Pope expresses hopes for UN climate conference
November 07, 2016
Following his November 6 Angelus address, Pope Francis expressed his hopes for COP22, the UN climate change conference in Morocco.
“Two days ago, the Paris Agreement on the climate of the planet came into force,” he told the crowds in St. Peter’s Square. “This breakthrough proves that humanity has the ability to work together for the protection of Creation, to put the economy at the service of people and to build peace and justice.”
“Then, tomorrow, in Marrakech, Morocco, a new session of a climate conference, aims to, along with other things, implement this agreement,” he added. “I hope that awareness of our responsibility for the care of the common home guides this whole process.”
