....A group of retired NASA scientists and engineers has written a letter to Pope Francis urging him to be skeptical of global warming claims coming from Vatican advisers.
“This letter is respectfully submitted on behalf of an independent, all-volunteer team of more than 20 retired NASA Apollo Program veterans, who joined together in February 2012 to perform an objective, un-funded, independent study of scientific claims regarding significant global warming caused by human activity, known as anthropogenic global warming (AGW),” wrote Dr. Harold Doiron, a retired NASA scientist who now chairs the The Right Climate Stuff Research Team.
“We feel compelled to write you because we are deeply troubled by the statements generated by the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS) advocating that man-made CO2 is likely to cause a climate disaster that must be immediately mitigated by adopting United Nations’ proposals to enact world-wide CO2 emissions controls,” Doiron wrote.....

But I'm sure, you can look it up.
They indicate high Papal priority for an issue at a given time.
Pope Francis has called for his encyclical on the environment to be received with an “open spirit”, saying the unprecedented ecological statement should be seen as an appeal for responsibility.

The 180-pages deal only just a bit with "global warming".
The 180-pages deal only just a bit with "global warming". And some (conservative) Catholics in some parts of the USA are just one small part of Catholics in the world.
Certainly, there are other important topics for possible encylicals, but this Pope decided to make one about the environment, with the central message: what sort of world do we want to leave for future generations?
