Letter to the editor: Atheist wants a one-world government

Citizen-Action.com reports that on June 18, the Vatican put out an encyclical in which Pope Francis urged the world to take measures to reduce anthropogenic (man-caused) climate change.  One of the lead advisors for the encyclical is prominent German atheist and one-world government activist Hans Joachim Schellnhuber.

Schellnhuber recently wrote in The Guardian (United Kingdom) that the use of fossil fuels for energy is “a lifestyle of mass destruction” and accused Westerners of “eco-crimes” against the world at large.

He also proposed and advocates for something called a two-degree rule, which states that governments cannot allow the temperature to vary more than two degrees from the average at the start of the Industrial Revolution [which began in 1760].

These extreme climate views tie in nicely with Schellnhuber’s unapologetic Malthusian view of the world which is rooted in the late-18th century writings of Thomas Robert Malthus, an English economist who predicted doom and catastrophe for the world based on overpopulation.  Malthus believed the resources of the Earth were finite, and thus population must be limited.  He viewed disease and birth control as positive checks on overpopulation.

In 2009, Schellnhuber told the Copenhagen Climate Conference that the ideal population for the Earth was less than one billion people – in other words, six billion less than the population at the time of his speech.  Global warming, according to Schellnhuber, is “a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something – namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below one billion people.”

Schellnhuber calls for an “Earth Constitution that would transcend the U.N. Charter” and direct election of a one-world government.  He has also talked openly of using science to direct human behavior in acceptable directions.

Why would Pope Francis even listen to an atheist with such radical “anti-mankind” views?  And of greater concern, why would Pope Francis choose this man as a lead advisor and member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences?

Could this be the work of the false prophet as described in Revelation 13:11-18?
