Quotes from the news wire:
People are increasingly connecting the dots when they see these weather events happening across the United States, it's about the pattern -- if an extreme event happens once or twice, it's just a coincidence, but three, five, 12, 22 times, seeing record-setting events, seeing 1,000-year event after 1,000-year event happen frequently, people begin to see that larger pattern, that Nature Climate Change is actually affecting the weather today. And that's a new concept for many Americans.
You get this downward spiral of nobody discussing it, the fact that we don't hear about it all that often -- including from the news media -- and because we don't talk about it with our friends and our families and our social networks -- then therefore it's not that important, or can't be that important, because if it was we'd all be talking about it.
Pope Francis has become the most admired man in America and when he speaks, he speaks with a loud megaphone, one that reaches all people, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, climate change is not just a political issue, it’s a moral and religious issue and he will ask people, ‘What does my religious faith have to tell me and guide me about climate change?’ And it turns out that he’s speaking to a very willing audience within the Catholic community.
We can see this division play out right now between moderate, liberal, and conservative Catholics, what’s going to happen when the Pope comes out with his statement about global warming and how it’s a moral and religious duty to address it when conservative presidential and congressional candidates (in the 2016 election) are appeasing their base?
