Antipope Francis' Environmental 'Encyclical.' Saturday 20th June, 2015. Our Lady's Saturday. St. Silverius, PM

Antipope Francis' Environmental 'Encyclical.'

_____________________________

Bro. Michael Dimond

 

First, it’s interesting to note that one of the main individuals chosen by Antipope Francis to present his new “encyclical” on the environment was an atheist named Hans Schellnhuber. Schellnhuber has said that the world is overpopulated by at least 6 billion people.  He’s a promoter of world government and an earth constitution that would hold power over every government and nation.

 

Now I will very quickly review Antipope Francis’ new “encyclical”.  The document is made up of 246 paragraphs and a “prayer”.

 

18: “Although change is part of the working of complex systems, the speed with which human activity has developed contrasts with the naturally slow pace of biological evolution.”

In paragraph number 18, Francis promotes the myth of evolution.  He refers to “biological evolution” as if it’s true.  You can see my new video, Amazing Evidence for God.  It covers the scientific evidence that refutes evolution.

 

63: “Respect must also be shown for the various cultural riches of different peoples, their art and poetry, their interior life and spirituality.  If we are truly concerned to develop an ecology capable of remedying the damage we have done, no branch of the sciences and no form of wisdom can be left out, and that includes religion and the language particular to it.”

In number 63, Antipope Francis speaks of the so-called “riches” and “wisdom” in non-Catholic “spirituality” and “religion”.

 

134: “Although no conclusive proof exists that GM cereals may be harmful to human beings, and in some regions their use has brought about economic growth which has helped to resolve problems…”

In number 134, he promotes dangerous genetically modified foods and praises their so-called economic benefits.

 

170: “Furthermore, since the effects of climate change will be felt for a long time to come, even if stringent measures are taken now, some countries with scarce resources will require assistance in adapting to the effects already being produced, which affect their economies. In this context, there is a need for common and differentiated responsibilities. As the bishops of Bolivia have stated, ‘the countries which have benefited from a high degree of industrialization, at the cost of enormous emissions of greenhouse gases, have a greater responsibility for providing a solution to the problems they have caused'”.

In number 170, Francis promotes the myth of climate change.  He says countries have a common responsibility to take action against “climate change”.

 

173: “Enforceable international agreements are urgently needed, since local authorities are not always capable of effective intervention… Global regulatory norms are needed to impose obligations and prevent unacceptable actions…”

In number 173, Francis says enforceable international agreements to protect the earth are urgently needed.  He also says that global regulatory norms are needed to impose obligations and prevent unacceptable actions.  Radical environmentalism has been used by socialists over the last fifty years to wipe out smaller companies.  Francis’ public support for this radical agenda will almost guarantee that people throughout the world will suffer and lose more money and freedoms as a consequence of unreasonable and unnecessary regulations.

 

179: “… pressure on governments to develop more rigorous regulations, procedures and controls.”

In number 179, he calls for putting pressure on governments to develop more rigorous regulations and controls to protect the environment.

 

211: “… avoiding the use of plastic and paper, reducing water consumption… using public transport or car-pooling…”

In number 211, Francis says that people should avoid the use of plastic and paper and reduce water consumption.  Notice that he doesn’t say people should reduce their use of plastic and paper.  He speaks of avoiding it.  He calls for people to use public transportation or car-pooling.  This is outrageous.  He is promoting a globalist socialist agenda.

 

217: “So what they all need is an ‘ecological conversion’…”

218: “… a healthy relationship with creation is one dimension of overall personal conversion, which entails the recognition of our errors, sins, faults and failures, and leads to heartfelt repentance and desire to change.  The Australian bishops spoke of the importance of such conversion for achieving reconciliation with creation…”

In numbers 217 and 218, Antipope Francis speaks of a personal conversion with creation.  The only kind of conversion is a true spiritual conversion to the Catholic faith.  Francis refers to creation as if it’s divine.  No Catholic would ever speak of an “ecological conversion”.  He’s a heretic, promoting Pantheistic nonsense.  Francis is promoting earth worship and has actually done this many times so far during his reign as antipope.  Here’s just one example:

Francis’ November 20, 2014 address at the offices of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN: “… the Earth never forgives. We must care for our sister the Earth, our Mother Earth, so that she does not respond with destruction.”


Francis says that the Earth never forgives and that we must be careful because the Earth might respond with destruction.

 

Francis appears to be saying that the earth will judge us, in addition to God.  In fact, he seems to indicate that we will have to answer to “creation”.  This is earth worship.  He’s an apostate.

