Last week at the Vatican Conference on Climate Change, Pope Benedict XVI in his remarks at te conference allegedly stated "...Replacing cars with bicycles and bicycle paths will be painful in the beginning but this is how we will save the world ourselves. Humans lived for 5 million years without cars until 100 years ago. This proves that we can all live without cars again."
That's an incredible statement, one not picked up by the mainstream media, so we cannot confirm it. We do know however that the Pope did indeed speak at the Conference.
