The Pope knows what’s up. While flying over areas in the Caribbean hit hard by Hurricane Irma, Pope Francis gave climate-change deniers a piece of his holy mind.
“Man is stupid. When you don’t want to see, you don’t see. Man is a stupid and hard-headed being who doesn’t see.” he said, referring to a passage from the Old Testament
The Pope went on to suggest that climate change deniers go consult with scientists, a possible jab at the Trump Administration.
“Those who deny climate change need to go to scientists and ask them,” said the Pope. He went on to say that the scientific community was “clear and precise” in demonstrating that human activities have contributed to the worsening crises and that “each [person] has a moral responsibility, bigger or smaller.” Climate change is a “serious matter over which we cannot make jokes,” he said.
Francis then issued a ominous warning, saying that “history will judge those decisions,” and that if humans fail to curb climate change we “will go down.”
