Calvin Beisner, the founder of the Cornwall Alliance and one of the main people behind the attack on Pope Francis's anticipated climate and sustainability-focused encyclical, states in a recent video that he is an authority on the issued of climate change because he has “read some 50 books… on the science of climate change.”
