Pontiff going #UFC on #Climate Change

June 14th, 2015 · No Comments

This Thursday, the Vatican will release the Papal Encyclical “Laudato si’, on the care of our common home”.

Pope Francis’ decision to take such a serious stance on climate change (on the need to take action seriously to protect our common heritage, to protect the poorest among us, and to protect our common future) could have a dramatic impact on the global political dynamic.

And, by entering the fray, Pope Francis is taking on serious adversaries and creating serious foes. This preview captures the situation in a compelling manner.

For more substantive discussion of the Encyclical as tipping point, see Pope Francis’ climate encyclical: Are we close to a “tipping point” in the climate change debate?
