The Vatican suggested Thursday a Biden presidency might inject new life into the stagnant Paris Climate Accord after President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the deal in 2017.
The Vatican COVID-19 Commission announced Thursday that it is organizing a webinar next week in preparation for a December 12 global climate summit to be co-hosted by the United Nations and the UK to mark the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement.

In its preparatory document, the Vatican team lamented the lack of initiative and commitment around the Paris climate goals, something it said needs to gain renewed momentum ahead of the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP 26) to be held in Glasgow in November 2021.
“More than 195 Paris Agreement signatories have promised to update their 2015 commitments before the end of 2020, but no major emitting countries have formally submitted new commitments to the UNFCCC,” the text states. “The result of US elections can play a key role in the next weeks’ developments.”
When President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the 2015 Paris accord, he said he did so to fulfil his “solemn duty to protect America and its citizens.”
“The Paris Climate Accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries,” Mr. Trump declared, “leaving American workers — who I love — and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories, and vastly diminished economic production.”
“As someone who cares deeply about the environment,” Trump said, “I cannot in good conscience support a deal that punishes the United States… while imposing no meaningful obligations on the world’s leading polluters.”
“This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States,” he said, noting that large polluters like China and India are not subject to the same requirements imposed on the United States.
In Thursday’s text, the Vatican states that governments “need an immediate response to shifting the global economy from fossil fuels” in order to avoid “catastrophic effects, including destabilizing heat waves, severe floods, and a sharp rise in sea level.”
“Particularly, industrialized countries must act quickly to meet their net-zero targets before 2050 to achieve the Paris targets,” the document declares. “Adequate and consistent financial support must be delivered to vulnerable countries to adapt to the climate-related devastation that they are already experiencing.”
At the upcoming climate summit, “national governments will be requested to present more ambitious, high-quality climate plans involving government leaders, the private sector, and civil society,” the Vatican text states. “More than ever, the ethical imperative of climate inaction will be accentuated. This summit should remind us of the urgent need to take concrete action to recognize our reliance on a healthy planet and to work together for transformative change.”
HD Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?
Terry James, in his article “Pope And The “Mother Earth” Deception,” wrote that this worship of the climate we are witnessing today is a satanic deception of which the Pope is at the forefront:
As we as a generation of inhabitants of Planet Earth pierce ever more deeply into the end of the age, the picture of the emerging Tribulation world order comes into view. Presently that view is in the process of tightening into high-definition focus.
Right on schedule, a global religious leader has emerged to the forefront of prophetic stage-setting. He has been instrumental in igniting the fever for the global warming (now “climate change”)fanaticism we see developing. Many, even among top Catholic clergy, have expressed they believe this man could be the final pope. A number among those believe him to possibly be the false prophet—the second beast—of Revelation chapter 13.
I don’t go that far. But certainly this man who came to papal power in such strange fashion exhibits characteristics of one who denies truth and leads the flock astray. Pope Francis has, for example, stated that even atheists will one day be in Heaven. He has said such things as all religions should pray to their gods for relief from COVID-19. He has said there are other ways to Heaven than through Jesus Christ. He has called for world governmental authority over all people. I have all these declarations documented in my files. These are not false accusations.
This pope has made no secret of his disdain for the current president and his administration. Trump’s anti-globalist, “Make America Great Again,”determination has driven the one-worlders into frenzy. Pope Francis is proving to be their champion, as demonstrated by the following news excerpt.
Pope Francis asked Christians to care about creation, saying that the abuse of ecosystems is a “grave sin” while lamenting the negative impacts of global warming and targeting President Trump “everyone abusing the ecosystem should be held accountable.”
We must look after our common home, “to the earth and to every creature,” the pope said during a speech in the Vatican’s San Damaso, “all forms of life are interconnected, and our health depends on that of the ecosystems that God created and entrusted to us to care for.”
“Abusing them, on the other hand, is a grave sin that damages us, and harms us, and makes us sick,” he explained.
“Everyone who abuses the ecosystem and avoids accepting the fact that our ‘common home’ is in danger should be held accountable,” the pope stated referring to President Donald Trump.
“It is easy to fall prey to an unbalanced and arrogant anthropocentrism, the ‘I’ at the centre of everything, which gives excessive importance to our role as human beings, positioning us as absolute rulers of all other creatures,” he continued.
“A distorted interpretation of biblical texts on creation has contributed to this misinterpretation, which leads to the exploitation of the earth to the point of suffocating it,” he added.
“Exploiting creation: this is the sin. We believe that we are at the centre, claiming to occupy God’s place and so we ruin the harmony of creation, the harmony of God’s plan,” the pope explained.
“We become predators, forgetting our vocation as custodians of life,” the pope continued…
Our poorest brothers and sisters and our mother earth lament for the damage and injustice we have caused, and demand we take another course,” he added. “demands of us a conversion, a change of path; taking care of the earth too, of creation.” (“Pope Francis Takes Aim At President Trump In A Recent Speech: ‘Abusing The Ecosystem Is A Grave Sin, Trump Should Be Held Accountable’,” ConsROOM, Rapture Ready News, September 18, 2020)
Mother Earth worship is the central unifying concept the father of lies has perpetrated that fits most propitiously within this spirit of Antichrist model. Branding against deniers of climate change as being the worst sinners within the religion of humanism is designed to make Christianity appear to be a false worship system. This is because the Bible declares that Jesus Christ, who is the very Word of God (John 1:1–3), is who has this earthly orb in His grip. It is not man who controls planet earth.
This, of course, is antithesis to the unimpeachable declarations of the environmental gurus who say man is destroying the earth with greenhouse gases from carbon emission. Only man, himself, through draconian actions to stop these deadly gases, can save himself from choking to death from unbreathable air or drowning because of the melting ice of the North and South poles.
Make no mistake, denial of God’s truth regarding creation and Jesus Christ is at the black heart of the lawlessness and evil comportment we are experiencing. The young are especially affected and infected by this Antichrist spirit. The rebellion is prophetically scheduled to get worse—much worse, and climate-change fervor will increase the nearer the age draws to the time of Tribulation.
While we move through this election season and watch the evil become increasingly worse, let us acknowledge that there is only satanic deception within the “Mother Earth” delusion being foisted particularly upon the young minds among us.
