Were Still Trying To Figure Out .......Environmental Justice

A solar power project at Santa Clara University
Santa Clara University, a private Jesuit school in California’s Silicon Valley, is using solar to get it closer to its net-zero carbon goal. The University installed a new 1-megawatt system on the roofs of its event center, a recreation center and a parking garage late last month. The school just received its first bill since the system went in, said Joe Sugg, who heads up the University’s energy program. “So we’re still figuring out how much this will save us,” he said. The University has made a pledge to be carbon-neutral by 2016, just five years off, Sugg said.“It’s not so much an investment in solar,” Sugg said. “It’s an investment in environmental justice, and it’s an investment in our core values as a Jesuit institution.” Sugg said the university is aggressively going after its goal to reduce its carbon emissions in order to meet its goal.

Environmentalism is its own religion. Environmental Justice is the new buzzword among Catholic dissidents. As soon as you hear a Catholic say he is for environmental justice, I assure you that he is also for contraception, for homos@xual unions, and for ordaining women. The four stances are part of a package of leftist ideology. No surprise that the looney Jesuits are trying to be at the forefront of this buffoonery.

Was it not in Genesis that man was entrusted with caring for creation?

Has the university made a pledge to have a chaste student body by 2016? Yeah, thought so.
