A very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system. — Pope Francis
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, or Pope Francis as he is more commonly known, has embodied humility and compassion since he was first ordained as a Catholic priest in 1969 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Over the last six decades, he has dedicated his life’s work to spread the word of God, preaching unity instead of division, humility over consumerism, and protecting the planet rather than contributing towards its destruction.
Since more than 99% of climate scientists agree humans are warming the planet — and we are running out of time to prevent yet more dangerous impacts — the Pope’s words take on an even more urgent meaning.
