Does God take care of climate change?

Right-wing Social-Conservative Christian Extremist: If there really is such a thing as global warming, God will take care of it.

God: I sent you floods; I sent you drought; I sent you scientists and now I send you Pope Francis.

What Pope Francis (himself a chemical scientist) wants to tell us regarding climate change:

  1. Climate change is real, and it's getting worse.
  2. Human beings are a major contributor to climate change.
  3. Climate change disproportionately affects the poor.
  4. We can and must make things better.
  5. Individuals can help, but politicians must lead the charge.

This is a Time article from two years ago. It is more timely than ever with the Trump Administration pulling out of the Paris Accord.
