Pope Blasts Climate Skeptics, Cites 'moral' Duty to Act

Monday, 11 September 2017 09:39 AM

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (AP) — Pope Francis has sharply criticized climate change skeptics, saying history will judge those who failed to take the necessary decisions to curb heat-trapping emissions blamed for the warming of the Earth.

Francis was asked about climate change and the spate of hurricanes that have pummeled the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean recently as his charter plane left Colombia and flew over some of the devastated areas.

He said: "Those who deny this must go to the scientists and ask them. They speak very clearly" — referring to experts who blame global warming on man-made activities.

Francis said scientists have clearly charted what needed to be done to reverse course on global warming and said individuals and politicians had a "moral responsibility" to do their part.
