Germany`s leading political daily Frankfurter Allegemeine Zeitung(FAZ) has attacked the Pope`s climate encyclical as a "distorted depiction of civilization". It says his encyclical is "frightening". The reporter Jan Grossarth sharply criticizes the Pope for making claims "without any evidence". He writes that the "Pope leaves the facts aside" Grossarth says that the Pop`s vision of an exodus back to an agrarian world of more natural pre-industrial living is totally misguided.
He says it gives a distorted picture of civilization. Given that the main contributor to the Encyclical was German alarmist and genocidalist Hans Joachim Schellnhuber it is clear that the document is a product of extreme environmentalist activists masquerading as scientists. Under previous Pope`s such as John Paul 11 or Benedict such a polarising and distorted document would never have seen the light of day. Fossil fuels usage has led to a reduction in hunger, more people being educated, more people living longer with working hours reduced. This has all been achieved by the capitalist free market system which clearly the Pope is against!
Ehrlichian visions of doom from forty years ago never came to pass. due to modern free market industrial progress. Attenborough predictions of necessary population reduction is another example of this wrong thinking. The world has plenty of room for a few billion more people. The present increase is exponential and anyone who knows anything about mathematics knows that all exponential curves flatten out and the rise stops. As for resources there are plenty of resources to last us hundreds of years with huge resources of shale gas and with large new finds of oil and gas off the coasts of Brazil and Greenland..
