This week, Anthony Watts and his followers at wattsupwiththat (WUWT) are competing among themselves to see who can come up with the best climate conspiracy. Anthony Watts himself hasn't got a lot of imagination. All he could come up with was accusing the NOAA of fraud and lying. His fans know that the climate conspiracy goes way beyond NOAA. It goes way beyond the whole of the USA (at least for the WUWT-ers who've begun to realise that the USA is not the entire world).
The Catholic Church is in on the climate conspiracy too. And it's all because it was infiltrated by the KGB, who planted Pope Francis as its leader.
You don't believe me? It's true. I read it at WUWT. Here are some of the theories in an article about a translation of the Pope's Encyclical (archived here), which is coming out later this week. (Someone released a draft in Italian, and it's got everyone excited, with all the non-Italian speakers rushing to Google translate.)
Anthony Watts' lapdog, dbstealey, who says the KGB has infiltrated and taken over the Catholic Church, wins today's prize:

I worry that the left has infiltrated my church.
After Pope John Paul II faced down the Soviet Union, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church was targeted by the KGB/FSB. They have a lot of patience. The current Pope is the result. Now they have their puppet in the Vatican.
Here are some of the runners up:

Did anybody see who the Pope talked to last year on this topic? Some of them are Joseph Stiglitz, Clinton’s former econ advisor and a member of socialist international. Jeffery Sachs who you can see giving a speech at the party of european socialists (itself part of socialist international). Sachs’ Earth Institute also lists George Soros as some kind of external advisor. Another person that was at the meeting last years has ties to Rockefeller.
The Pope also said that governments should redistribute wealth to the poor (he’s advocating socialism) and he gave communism a backhanded compliment.
I worry that the left has infiltrated my church.
joelobryan's world starts and stops with money and says the Pope is getting paid

The Vatican, and most especially the Curia, is motivated by one thing… money. At the heart of any bad period in the Catholic Church’s history, it was always somehow rooted in a flow of money, whether it was the wealth flowing back from the New World or priest se abuse cover-ups, it was about maintaining a flow of money to the Vatican.
This Pope has been promised a piece of the $100 Billion Climate AId fund to its various Catholic charities. But of course, The Holy See takes an overhead slice (its piece of the action) of all that Aid money going to its missions and charities in the 3rd World poor countries. He is trying to wrest control of the Vatican bureaucracy from the money controllers, but he needs money to do that. This Climate encyclical is about the money promised by the UNFCCC delegation to those Church charities. For the Pope to get control of the Curia, he needs to control their money flow. With the Climate Aid money he can hold a stronger hand.

I don’t think for a minute that the Pope believes in the science of anthropogenic climate change. It is pretty clear to me now that this particular pope was put there for a reason that has nothing to do with God. This whole thing is his world view and his politics. Why do we need a governing body for a spiritual practice again? has that ever gone over well ever in history?

...The thing that is different this go-round is that many of the ‘scientists’ are supporting the CAGW meme with tongue in cheek. They create false evidence. If people accept the false claims based on false evidence the moral responsibility lies with the falsified not the duped.
Paul Westhaver on how control of CO2 is a socialist plot of the anti-Christian, demonic UN, and how his hopes that the potty peer and the 2012 Climate Misinformer of the Year couldn't persuade Pope Francis to reject 200 years of science:

I am troubled by this encyclical. I was hoping that the efforts of Marc, Lord Chris, et al would have precipitated a roll back. It seems that the language is a wet fish or damp squib so to speak.
The Encyclical in NOT INFALLIBLE TEACHING As such, since I know more about the subject of global warming than its author, I chose to ignore any recommendations extant from this erroneous clap-trap.
I intend to stay fast and rebel and continue to call out the control of CO2 as the socialist plot that it is.
I do not believe the religious leaders in the UN when they say that humanity is causing my planet to warm.
I, therefore do not believe the Vatican, when the quote the anti-Christian UN that asserts that the 1) earth is warming and 2) that is the result of human activity.
Fear not for the Vatican is only contributing to its future incredibility in its bargain with the demonic UN for popularity. It will regret this encyclical.
Therefore we ought to continue to struggle for the truth and what is right.
I have other complaints about the whole wealth transfer tone of the encyclical but it is a bit of a damp squib.

I am going to send a copy of Climate Change the Facts to His Holiness, Pope Francis Apostolic Palace 00120 Vatican City. If all of the readers of this blog were to send a copy, it could make an impact when Pope Francis’ mail box gets jammed by some climate change facts. This in turn could boost the sales of this important book to the top of the sales charts.
