Pope BANS Scientist From Summit Because He’s a Climate Warming Skeptic

Looks like the Catholic church is up to its old tricks! Meet the Galileo of Global Warming, Phillippe de Larminat:

Pope Francis was about to take a major step backing the science behind ­human-driven global warming, and Philippe de Larminat was determined to change his mind.

A French doubter who authored a book arguing that solar activity — not greenhouse gases — was driving global warming, de Larminat sought a spot at a climate summit in April sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Nobel laureates would be there. So would U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, U.S. economist Jeffrey Sachs and others calling for dramatic steps to curb carbon emissions.

After securing a high-level meeting at the Vatican, he was told that, space permitting, he could join. He bought a plane ticket from Paris to Rome. But five days before the April 28 summit, de Larminat said, he received an e-mail saying there was no space left. It came after other scientists — as well as the powerful Vatican bureaucrat in charge of the academy — insisted he had no business being there.

“They did not want to hear an off note,” de Larminat said.

The incident highlights how climate-change doubters tried and failed to alter the landmark papal document unveiled last week — one that saw the leader of 1 billion Catholics fuse faith and reason and come to the conclusion that “denial” is wrong.

It marked the latest blow for those seeking to stop the reform-minded train that has become Francis’s papacy. It is one that has reinvigorated liberal Catholics even as it has sowed the seeds of resentment and dissent inside and outside the Vatican’s ancient walls.

Actually the whole Galileo thing is overblown, but STILL I say this sucks!!! Hippy popes are why Western Civilization can’t have nice things. Like capitalism and industry.

    Galileo spent his adult life under house arrest because he told the catholic church what they didn’t want to hear. The Inquisition was much much worse. The catholic church has a history of crushing anyone who does not follow their orders in lock step. Pope Francis has a medieval mindset.

    Why would you need an economist at the summit?

    They need an economist to say that all the carbon taxes/credits and government subsidies will create a wonderful, green economy of sustainable growth and great jobs and rainbows and unicorns….like Spain.
