The Pope's encyclical on climate change

As you are probably aware, Pope Francis has released an encyclical on climate change. (Here is a link to that document.)

Here is extensive coverage from CNN, including some video reports on papal infallibility, and on climate change.

Wired and Christianity Today have commentary on the pope's action. So does the BioLogos forum, an organization of Christian scientists and others. These comments are largely favorable.

Some commentators associated with Fox News were not so positive, by a long shot. See here and here, for samples. Some prominent Republicans, including some Catholics, also did not support the Pope on this matter.

Thanks for reading!

I tend to agree that we are all interconnected. God instructed us to be stewards of His creation, not to destroy it. Man's greed is shown in strip mining, in fracking, and in tearing down lovely hillsides to build shopping malls which are obsolete in a few years. All the stores gone to a new shopping mile a few miles further out of the city.

I agree. (See my post, in the list to the right, on Environmental Stewardship in the Bible.)

I meant to say "a new shopping mall" but I guess "shopping mile" is accurate, too. :-/

Either one works.