Scientist who rejected ‘Climate Change’ story banned from Vatican summit

June 21, 2015

Washingtonpost.com

… Philippe de Larminat was determined to change his mind.

A French doubter who authored a book arguing that solar activity — not greenhouse gases — was driving global warming, de Larminat sought a spot at a climate summit in April sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Nobel laureates would be there. So would U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, U.S. economist Jeffrey Sachs and others calling for dramatic steps to curb carbon emissions.

After securing a high-level meeting at the Vatican, he was told that, space permitting, he could join. He bought a plane ticket from Paris to Rome. But five days before the April 28 summit, de Larminat said, he received an e-mail saying there was no space left. It came after other scientists — as well as the powerful Vatican bureaucrat in charge of the academy — insisted he had no business being there.

“They did not want to hear an off note,” de Larminat said.

The incident highlights how climate-change doubters tried and failed to alter the landmark papal document unveiled last week…

What Kind Of Cloud Is That? Thursday 4th June, 2015. Corpus Christi

What Kind of Cloud is That?

Wind-blown cumulus clouds (cumulus fractus, cumulus humilis, cumulus congestus)-Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt, N.Z.

_________________________________

 

CLOUD FORMATION AND NAMES Of CLOUDS


    The study of clouds is one of the most fascinating aspects of meteorology, and even a person who has no knowledge of the physics behind cloud formation can derive immense pleasure from an examination of the infinite forms which clouds take.


Cloud forms clearly reflect the physical processes which are taking place in the atmosphere, and are therefore obvious indicators of weather conditions.


Briefly, clouds are caused mainly by the adiabatic cooling of air below its dew point;  this cooling process is most effectively created by upward movements of air, which in turn produce reduction in pressure.   The various types of cloud and their associated precipitation can then be accounted for largely  by the various forms of upward motion, but clouds may be formed to a lesser degree by horizontal movement of air masses, and even rapid reducton of pressure:


1.   Convection


Convection occurs in the atmosphere when it is heated at the earth's surface, either by being warmed in sunshine or when cool air flows into warmer regions.   Large volumes of air rise from the surface layers and penetrate into and mix with the cooler air above, and once this rising air is cooled below its saturation point, the water in it condenses to form clouds.[cumulus type clouds]

 

          Large cumulus congestus cloud build-ups.  Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt, N.Z. [cloud tops around 12,000 ft - 14,000 ft]


2.   Orographic Uplift or Forced Ascent


Air ascending over hills or mountains, cause the air to cool and subsequently the water vapor condenses to form clouds.  On the lee-ward side of a hill or mountain range the air warms up and the cloud droplets evaporate. [altocumulus lenticular type clouds]

 

  Altocumulus/Altostratus cloud (between 12,000ft and 16,000ft), form in Nor'west conditions as warm air descends on the leeward side of the Southern Alps, resulting in spectacular sunsets - New Brighton, Christchurch. N.Z.

 

3.   General Uplift Over Wide Areas or Large Scale Ascent

 

In cyclonic storms and bad-weather systems, like frontal systems ( cold and warm fronts etc.,), the air throughout the troposphere rises slowly over regions hundreds of miles/kilometers across.     This ascent produces layer clouds at several levels [cirrus, cirrocumulus, cirrostratus, altostratus, nimbostratus,  chiefly]

 

 

4.   Passage over a Cold Surface


When air rests on a cooling surface, for example the ground on a clear calm night, dew may be deposited.   However, even in hardly perceptible winds there is enough stirring to spread the cooling upwards over a layer of air, and a fog may form.    Extensive sea fogs are produced in a similar way when tropical air moves over the cool ocean in temperate latitudes.


In string winds the vigorous stirring spreads the cooling upwards over a layer a few hundred meters deep and the greatest chilling may occur near the top of this layer, so that layer cloud [stratus] forms above the ground.


Fragmentary clouds ('scud' or fracto-stratus) are often produced by stirring motions in air near the ground which has been moistened by evaporation of rain falling through it.

 5.    If damp air masses at different temperatures are mixed, the mixture may become saturated and produce cloud.    This is how a cloud forms in the breath on frosty mornings, (or even when the temperature drops below 10 deg C , usually).   

