To the editor:
If successful, this pope's encyclical will more than make up for the harm the Catholic Church caused in the past by its intransigent denial of the science proving that the Earth is not the center of the universe. Too bad Galileo isn't here to see the church take the lead this time.
Sarah Mosko, Santa Ana
To the editor: I commend Pope Francis for his stand linking global warming to human activity and to the growing cultural trend of instant gratification. However, I can't help but ask this question: Does his encyclical address population control?
How are we going to get a handle on global warming if we humans keep expanding exponentially?
