Pope Francis' Must-See Hilarious Encyclical Rap

Climate

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. A draft of the document was even leaked early by an Italian magazine on Monday, but now the official papal document has been released today.

Check out this hilarious rap:

Respecting scientists has never been a priority for the Trump Administration. Now, a new investigation from The Guardian revealed that Department of the Interior political appointees sought to play up carbon emissions from California's wildfires while hiding emissions from fossil fuels as a way to encourage more logging in the national forests controlled by the Interior department.

Killer hurricanes, devastating wildfires, melting glaciers, and sunny-day flooding in more and more coastal areas around the world have birthed a fatalistic view cleverly dubbed by Mary Annaïse Heglar of the Natural Resources Defense Council as "de-nihilism." One manifestation: An increasing number of people appear to have grown doubtful about the possibility of staving-off climate disaster. However, a new interactive tool from a climate think tank and MIT Sloan shows that humanity could still meet the goals of the Paris agreement and limit global warming.
