Pope Urges Top Oil Executives to Convert to Clean Fuel
The Wanderer ^ | 6/9/18

(VATICAN NEWS) Pope Francis on Saturday addressed participants at a Vatican conference dedicated to the need for a transition to clean energy. Addressing some 40 participants in a Vatican conference dedicated to “Energy Transition and Care for our Common Home”, Pope Francis said “civiliazation requires energy but energy use must not destroy civilization”.

The two-day conference that wrapped up on Saturday, was promoted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in collaboration with Notre Dame University.

It saw the participation of senior executives of leading oil and gas companies including ExxonMobil, Eni, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Equinor and Pemex.

In his speech, the Pope told them that climate change was a challenge of “epochal proportions” and said that the world needs to come up with an energy mix that combats pollution, eliminates poverty and promotes social justice.

He said that modern society with its “massive movement of information, persons and things requires an immense supply of energy,” and still, he pointed out, as many as one billion people lack electricity.

I really don’t think this old goat should be sticking his neck into imaginary political issues. He has enough problems in his own arena.

The oil companies don’t use the oil - it is their customers.

Maybe the Pope should be addressing drivers and people who heat their houses?

Whenever you burn any organic material or hydrocarbon you get CO2 and water vapor as an end product. This is chemistry 101 and there is no way around it.

Shouldn’t discussion of popie be confined to the Catholic Caucus threads, for devout freepers to do what they can to defend the beloved leader of their religion?

Next time I need religious help I guess I should go see an oil executive like the pope thinks we should go see him for energy advice.

He needs to worry about the log in his own eye first before going after anything in someone else’s.

He’s got enough problems on his hands that are his responsibility to deal with without sticking his nose in matters that are none of his concern.

The Pope is more concerned with life on earth now and temporary than the soon judgement at the 2nd coming and the ETERNAL life that follows. He’s no different than the Godless LEFT.

He’s full of advice and little gospel. Like most of Christianity today. 8 were saved in Noah’s day. Probably a good example of the % of those that will be saved these days upon the return of Christ. Because they had no love for truth.

And the top executives beg the Pope to pass a freshman science class.

I know more than a few Catholics who can’t stand Pope Frank. His damage is being compared to the house of Medici.

The Pope should be more worried about, oh, I don’t know, spreading the Gospel.
