I know we have not seen eye-to-eye on a lot of topics, and some of my blog articles might be considered, well, disrespectful.
But you need me for your big climate change campaign. Sure, you've got the UN, most of the world's governments, and anybody else that would happily put a thumb in the Church's eye. And you, too, of course. But there's one thing you don't have.
Oh, sure, I know what you're thinking. The polar bears standing on little islands of ice like, "Oh no, what are we to do? This is the last ice in the Arctic! The rest has all melted!" Seriously, is the ice melting faster than a polar bear can swim to safety?

Puh-leez. There is plenty of evidence to show the polar bear population is increasing. And the Bear is sure any outfit that fakes temperature data can put out whatever they want to the contrary about polar bear populations. Who are you going to believe, a bunch of atheistic, lefty hustlers who also support abortion and gay marriage?
Anyway, you don't want to have anything to do with those seal-breath killing machines. And as far as polar bear populations go, I can toe the company line, nudge-nudge, wink-wink. "Yes, the polar bears are all drowning. Poor cute, white, fluffy things." (And I'm brown, by the way. Just saying. World-wide relatability.)
There's one thing you need, and that's the Bear! The World's only Real Bear Catholic Blogger! Okay, now that that is settled, the Bear will need a little quid pro quo, if you know what I mean. That's Latin for a little sumpin' sumpin' for the talent, your favorite Ursus Arctos. That's Latin for "bear" of the "north." (Not sure how up on the ol' Latin you are, no offense.)
First, the Bear is a credible representative of the raw majesty of Nature. So it would be great if human beings would all kneel before him. I'm just going to assume we're good on that one. If poor people are knee-worthy, then a bear is a no-brainer. (Wouldn't be the first time someone, say a hiker, has knelt before a bear LOL.)
Next, I can't help but notice that I'm poor :-(
Yeah, maybe I sleep a lot, am overweight, lack marketable skills and motivation, and don't have a job. But if you put all the factors contributing to my poverty on one side, what you're left with on the other is the undeniable fact that the Bear is poor and you're -- with all due respect -- not. Therefore, the Bear must be poor because humans took his money. That's climate change logic. See, the Bear gets it. He's not some dumb polar bear. That's why he will be your perfect spokesanimal.
Here in the woodlands, the Bear has to make do with a modest bungalow. The Bear can't believe how little he's settling for, but here goes. A nice house with a big room for entertaining the woodland creatures. A swimming pool. Cable. And a pony.
Twice a week.
A percentage of sales of all Climate Change Bear (just a suggestion on the name) merchandise, to be negotiated by the Bear's agent.
Finally, an agent.
Well, that ought to do it. I'm confident that you will see just how badly the global warming change sustainability thing, you know -- our thing -- needs the Bear. Hey you know what "our thing" is in Italian? La Cosa Nostra. LOL
