Pope Francis Takes 'Bold and Honest' Stand on Pollution Trading In Encyclical Letter

“The pope has cut through the distracting noise on a complex global issue. He's parted the Wall Street smoke screen and acknowledged that so-called market-based approaches to environmental problems like cap-and-trade aren't solutions at all.”
