  •  It Would Be Something (0+ / 0-)

    It would be more than what so far is just words.

    •  It surely would something. (8+ / 0-)

      Dateline 12/10/10

      Last year Inhabitat reported that the Vatican was spending $660 million on a massive 100MW photovoltaic installation that would effectively be Europe’s largest solar power plant. Now complete and in operation, the installation of this array has not only made Vatican City the first solar powered nation state in the world, but according to the state’s official newspaper, it is now the greenest state in the world.

      •  what if this became a papal directive (0+ / 0-)

        require every diocese to become carbon free
        as soon as possible

        either wind, solar, tidal.

        and for their vehicles to be EV as soon as options
        become available.  

        think of what this would mean, if the one of the
        largest religions of the west were to push this

      •  Vatican Investment (0+ / 0-)

        Yes, I applaud the Vatican for investing in lowering its energy bills. Because that reduces its pollution. It's spending the savings on the poor, right?

        Oh, BTW, that was the previous pope (still drawing a salary and living off those donations from poor people) in 2010. So yeah, so far just words from this pope.
