“Enough about fossil fossils”: Pope Francis

Pope Francis urged the world and governments to abandon the use of fossil fuels as soon as possible and put an end to “this senseless war against creation”, asking people to repent of their “ecological sins”.

In his message for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, which will take place on September 1, the head of the Catholic Church stated that “the rapacious consumerism, the feeding of his own heart, is disrupting the water cycle on the planet.

It also shows that “the relentless use of fossil fuels and the clearing of forests” will generate an increase in global temperatures never seen before, creating severe droughts and water crises both in rural communities and in large metropolises.

He also added the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which urgently called for climate action, ensuring a more sustainable and just world. “Let’s join hands and take courageous steps so that justice and peace flow across the Earth,” the ecclesiastical leader said.

On the other hand, he called on the governments of the world to transform their public policies, so that they stop “favoring the wealth of the few and the many in base conditions”, so that it becomes clear that the richest countries “accumulated summer debt”. .

In the same lines, he asked the world leaders who met at the COP28 summit, to begin in Dubai on November 30 of this year, “to listen to science and initiate the transition to the end of fossil fuels quickly and equally”. .

He urged the rest of society to adopt “lifestyles that involve less waste and less unnecessary consumption.” In addition, he demanded that he use moderate resources, practice “sobriety” and contribute to ecological and “socially responsible” products and services.
