Pope Calls on Governments to Stop Acting Like Trash, Lest We Become Trash

The Slot -

The Slot—For all his power to decide what things are Allowed/Not Allowed, Forgivable/Unforgivable, Pope Francis has no way of forcing governments to act, other than through pontifical persuasion. This is hard for the Chill Pope, because he, like many of us, can see that we are slowly but surely destroying the planet—a very unchill thing to do.

Pope Francis implored government officials to act on climate change or leave Earth in ruins. He said inaction would leave the Earth in “rubble, deserts and refuse.”
