    POPE FRANCIS TAKES ON CLIMATE CHANGE – ‘SAFEGUARD CREATION’

    Pope Francis Makes Biblical Case For Addressing Climate Change: ‘If We Destroy Creation, Creation Will Destroy Us’

    Jack Jenkins, May 21, 2014 (ClimateProgress)

    “Pope Francis made the religious case for tackling climate change…[and issued] a dire warning about the potentially catastrophic effects of global climate change…[H]e argued that respect for the ‘beauty of nature and the grandeur of the cosmos’ is a Christian value, noting that failure to care for the planet risks apocalyptic consequences… ‘Safeguard Creation,’ he said. ‘Because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us!