 

In the atmosphere this process is rarely important in the formation of natural clouds, for the temperature differences between neighbouring  air masses are too small unless both air masses have been brought almost to saturation by some other process.   It is responsible, however for the wispy clouds which form in shallow layers of cold air which are strongly heated when flowing across warm water.  These clouds are encountered mainly near ice-sheets and cold polar shores of polar seas, where they are known as 'arctic sea-smoke,' but may also be noticed inland when strong sunshine heats the ground wetted by a recent shower, or when air which overnight has been chilled close to the ground flows down slope and across the warmer waters of lakes and streams.


The process frequently causes artificial cloud formation when exhaust from an aircraft engine(which contains a large proportion of water vapour) mixes into air with a temperature below about -38deg C.   High flying aircraft are therefore often seen making condensation trails.

 6.   Rapid Local  Reduction of Pressure.


A rapid reduction of pressure, with a consequent expansion and chilling, can occur in violent rotating motion, and causes the funnel clouds of tornadoes and water spouts.   Clouds can sometimes be seen in the vortices which trail from aircraft  wings.

The Names of Clouds (Cloud Classification)

 

Initially proposed by a London pharmacist, Luke Howard, in 1803, meteorologists use an international agreed classification for cloud names based on Latin words. 

 

 Cloud Families

He called a sheet cloud stratus (a layer), a heap cloud cumulus (a pile), and a streak cloud cirrus (a hair).   

 

With these was nimbus, the rain cloud, but this word is now only used in the composite names nimbostratus, a raining cloud sheet, and cumulonimbus, a raining heap cloud ( shower cloud).

 

Cloud Species


By further combinations we have cirrostratus, a layer of streak clouds, and stratocumulus, a lumpy or patterned layer cloud.

Similarly, we have cirrocumulus, which are lumpy or billowy clouds amongst streak clouds.

Two recent additions are altostratus, a diffuse sheet cloud in the middle troposphere, and, altocumulus, a dappled or billowy cloud at similar levels.

 

Cloud Varieties

Some varieties of these clouds species are recognized, of which the most important are lenticularis, clouds in oval or lens shapes, and castellanus, miniature cumulus clouds in the middle troposphere.

Small fragmentary clouds amongst cumulus are called cumulus fractus, and similar, very low clouds which occur in rain and on the fringes of storms ('scud' clouds) are called stratus fractus.

________________________________

 

Clouds are classified into three families: high clouds, middle clouds, and low clouds.

 

 High Clouds are composed almost entirely of tiny ice crystals, with their bases averaging above 20,00ft above the earth, with their upper level up to 40,000 ft.    There are three types of high cloud:

 

Cirrus clouds ( Cu ) usually form at 25,000 ft and higher; they are thin wispy and detached with delicate and fibrous structure, and composed entirely of ice crystals, where temperatures are well below freezing point, (around - 40 deg C)    They sometimes indicate a change in the weather several days ahead.    These clouds are frequently blown about into feathery strands called "mares' trails."

 

           Cirrus spissatus (betwen 20,000 ft - 25,000 ft)


             Cirrus spissatus with cirrocumulus floccus



Cirrus uncinus in the form of "mare's tails" around 25,000 ft




Dense cirrus radiatus (20,000 ft-25,000 ft )-  Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt, N.Z.



Cirrocumulus clouds (Cc) generally form at 20,000 to 25,000 ft., and are rarely seen.   They are thin, patchy clouds often forming wavelike patterns, and are referred to as "mackerel sky,"  and too thin to show shadows. The presence of cirrocumulus clouds heralds approaching rain, although usually not wet for very long, but also not fine for very long, either!

 



Cirrocumulus with fine ripples like wind blown sand visible and referred to as a "mackerel sky"

 

Cirrostratus (Cs) clouds form at the same altitude as cirrocumulus.   They are thin sheets which can cover the whole sky, and are composed of ice crystals, and give a milky appearance to the sky.   Because they are made up of ice crystal;s they give rise to halos around the sun and moon, which forecast approaching rain (75% of the time).

_________________________________________________

Middle Clouds are basically stratus or cumulus type clouds with their bases are around 7000ft and mean upper level around 20,000 ft.   They are composed mostly of water vapour.

 

There are two types of middle cloud:


Altocumulus (Ac) clouds are layers, or patches of cloud composed of thin flakes or flattened globular masses which are arranged in lines or waves. Shadows may or not be noticeable.   Through altocumulus clouds, the sun may produce a corona or disk, generally pale blue or yellow inside, and reddish on the outside.  When they appear in several layers it is usually not a good weather sign.



