Solid scientific evidence tells us that if the world keeps burning fossil fuels at the present rate, by the year 2100 the world’s temperature would rise by 7 degrees Fahrenheit; and with the melting of the polar ice caps, the seas would swamp our coasts, while our grasslands would become deserts.
This week and next, the leaders of over a hundred nations are meeting in Paris to fix and agree on measures that could save this home God gave us.
A half year ago Pope Francis issued “Laudabo Si,” an encyclical dealing with the causes of this impending disaster; and many of the Paris delegates are using it as a road map for the avoiding a major crack-up.
The encyclical is wonderfully complete. However, at 200 pages, it is tough getting through it all. I have tried to reduce its bulk for our weekly study group. While retaining the encyclical’s framework, and keeping key sentences, I have made a 34 page digest of the encyclical.
It takes only minutes for me to run off and mail the 34 page digest to anyone who wants it. Contact me at 1-904-329-2209, or Thomas_sullivan01.comcast.net; or at Thomas Sullivan, 3434 Blanding Ave. Jacksonville, Fl. 32210.
