Perhaps Pope Francis read the letter signed by 15,372 scientists worldwide calling climate change 'catastrophic.'

Since the letter was published last November, 4,500 additional scientists have signed it.

What's really interesting is the list of oil companies who are paying attention to what the scientists and Pope Francis are warning humanity about.

Or, perhaps Pope Francis read the letter from concerned scientists at the National Academy of Sciences -- some of whom are Nobel Prize winners.

And, perhaps Pope Francis also read the joint statement on climate change published by the Royal Society and the National Academy of Sciences.

Or, perhaps he didn't read any of this, as it is written in English, a language with which he struggles.

You are, however, doing a wonderful job of documenting your own hysteria. When you get a minute, could you please explain to all the boys and girls and other assorted peasants why George Lakoff is wrong?

I didn't read this article, Richard, but you seem keenly interested in the topic so I wanted to pass it along.
