I love Benedict more and more every time I read stories like this! For the upcoming World Peace Day on January 1st, Benedict prepared a talk that acknowledged global warming as a fact (which I think he is dead wrong on), but stressed that efforts to combat the phenomenon had to be based on solid, scientific evidence and not on dubious ideology. The text of his speech was released early, as delegates from all over the world convened in Bali, Indonesia for UN climate change talks. The author of the article (Simon Caldwell of the UK Daily Mail) called Benedict's comments on global warming a "surpise attack."
You can find several excerpts from Benedict's speech here. I am glad he finally came out and drew attention to the fact that this global warming issue is overhyped and baded on ideologically driven pseudo-science. It is about time somebody stood up to these eco-terrorists.
