Protesters chant and display signs in front of the Smithsonian Castle during a 2015 anti-fossil fuel rally in Washington. Citing Pope Francis' encyclical "Laudato Si'" on humanity's relationship with the earth and each other, seven Catholic institutions from around the world said they plan to divest from fossil fuel corporations.


Regarding “Rejoin the accord,” (June 16, page 27):

I am appalled at the lack of understanding of science and scientific literacy of the Catholic Church and its membership today, including Pope Francis.

The editorial by Ed Langlois is void of any scientific facts that, when used, clearly contradict all three talking points. This article is politically charged nonsense that is physically meaningless to reality. The Catholic Church and Pope Francis need to stop touting this nonsensical climate encyclical that is grounded in falsified scientific concepts and extreme left wing politics.
