Cardinal Pell denounces, "global warming zealots"

Cardinal Pell of Sydney denounced the "nonsense about climate disasters" and the
"semi-religious" zealotry of those worried about global warming.

The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Sydney Australia wrote to his flock that
“doomsayers” and “zealots” who worry about global warming have subjected their
listeners to “a lot of nonsense about climate disasters”.

Writing on the Sydney Australia website on February
18, Cardinal Pell said that he is “deeply sceptical about man-made catastrophic
global warming, but still open to further evidence.” He noted that global
climate change, such as the Ice Age, had come about with or without human
intervention and that he would be surprised, however, if man-made pollution had
no ill effect at all."
