Pope Francis said on Sunday (23) that recent heat waves in many parts of the world and floods in countries such as South Korea showed that more urgent action was needed to combat climate change.
“Please, I renew my appeal to world leaders to do something more concrete to limit emissions of pollutants,” the Pope said at the end of his Angelus address to the crowds in St. Peter’s Square.
“It is an urgent, unavoidable challenge that concerns everyone. Let us protect the home of all of us, ”she added.
Francis has urged nations to quickly move away from fossil fuels and has made protecting the environment a cornerstone of his pontificate. He noted in his encyclical “Laudato Si” (Praise Be), released in 2015, that the planet was “beginning to look more and more like a huge pile of filth”.
This Sunday, the Pope expressed solidarity with those suffering from the climate crisis and those who help them.
Parts of the southern United States experienced a record heat wave, while extreme temperatures were also recorded in China and southern Europe, including Italy and Greece.
