Red Francis: World Is “Near Suicide” on Climate Change – West Is to Blame for African Poverty
Socialist Pope Francis announced today that the world is “near suicide” if no climate change deal is reached this week in Paris.
The freewheeling Argentinian also blamed the West for African poverty.
75 million Africans were paid bribes in the last year. – which had nothing to do with the West.
Could this pope be more offensive and dense?
The U.N. climate conference in Paris is most likely humanity’s last chance to thwart global environmental disaster, Pope Francis said on Monday, warning the world was “at the limits of suicide”.
The pope, who wrote a major document on the environment last June, made the comment in an hour-long news conference aboard the plane returning him to Rome at the end of a six-day trip to Africa.
The freewheeling conversations have become a trademark of his papacy and the few times he takes direct questions from journalists.
Francis, who visited Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic, also said the continent was “a martyr of exploitation” by wealthy countries who lust after its natural resources and try to impose Western values instead of concentrating on development.
The pope was asked if the U.N. climate summit in Paris would mark a turnaround in the fight against global warming.
“I am not sure, but I can say to you ‘now or never’,” he said. “Every year the problems are getting worse. We are at the limits. If I may use a strong word I would say that we are at the limits of suicide.”
He spoke of retreating glaciers in Greenland and low-lying countries at risk from rising sea levels.
“I am sure that the (Paris delegates) have goodwill to do something. I hope it turns out this way and I am praying that it will,” he said.
Obama sent $7 billion of taxpayer dollars to Africa last year.
According to this far left pope, that was not enough.
