    Pope Francis has warned history will judge world leaders who do not act as he blasted climate change sceptics in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.

    The pontiff said the recent storms meant the effects of climate change could be seen "with your own eyes".

    There have been four major Atlantic hurricanes in less than three weeks.

    But US Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt said it was an inappropriate time to discuss what role climate change may have played.

    Mr Pruitt - who has previously said he "would not agree" carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming - told CNN current speculation "on the cause and effect of the storm... is misplaced".

    Instead, Mr Pruitt said the conversation should be focused on the clean up effort.

    Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado - whose city ended up partially underwater as Hurricane Irma swept across Florida - disagreed however, telling the Miami Herald newspaper: "This is the time to talk about climate change. This is the time that the president and the EPA and whoever makes decisions needs to talk about climate change."
    The Pope should keep his mind and mouth on church matters. He probably accepts money from all the climate nuts in exchange for his pronouncements.

    Wonder what caused all the Hurricanes, that have been around forever, prior to man coming along.

    At least the church no longer teaches that the world is flat and the sun orbits around the earth.

    The Popes I remember - Paul VI and forward - spoke very carefully, with obvious thought. Francis shoots from the lip, with odors of Liberation Theology and Yankee-Hate. I'm not a Catholic, but I've always respected Popes as the heads of the Roman Catholic Church; Francis is straining that respect.
    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    So the Pope denies that God is in charge of nature?

    He's also straining mine.

    I don't think he's a scientist and now wondering about his theology. The church leaders were too quick when they went into their pow-wow and erred on the side of political correctness.

    I've wondered all along whether the fact that Francis was from a Third World nation was a significant factor in his election.

    Apparently, which tells me he has a very small god. A god that doesn't have absolute control over everything is no God.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
