Pope blames 'human selfishness' for global warmingSource BBC http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-33182065More Like This
Pope Francis has blamed human selfishness for global warming in his long-awaited encyclical calling for action on climate change.
In the letter, he urges the rich to change their lifestyles to avert the destruction of the ecosystem.
Environmentalists hope the message will spur on nations ahead of the UN climate conference in Paris in December.
But parts of the document, leaked earlier this week, have already been criticised by some US conservatives.
It has been dismissed by two Republican presidential candidates.
Humans to blame
The encyclical, named "Laudato Si (Be Praised), On the Care of Our Common Home", aims to inspire everyone - not just Roman Catholics - to protect the Earth.
The 192-page letter, which is the highest level teaching document a pope can issue, lays much of the blame for global warming on human activities.
Pope Francis writes that: "We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder h
Update on my HusbandFirst off, let me thank all of you who made comments and sent prayers and good wishes to me and Chris on my last journal, . I did not have the time to answer all of you individually, though I really wish I could have. You people are so special and kind to someone you have never met before and I can't tell you how much it meant to me.More Like This
But, now for the next chapter in this sad story.
The month of January and February have not been too wonderful for me. As many of you know my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer in February 2014 and went through chemotherapy and radiation therapy and was doing very well. He even had the month of December off, no treatments, no procedures, just some blood work and a port flush (for the chemotherapy, in his upper chest area). We had an appointment with the oncologist the first week of January to start the process of seeing if he could go to surgery to remove the lung tumor after all the treatment.

Like my whole body can't stay still
My knees have given out
Leaving me on the floor
Crying the one thing I hardly did
I'm now doing...
I'm Flooding the room with tears
Filling it with the sound of my wails
I'm collapsing of hurt
Memories flashing back
Clouding my head until I think I'm about to pass out
I'm showing you how broken I am...
That's what I am

An Extremely Small Update and a Feature.It has been ages since I wrote a journal entry. Almost a month.More Like This
The only interesting thing that has happened to me is that last week the weather was like summer, in the 80's. And that I finally saw Much Ado About Nothing with David Tennant and Catherine Tate. And I saw a live production of Hamlet two weeks in a row. I also got around to reading the first book of the Hunger Games series, and I thought it was pretty good. Please don't tell me any spoilers, as my mother has hidden the last two books because of my far too large amount of assigned reading that I have to do. *cries*
And that would be all that has happened to me. I've had a very boring month, I guess.
Ok. Time for a feature.
