Pope Francis Calls For Global Climate Action - On Point | Tom Ashbrook

Pope Francis delivers his message on the occasion of an audience with participants of Rome’s diocese convention in St. Peter’s Square, at the Vatican, Sunday, June 14, 2015. Francis engaged in some self-promotion during his weekly blessing, alerting the thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square that his first solo encyclical is coming out on Thursday and inviting them to pay attention to environmental degradation around them.

Pope Francis is not afraid to go big on an issue, and this week the Pope is going big on climate change – and hoping to take faithful Catholics and the whole world with him.  In a powerful encyclical coming out tomorrow, Pope Francis says “our common home” – Creation – is in danger.  Denial is immoral.  Half measures to respond are no longer enough. Humanity must rethink its relationship with the Earth.  The way it lives.  And rich nations first, to save the poor.  The message is direct and detailed and challenging to nearly all.  This hour On Point: Pope Francis goes all in on battling climate change.
