Found this linked on FE back in 2007:

The Pope condemns the climate change prophets of doom

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-...-doom.html

To Francis' Laudato si, which buys the global warming scam lock, stock, and barrel!

That's a pretty sensationalistic article and headline that is pretty misleading.  Pope Benedict, rightly or wrongly, focused on the environment the same way.  For example, also from 2007:

Benedict XVI Wrote:Preservation of the environment, promotion of sustainable development and particular attention to climate change are matters of grave concern for the entire human family.
http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xv...nment.html

Also, in the very document where he supposedly condemns prophets of doom (never using that phrase of course), he says "time is short:"

Benedict XVI Wrote:Further international agencies may need to be established in order to confront together the stewardship of this “home” of ours; more important, however, is the need for ever greater conviction about the need for responsible cooperation. The problems looming on the horizon are complex and time is short.
http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xv...peace.html

Of course, what he does is warn against rashly accepting solutions that make the material world or animals more important than man--but then, so does Francis.

The Daily Mail isn't exactly a model of sober impartiality.

The DM is somewhat of a joke in Great Britain.

I'm quite aware of that, but I thought the quotes were interesting.
