Pope Francis: Global warming is a threat to humanity

Pope Francis: Global warming is a threat to humanity | wildfire climate | Scoop.it
Pope Francis' long-awaited climate change encyclical, entitled "Laudato Si" or "Be Praised," recasts global warming as a moral, religious and ethical issue.
Ron Steffens's insight:

We will be drier some places and times, wetter in others, burning and flooding and facing changed lands and waters. So it is good to have leaders of faith lead us into the changing world --where we'll need the moral, religious and ethical tools that this encyclical offers.
