Jay Richards, assistant research professor of business at The Catholic University of America, said he wanted to explore the pope's words as they relate to the relationship of humans to the environment as much as their ties to church and society.
Anticipating that the pope would "come down strongly that humans are responsible for global warming," Richards said he expects that part of the encyclical will get much of the attention with some comments being taken out of context while the pope's moral perspectives and the theological basis for his concerns will be widely missed.
