Other Pontifical Acts

Vatican City, 17 June 2015 (VIS) – The Holy Father has appointed Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, professor of theoretical physics at the University of Potsdam and director of the Institute for Climate Impact in Potsdam, Federal Republic of Germany, as ordinary member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

This is beyond incredible !!!   The only way this man can achieve his goal of only one billion people on earth is through birth control, sterilization, abortion and euthanasia. I cannot imagine why Pope Francis would appoint such a man to be a member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.  Whenever he speaks to the media the liberal press will be eager to report that his views, which I have described, represent the thinking of the Pope and, hence, of the Church.  The Pope has already sent shock waves through the Church with “Rabbitgate” when he said to a woman that Catholics must not “breed like rabbits” so now even though the Vatican has denied that the Pope meant it like it sounds, todays appointment will surely convince people that he meant what he said.  God help us !!! – – – – – – Abyssum



Vatican Speaker on Climate Thinks There are 6 Billion Too Many of Us

 [commentary added in red by Abyssum]

One of the speakers slated for the Vatican rollout of the long-awaited Papal document on climate change once said the earth is overpopulated by at least 6 billion people.

The teaching document, called an encyclical, is scheduled for release on June 18 at Vatican City. Perhaps with the exception of the 1968 encyclical on contraception, no Vatican document has been greeted with such anticipation.

The political left is hoping for a document that ties belief in global warming to a religious obligation. Climate skeptics have already started criticizing the document.

The choice of Professor John Schnellnhuber, founding director of the Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, as one of three presenters may be giving the left added hope and giving giving skeptics severe heartburn. He has been described as one of the more aggressive scientists on the question of man-made global warming.

[Shades of Robert Thomas Malthus, the 18th Century writer who started this whole business of “the sky is falling.”  His writings are now commonly grouped under the heading: The Malthusian Catastrophe.  He has had disciples in every generation.  In the later part of the 20th Century Paul Erlich here in the United States was a leading advocate of population control in order to head off disaster.  He said then that the world could not feed more than one billion people.  Advances in agricultural science have proven such predictions wrong. These prophets of doom have made it easy for the evil promoters of genocide to justify their killing of millions of people. – Abyssum]

In a talk given to what’s described as the “failed” 2009 Copenhagen climate conference, reported in the New York Times, Schnellnhuber, who has advised German President Angela Merkel and is a visiting professor at Oxford, said of global warming: “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something –- namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people.”

Schnellnhuber is also author of what’s called the “two-degree target” that says governments must not allow the temperature to rise more than 2 degrees higher than at the start of the industrial revolution. Any higher, the theory holds, and much life on earth would either perish or be gravely harmed.

[The reality is that the world will eventually come to an end and if prophecies are to be believed it will come to a fiery end.  The earth has already seen a preview of its end in the collision of the earth with an asteroid 65,000,000 years ago that killed off almost all forms of life on the planet except the smallest organisms in the ocean. – Abyssum]

To deal with climate issues, he has also called for an “Earth Constitution that would transcend the UN Charter” along with the creation of a “Global Council…elected by all the people on Earth” and a “Planetary Court..a transnational legal body open to appeals from everybody, especially with respect to violations of the Earth Constitution.”

[God help us!  We already have had years of progressives, such as Barack Hussein Obama, pushing for the the United Nations to take over the sovereignty of all the nations of the world, and now this.  There is not doubt that the industrial pollution of the world is causing some global warming, especially the industrial pollution of China and India, but that pollution is nothing compared to pollution caused by a volcanic irruption, over which no governmental structure has control. – Abyssum]

[I had hoped that the papal encyclical that will be released on June 18 would not expose the papacy of Pope Francis and the Church to more ridicule than has already been directed at statements coming out of the Vatican, but the appointment of Professor Schnellnhuber to be one of the several “experts” that will explain the encyclical on the 18th in the Vatican does not sound very encouraging.  Let us brace ourselves for the worse and pray for the best. – Abyssum]
