CWN Editor's Note: On November 1, Pope Francis participated in an online conservation with African university students.

“We are raping the Earth because we want wealth,” the Pope said. “Be committed to battling those who want to rape the Earth.”

“Deforestation is a crime against humanity,” he added. “We aren’t fully aware of the environmental debt we are leaving to future generations.”
