Pope Francis has published his new Encyclical on the environment. It calls for fossil fuels to replaced as soon as possible. He urges the richer world to make changes in lifestyle and energy consumption to avert the unprecedented destruction of the ecosystem.
The encyclical, named “Laudato Si (Be Praised), On the Care of Our Common Home”, aims to inspire everyone – not just Roman Catholics – to protect the Earth. You can read the full text of the document by going to here. There is an overview of the document here.
