I’ll be the first to admit I’m not always happy with the Catholic Church. Sometimes I feel they step back when they should step forward. But it pleases me immensely that the Pope has taken such an interest in the environment.
The Pope has called once again for people to take climate change seriously. He wants people to have greater respect for the wonders of God’s creation. He understands how dangerous climate change could be for humanity and the planet.
He also held a youth rally on the environment.
I find it very hopeful that more religious leaders are taking an interest in the environment. Where scientific arguements may not win people over, discussions begun by religious leaders may help people to understand.
