Columnist George F. Will categorically attacks Pope Francis regarding his views on climate change and compulsive consumption (“Fact-Free Francis: The Pope’s Climate Agenda Does the Poor No Favors,” Sept. 21). Do those who worship at the altar of economic growth refuse to grasp the concept of sustainability that Mr. Will calls “the secular religion”?

If Mr. Will can imagine only fossil fuels as salvific (to use his word), it seems that the science of climate change has eluded him. His accusation that Pope Francis is “against modernity, rationality, science” is unfounded. Global air conditioning, anyone?
