French official praises papal teaching on environment

November 21, 2013

Nicholas Hulot, a French environmentalist who has served as President François Hollande’s “special envoy for the protection of the planet” since December, said that papal teaching on the environment since Pope Paul VI needs to become better known, L’Osservatore Romano reported.

Climate change, Hulot added, affects “all the conditions of human solidarity so important to the Church.”

In international climate change negotiations, he said, “there will be no winners or losers: all will emerge as winners or losers.”
