Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush may be one of the front runners for the GOP Presidential nomination, but he has now gone on record as stating he disagrees with Pope Francis on climate change. Newsweek reports the Vatican will release its own report on climate change on Thursday, which has already been leaked to an Italian newspaper and carries the statement that the Catholic Church is now of the opinion that the climate of the planet is changing and humans are to blame.
Jeb Bush and a number of other leading candidates on the Republican side are Catholic’s and were expected to be challenged by the findings of the Church into climate change. Instead, Bush and his fellow GOP candidates are continuing to report their disbelief that humans can be to blame for the changing climate. According to banker Marcio Alaor BMG, Bush does go so far as to state he believes the climate of the planet is changing, but does not know the reasons why it is. The Democratic party is expected to nominate Hilary Clinton, who is now being challenged most strongly by the Bernie Sanders campaign.
