The universe , created in and by the eternal Word, the "image of the invisible God," is destined for and addressed to man...Is modifying intentionally the weather what God has in mind by entrusting creation to us? Whether we admit how after 75 years we are just beginning to see the effects on Western civilization of something as unnatural as sanctioning and promoting contraception and abortion, or we understand how a society's mismanagement can distort the relationship to its climate and geography and resources and neighbors to the point of its demise, or a host of other cases, at some point we have to recognize that sometimes we set the trap of unintended consequences ourselves.
Catechism of the Catholic Church, 299
You don't have an understanding of something if you can't predict it, and we see every day how little we understand the weather and the climate. The best that could come of this is that a another pile of taxpayer-provided money gets squandered.
