We've already seen the Pope in a hilarious over the top, Hollywood-style spoof trailer, but now DeSmogBlog has posted an awesome video in which Pope Francis (not the real one, unfortunately) gets up on stage at an open mic night to drop a few rhymes, and then drops his mic.
Here's one of the many gems from the video: "I'm wise to your ridiculous math trick. Is the climate changing? Is the Pope Catholic?"
And wait until you see what he has to say about climate deniers! The Pope's encyclical has been highly anticipated for months with some scientists saying it could have a bigger impact than the Paris climate talks.

Under the guise of responding to consumer complaints that today's energy- and water-efficient dishwashers take too long, the Department of Energy has proposed creating a new class of dishwashers that wouldn't be subject to any water or energy efficiency standards at all. The move would not only undermine three decades of progress for consumers and the environment, it is based on serious distortions of fact regarding today's dishwashers.
