The Pope has apparently lent his approval to a petition by the Catholic Climate Movement, which wants to step up the pace on global warming policy. The petition's wording is as follows:
Climate change affects everyone, but especially the poor and most vulnerable people. Impelled by our Catholic faith, we call on you to drastically cut carbon emissions to keep the global temperature rise below the dangerous threshold of 1.5°C, and to aid the world’s poorest in coping with climate change impacts.
No fossil fuels for African people then. To save the poorest we had to abandon the poorest. It's Bến Tre all over again.
