Award-winning political cartoonist Mark Fiore noted that since Pope Francis came “out on the side of acknowledging human-caused global warming, Republican presidential contenders are suddenly on the side of ‘science’ not religion.”
Thanks to the pope, it’s becoming more difficult to cast yourself on the side of the angels and the oil companies at the same time. Never mind that human-caused global warming is established science, political contributions from the oil and gas industry are waaaay more important than saving the world. And it’s not just the Republican candidates, a surprising number of regular ol’ Republican people are still buying into the “hoax” line fed to them by big oil and politicians.
