The media and the pope

The media now obviously considers the pope an expert on science, so why have most of the media reported only on what he said about climate change and completely ignored that he also wrote that abortion is immoral and that life begins at conception?  The media and politicians obviously couldn't care less about the pope's statements unless they support their agenda.  Then they cherry-pick and use them as talking points.

Since the media now value the pope's opinion on science, maybe they could ask him a series of questions:

How did the process develop whereby humans breathe out CO2, which makes plants thrive, and how did it come about that plants emit oxygen, which allows humans to thrive?  Is the clear innocuous CO2 a pollutant?  Wouldn’t population control be necessary if you really thought that CO2 caused warming? How have temperatures both risen and fallen for lengthy periods of time with rising CO2 if rising CO2 is said to cause warming?

The climate has changed massively through its billions of years naturally, so why wouldn’t the minor changes today be considered part of the natural cycle?

How did the natural resources get inside the Earth?  (I assume that the pope would say that God put them there.)  Were they intended to stay there?  How did humans get the brain that allowed them to discover and develop fossil fuels into so many uses?

Don't sewage and water treatment plants run on fossil fuels?  Isn't it good for the world's poor to have the clean water and environment that results?

Should we go back to burning wood for heat?  Doesn’t that destroy the environment and habitat?

Should animals be used for work and transportation instead of gas-powered machines and automobiles?

Fossil fuels greatly improved the quality and length of life, especially among the poor.  Should we go back?

There are millions of questions about natural processes and things that have been invented relating to fossil fuels, but I thought I would ask a few.

It is truly a shame that the pope allowed his words to be used as talking points by those in government who want to control our lives.
