This post has been provided for our discussion on the new Encyclical on climate and related matters. Prior publicity suggests a number of questions which, amongst others, we might like to consider:
Is it the Pope’s job to write authoritatively on such secular matters?
Is Papal infallibility applicable here?
Do we accept the scientific basis on which the Pope is relying?
What will be (should be?) the reaction of institutions and countries?
What is our own reaction?
(We have discussed a number of pertinent issues on Guiding the Government. But feel free to repeat any opinions you have already expressed as part of this new discussion.
