Pope Blasts Climate Skeptics, Cites 'Moral' Duty To Act

Pope Blasts Climate Skeptics, Cites 'Moral' Duty To Act

In his evaluation of climate change, Pope Francis said: "Each person has his own moral responsibility and the politicians have theirs".

In his Q&A, the Pope went on to speak of a climate change report that asserted "we only have three years to turn back, or there will be bad consequences". "They are very clear", he said.

The first questions were asked by Colombian reporters, regarding the Apostolic Visit. But there are nonetheless steps toward peace.

The Trump administration announced September 5 that it would be taking steps to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, commonly known as DACA, which has benefited hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who entered the minors. "Keeping young people away from the family is not something that brings good fruit".

Francis said he was particularly struck by news last week of a Russian boat that managed to go through the North Pole without an icebreaker.

"A good pro-lifer understands that family is the cradle of life, and that its unity must be defended", Francis said during a wide-ranging interview aboard the papal plane, after a trip to Colombia.

"In the end, young people feel like they have no hope". "Anything that goes against the roots", he continued, "steals their hope".

"We can not be Christians who continually put up "do not enter" signs", Pope Francis said, because "the Church is not ours, she is God's".

The Pope's call for truth, justice, and reconciliation happened on the third day of his Colombian tour, where he led a mass that was followed by a prayer for national reconciliation.

President Donald Trump's immigration policies aren't impressing Pope Francis. But, he said, this is not enough. "A government must manage this problem with the primary virtue of a governor, that is prudence". Sessions said that it was an "unconstitutional" overreach of executive power, especially since Congress refused several times to grant such benefits to undocumented immigrants. He suggested that countries might be only be able to accept a certain number of migrants before there is a danger of "non-integration".

When asked why some governments refused to see the importance of the issue, Francis quoted the book of Psalms in the Old Testament.

A Vatican official said at the time that the US move was a "slap in the face" for the pope and the Vatican. "I pray for that".

While in Colombia, Francis refrained from making any public comments about the deteriorating political and humanitarian situation next door in Venezuela, though he did meet briefly with a delegation of Venezuelan bishops. He said that the technical or political aspects of the peace process are necessary, but they will only go so far.
