More Bad News for GOP = Pope Francis’s climate encyclical aligned Hispanic-Americans = A climate-science denier cannot win the U.S. presidency.

FACT: Voters REJECT any presidential candidate in 2016 who doesn’t believe that climate change is caused by human activity.

SAD: It seems Manhattan and Miami could sink into the Atlantic Ocean and the GOP would still back a climate-science denier. = Loyalty to fossil-fuel BRIBERY = Koch Bros — who are betting $889 million

Salon.com: “Koch brothers’ humiliating secret: Why even their billions can’t save the GOP from self-destruction.” = 5 Koch-backed candidates poll less than Trump and Carson. = Republican Party’s self-destructive trajectory + Even 80% of young Republicans fear their party’s self-destructing + “Young Voters Call Climate Deniers ‘Ignorant,’ ‘Out of Touch,’ ‘Crazy’”

Rock-solid climate-science deniers = Ted Cruz + Marco Rubio + Ben Carson + Trump = say CLIMATE is “irrelevant” = Like Sound like Senator Jim Inhofe

5 big reasons Hispanic Catholics will sink GOP’s chances, even with Rubio = “The difference between white Catholic and Hispanic views on global warming is like night and day” = Pope Francis’s “comments left many Catholics uneasy, particularly right-wing American Catholics, as it questioned the morals of many of their political values against the tenets of their faith” = Challenging the GOP’s hard-wired loyalty to capitalism and consumerism.

POLL compared the responses of white Catholics to Hispanic Catholics = Very telling statistics on the differences between the Hispanic and white Catholic communities in America.

1. Denialism vs. reality

POLL = White Catholics are twice as likely as Hispanic Catholics to say climate change is NOT happening.” + Hispanic pope & Hispanics believe global warming is real, climate science is real, and the damage is real.

2. Capitalism vs. morality

Hispanic Catholics = Concern over severity of climate change + Value the common good.

White Catholics = Value capitalist ideology + materialism + consumerism + personal profit

3. Protecting the commons

Hispanic Catholics = 3 X more concerned about personal impact of climate change.

White Catholics = Committed to free-market ideology + NO moral responsibility to protect environment for public good.

4. Science vs ideology

Hispanic Catholics = Far more likely to believe in scientific consensus about climate change.

5. Pope’s bully pulpit

Hispanic Catholics = 55% of Church = Believe the Church and Pope Francis = Huge “bully pulpit” in America = 17,483 Catholic parishes + 38,275 priests to carry message to America’s 78 million Catholics

Bottom line: No climate-science denier will win the Hispanic vote for president in 2016.