Altostratus (As) clouds are usually in a uniform sheet, more or less grey in color, and resembles thick cirrostratus and often merges with it.   The sun is barely visible through altostratus cloud, and it may proceed  nimbostratus rain cloud in certain conditions.


        Altostratus (around 17,000ft) with patches of altocumulus create a colorful sunset


 




Low Clouds have bases that range in height from near sea level to around 6,500 ft.   There are five main types:

 

Stratus (St) clouds are a low quite uniform sheet which resembles fog, but which is above ground level.   Only fine drizzle can fall from stratus clouds, because there is little or no vertical movement in them.


Low level stratus on hills barely 100 ft above observer - Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt, N.Z.

 


           Low stratus clouds (around 1200 ft) forming shortly after sunrise show irisation or iridescence (mainly pale green and pink along edges)




     Early morning stratus fractus with iridescence around edges


Stratocumulus(Sc) clouds are irregular masses of clouds spread out in a regular rolling or puffy layer.  Grey with dark shading they do not produce rain but can merge into nimbostratus which do.

 

          Stratocumulus and Cumulus at different levels - [Stratocumulus perlucidus around 6000 ft and Cumulus humilis around 1500-2000  ft.  - Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt, N.Z.]

 

      Extensive cloud cover of stratocumulus perlucidus around 6000 ft

 

 

          Stratocumulus radiatus in bands - cloud base about 6000 ft invades the sky

 Cumulus congestus (2000ft) and Stratocumulus cumulogenitus ( 6000 ft) - formed by spreading out of cumulus cloud tops as they reach stable layer of air )

 



  Cumulus and stratocumulus clouds at different levels (as described above)

 

 

     Stratocumulus lenticularis (6500 ft) and cumulus humilis (3000 ft)

    Shallow layer of stratocumulus opacus partially obscures Mt. Ruapehu

Nimbostratus (Ns) clouds are dense rainy layer of cloud, dark grey in color and with a uniform texture.  They are the true rain clouds.   They are often accompanied by low scud clouds ( fractostratus ) when the wind is strong.

 



Cumulus (Cu) clouds are puffy, cauliflower-like with constantly changing shapes.    Over land cumulus usually form by day in rising warm air, and disappear at night.   They mean fair weather, unless they pile up into cumulonimbus clouds.

 

        Cumulus mediocris are short-lived clouds, ceaselessly forming, growing, and dissolving, soon to be  replaced by others as air between them is kept rather dry by slow sinking motion.

Cumulonimbus (Cb) clouds are the familiar thunderheads, with great vertical development whose tops have a fibrous nature and often spread out in the form of an anvil.   They are frequently accompanied by thunder and hail.  These clouds can also produce tornadoes.

 Sky Color, Sunsets and Weather Lore in Forecasting

The color of the sky, type of sunsets, can be useful tools in forecasting future weather conditions.


A dark blue sky with sharply outlined clouds, can often be a forerunner of stormy weather, whereas a soft, light blue means settled weather.

Threatening cumulonimbus clouds sharply outlined in a dark blue sky

 

In showery weather, the presence of green between clouds indicates a continuation of showery weather interspersed with sunny intervals.

 

The  presence of green may also be observed in approaching cumulonimbus clouds associated with thunderstorms, and can indicate potential for large hail stones.

 

Yellow is one of the worst colors, especially at sunset, and is a forerunner of storm, gales and rain, not necessarily on the next day, but sometimes 36 hours ahead.

 

 Yellow sky at sunset denotes rain and gales on the way

Yellow sky forecasts rain and gales on the way within 24 hours

 

 

Red can be a very misleading color, as it is associated with both fine and foul weather.

A red sky over the western sky at sunset, evenly diffused, means a fine tomorrow, and the same holds good if the red is in long narrow streaks drawn across the setting sun, and as the proverb or the saying goes:  

 

         Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning;

                  Red sky at night, shepherd's delight

 

 

     Red sky denotes fine sunset

 

    Even red sunset glow indicates fine weather

    Clear red hue of a fine sunset sky

 

 

A fine weather sunset in western sky with red glow along the horizon

 

 

But if the red is reflected on lower ragged clouds, especially if the glow spreads right across the sky towards the east, then very stormy weather may be expected.

 
 Red sky extends too far over the sky to promise fine weather, and was followed by gales overnight and in the morning with rain and showers by 10am the next day right through until 3pm that afternoon.




Red sky indicative of unsettled stormy weather the next day, with gales  setting in during the night and rain and showers the next day


Red is also a bad sign in the eastern sky at dawn.
