not be that much bettter

"Humanity today is rightly concerned about the ecological balance of tomorrow. It is important for assessments in this regard to be carried out prudently, in dialogue with experts and people of wisdom, uninhibited by ideological pressure to draw hasty conclusions "

RAMen !!!

How to treat the environment is all about ideology, it was ideology as soon as humans began to fabricate instead of living in the world.

If you live in New York or any other metropolitan city you live in an almost 100% fabricated world minus perhaps some Geraniums on your desk.

Perhaps the pope should study the story of Eden a bit more.
