If you needed any evidence this climate change scam is nothing more than a sad political joke, this may be be the low point in the “discussion” of the topic.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is heading to a conference on climate change at the Vatican, where he’s scheduled to speak and attend an audience with Pope Francis.
De Blasio leaves New York Monday night to join 65 other mayors and elected officials from around the world at the gathering. It’s titled “Modern Slavery and Climate Change: The Commitment of the Cities.”
De Blasio will give a speech Tuesday.
Pope Francis issued a landmark encyclical this year calling for action on climate change.
So a failed mayor with zero scientific background of any kind is there to speak about what, exactly? What could he possibly have to offer other than the usual fear-mongering? Has Pope Francis gone this far over the edge with this idiocy? It’s one thing if de Blasio had a track record of some kind, but how is anyone supposed to take this buffoon seriously? What, was “Science Guy” Bill Nye not available?
Meanwhile, back home:
Housing advocates want the Vatican to freeze out Mayor de Blasio at a climate change conference in Rome Tuesday.
They say Hizzoner’s invitation to deliver the keynote address should be pulled because of his environmental record at home.
De Blasio is set to fly to Italy Monday night and give a speech, titled “Modern Slavery and Climate Change,” at the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences Tuesday.
But Metro Industrial Areas Foundation says his appearance there will be an “embarrassment” to Pope Francis.
Metro IAF has sued the New York City Housing Authority for failing to eradicate mold in NYCHA apartments, and recently blamed de Blasio for the authority’s inaction on the problem.
Late last week, Metro IAF Co-Director Michael Gecan wrote to the Rev. Federico Lombardi, a Vatican spokesman, asking that the de Blasio invitation be withdrawn because the mayor “has neglected environmental threats of mold and mildew in the city’s public housing system.”
“You risk great embarrassment to the Pope and the Vatican by making the mayor your keynote speaker,” he wrote.
Sadly, the Pope is beyond embarrassment at this point.
