Credit where due: Church warns against global warming

Few non-catholics have a higher opinion of Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera than I, and I regard him a generally venomous, misogynistic, gay-bating, child-rapist protecting bigot.

Yet in the most recent Desde la Fe, the publication of his archdiocese of Mexico City, Rivera, in addition to the usual trite admonitions to fight poverty from an ultra-conservative institution, warned against the effects of man-made global warming, noting that the negative fallout of rising temperatures - above all natural disasters - tend to strike particularly the poorest of the poorest far harder than the rest of the population.

Credit where credit's due, cardinal.
