Challenging climate-change enthusiasm

Chicago-based Heartland Institute has a position on the issue.

The Heartland Institute has participated in the global debate over climate policy since 1993, when it published an influential book titled Eco-Sanity: A Common-Sense Guide to Environmentalism.

Our position has always been that if human emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases pose a threat to the natural world and human health, then actions to avoid the threat would be necessary.

But if the best-available research shows there is little danger or that there is nothing we can do to prevent climate change, then we should oppose legislation adopted in the name of “stopping” global warming.

So, the eminent Christian leader, Pope Francis, among other opinion-makers and -leaders, certainly has a challenge. Or one would think.
