"How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?" Pope Francis, calling capitalism "a new tryanny." The Pope issues his first apostolic exhortation (the official platform of his papacy) in which he criticized the global economic system.

Prince Charles has called people who deny human-made climate change a "headless chicken brigade" who are ignoring overwhelming scientific evidence. He further accused "powerful groups of deniers" of mounting "a barrage of sheer intimidation" against opponents.
