Laudato Si Makes Waves Throughout Society
Sustainable investors and climate deniers alike weigh in with responses and reactions to Pope Francis's landmark encyclical on climate change. Second in a two-part series.
Even before the official publication of Laudat
o Si, the encyclical on climate change by Pope Francis, climate deniers were maintaining that a
religious leader should confine himself to religious matters. At a recent conference for climate
deniers, Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma remarked, “The pope ought to stay with his job, and we’ll stay
with ours.” Also, out of the ever-growing crowd of undistinguished Republican candidates for
President, former Senator Rick Santorum opined, “I think there are more pressing problems
confronting the earth than climate change.”
