Book description

The encyclical letter of Pope Francis, Laudato Si’, (“Care for our common home”) was influenced by atheists, communists and green activists. The result is that the Pope advocates burdening the Developing World with inefficient unreliable high-cost renewable energy and agriculture, thereby keeping the poor in eternal poverty. Only when Developing-World children can do homework at night using cheap coal-fired electricity can they escape from poverty the author contends.

Looking purely at the science rather than the theology, Ian Plimer shows the failure of the Pope in his understanding of the real issues causing poverty, especially in the Developing World.
