Pope Francis: Global Warming Caused COVID-19

You may have been wondering who would be the first prominent moonbat unhinged enough to plunge headfirst into unmitigated insanity by blaming even the Wuhan coronavirus on the imaginary global warming crisis. Obama loosely tied the two while indulging in spiteful ankle-biting. However, even the Moonbat Messiah cares enough about his credibility to refrain from actually blaming COVID-19 on global warming. Not so Pope Francis.

Via Breitbart:

Asked by British journalist Austen Ivereigh whether the COVID-19 crisis is an opportunity for an “ecological conversion,” the pontiff reasserted his belief that humanity has provoked nature by not responding adequately to the climate crisis. …

“I don’t know if it is nature’s revenge, but it is certainly nature’s response,” he added.

Francis also asserts that the wrath of nature is responsible for last winter’s Australian wildfires, for earthquakes, and for a storm that struck northern Italy in 2018. Maybe nature, which he apparently worships rather than God, will lay off if we throw a virgin down a volcano.

The Pontiff has his own plan. To placate nature, we must submerse ourselves in poverty, or as he puts it, “we have to slow down our rate of production and consumption.” Like Francis, nature disapproves of capitalism.

Grouses Francis, “We have come to see ourselves as her [i.e., nature’s] lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will.”

Now where would we get the idea that man has dominion over nature? Maybe Genesis 1:26.

Francis laments,

“Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years.”

It seems the idea is to turn the clock back 200 years, to a time when almost everyone lived in extreme poverty.

“Too many of us act like tyrants with regard to creation,” he declared.

To be called a tyrant by someone who wants to force the world into abject poverty for the sake of an authoritarian political agenda really stings.

Getting back to the Chinese virus, the good news is that if we can believe Pope Francis, all we have to do is jack taxes into the stratosphere, redistribute wealth from those who create it to those who don’t, and smother the world economy under regulations. Then Flu Manchu will go away, since the experts agree that these are the means through which Big Government can control global temperature.

The bad news is that we cannot believe Pope Francis, because he is a moonbat who has been subverting the Catholic Church on behalf of leftist ideology.

Back to good news: if temperatures really have been trending upward lately (you can’t believe official temperature data anymore, now that it is “adjusted” for political reasons), this could reduce the threat from COVID-19:

If coronavirus winds up being seasonal like the flu, it could even turn out that global warming has health benefits.

Since high taxes supposedly make global warming go away, maybe we should lower taxes and warm things up a little for the sake of our health.

On tips from Jack Bauer, Varla, and Rapinhoe.
