Clerics from around the globe met in Cyprus last week to discuss increasing evidence of global warming and its' impact to religious teachings of all denominations. With global warming now proven by compelling scientific evidence religious leaders are concerned what this may mean to believers of the faith.
Bishops representing Pope Benedict indicated that priests have been asking if global warming evidence that the sins of mankind will soon be punished here on earth, will Armageddon will soon be upon us, and is Hell getting cooler, at least comparatively speaking?
The concern is that as global warming continues Hell may soon be considered not such a bad place to be after all resulting in a panic situation for the faithful.
In a historic show of solidarity over the issue, keynote speaker Most Reverend Rowan Williams the Archbishop of Canterbury addressed the convention declaring the scientific evidence is now irrefutable.
"The past decade was 0.6 degrees Celsius warmer than the 1960s, and 0.2 degrees warmer than the 1990s, while that may seem small, the planet has already been changed and while hell has not changed during that time it is that much cooler by comparison to life here on earth."
"Glaciers and sea ice are melting, heavy rainfall is intensifying and heat waves are more common."
"As leaders of the faith we must change as well."
Williams pointed out that with the cooling of Hell "Fire and brimstone style preaching may become a thing of the past."
While fares are still one-way only he believes it is only a matter of time before "Hell will become more and more well known and appealing as an all-season travel destination like Ibiza or Mazatlan."
