PopeWatch: Pope Ocasio

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.

Mark Twain


Frequently PopeWatch has a problem distinguishing the Pope from Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:


The Holy Father sounded a dire warning about the current state of affairs. “The signs today are not good”, he said, pointing to declining investment in clean energy and a rise in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Citing leading climatologists and experts, Pope Francis said, “Their message was clear and insistent.  We need to act decisively to put an end to all emissions of greenhouse gases by mid-century at the very latest, and to do even more than that”.

Specifically, Pope Francis called on ministers to commit to several specific goals:

– to value what is important, not what is superfluous;

– to correct our national accounts and our business accounts, so as to stop engaging in activities that are destroying our planet;

– to put an end to global dependency on fossil fuels;

– to open a new chapter of clean and safe energy, that utilizes, for example, renewable resources such as wind, sun and water;

 – above all, to act prudently and responsibly in our economies to actually meet human needs, promote human dignity, help the poor and be set free of the idolatry of money that creates so much suffering.

Go here to read the rest.  The same apocalyptic urgency, the same raw ignorance, the same indifference to the impact on economies and the living standards of huge populations, the demanding of the impossible immediately.  Woe to us when our Pope sounds like one of the more witless members of our Congress.


More to explorer


  1. With the current technology we have, it is absolutely impossible to rely on sun and wind power to generate enough electricity for the global population. We need coal. Besides, don’t these climate change fear-mongerers want us driving electric cars within the next decade. More pressure on energy.

    Photosynthesis- is the process by which plants and other things make food. It is a chemical process that uses sunlight to turn carbon dioxide into sugars that the cell can use as energy.
    Trees release oxygen when they use energy from sunlight to make glucose from carbon dioxide and water. So to put it plainly, trees give us oxygen. We give trees carbon dioxide. This is basic grade three science. Plant more trees.

  2. Frequently PopeWatch has a problem distinguishing the Pope from Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

    One of them can improve the quality of life in this world by (1) leaving public life and landing a normal job; and (2) marrying Riley and starting a family.

    The other one can improve the quality of life by abdicating, shutting himself up in a monastery; devoting himself to prayer, penance, and whatever labor the prior assigns him; and never again uttering another word.

  3. Ezabelle-
    American style intense farming practices also create a lot of clean air. (For some reason, corn and hay and alfalfa and grain and and and are generally not considered.)

    There’s also algae farming; I know there’s work on using algae blooms in feed lot poop-pits to quickly and easily turn it into high concentrate fertilizer.

  4. Chasing after the latest worldly fad. That’ll get ’em back in the pews, eyes raised to Heaven!

  5. I love that Twain quote. The real danger is voters are even more stupider. Thank 100 years of leftist control over education.

    29 May 2019: IBD: Stunning statistical fraud is behind global warming hysteria, er, settled science. “But the overall measured temperature shows no clear trend over the last century, at least not one that suggests runaway warming.”

    Fake Puerto Rican and fake pope.

  6. George Carlin has some great quotes on stupid:

    “Think about how stupid the average person is, and then realize that half of ’em are stupider than that.”
    “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”

    “If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to have selfish, ignorant leaders.”
    “In America, anyone can become president. That’s the problem.”

    “Here’s all you need to know about men and women. Women are crazy. Men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.”

  7. So many opinions by so many people who haven’t spent a single day of their lives in a power house or in the engine room of a nuclear submarine. One more time – read this:


    If you believe in global warming nonsense and you don’t support nuclear, thrn you’re an imbecile. Read the text at the link above. Study it. Click on the sub-links. Study the information they provide.

    I explained this to an idiot Protestant preacher boy mouthing off about global warming on FB. He shut his mouth afterwards.

    Sorry for being a divisive, intolerant, excluding SOB nuke sub sailor. But I got 40+ years of training and experience in this, starting at 19 yrs old when I brought my 1st reactor to criticality. It ain’t pride to tell the truth.

  8. Peter 12:3 12-13
    “At that time the heavens will be destroyed by fire. And the sun and moon and stars will melt away with much heat. 13 We are looking for what God has promised, which are new heavens and a new earth.”

    Anyone who has faith in God’s words should read the above. I don’t know how many times I have to tell the faithful who believe we are destroying the planet that it is on God’s timetable and by His hand that the Earth, stars, moon and sun will be destroyed. Are they saying WE will not only destroy the planet because WE cause global warming but the sun, moon and stars also?? The Pope should know better. I do and I’ve only got a HS diploma.

  9. Do not feel badly, Ordinary Catholic. I too have only a HS diploma (plus Naval nuclear training). I eventually became a training instructor for both pressurized & boiling water reactors where I would train newly hired personnel straight from liberal progressive Academia. I thank the Lord Jesus Christ that I got my education cleaning the bilge underneath the feedwater regulating valves in engine room forward on a nuclear submarine in the North Atlantic. So never be ashamed of lacking the pedigree of a piece of sheepskin that serves only to document that you have been sufficiently indoctrinated by your political betters.

  10. George Carlin has some great quotes on stupid:

    Not one of them is great. They’re the perspective an elderly class cut-up who fancies himself a person of superior insight. Carlin was a talented entertainer. He managed to avoid the divorce courts. There is little else in his life which indicates he was a person of much intelligence.

  11. Foxfier- what the left are proposing in terms of “caring for our environment” is not viable, short of current capabilities and catastrophic to the local and global economy. We recently dodged a bullet with our federal elections. The platform of the left: radical climate reforms at the expense of jobs and services. The voters wouldn’t have a bar of this nonsense. The climate ideology on carbon emissions is over emphasised with little evidence to justify what they are proposing. Besides, if China is rogue, then no reductions of carbon emissions anywhere will make a difference. Most Catholics are all for looking after Gods creation and using our resources responsibly. But what the left are proposing is dangerous.

  12. LCQ- yes agree. They don’t want to touch nuclear energy. They think the technology is at the same level as it was during the Chernobyl days. We have come a long way with Nuclear energy. Mention “nuclear” to the left and they loose the plot.

  13. More evidence that the Catholic Church no longer has a Pope in charge of religion. Rather we have a Democrat politician promoting Communist nonsense.
