VATICAN CITY, October 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis has again called for action on “climate change”, this time saying it is less than 30 years old. The Holy Father does not mention God or Jesus Christ at all in his 13-minute video.
The new video is part of the TED “Countdown” series, which seeks to “accelerate solutions to the climate crisis” and aims to build a “better future by halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, in the race to zero carbon world. “
Pope Francis opens, saying: “Science tells us more accurately every day that urgent action is needed … if we want to keep the hope of avoiding radical and catastrophic climate change.”
He called for radical change, saying that a fundamental change in our way of life was inevitable, but did not give specific examples of what would change. “None of us should come out of this crisis the same – we can’t get out the same way: we never get out of a crisis the same – and it will take time and hard work to overcome it.”
“We will have to … convince those who doubt; imagine new solutions, ”he continued, referring to those who are skeptical of the climate change agenda. He also said that the goal should be to “build a world in which we can meet the needs of present generations, including all, without compromising the capabilities of future generations.”
Pope Francis notes the concept of “integrated ecology”, a chapter title and a dominant theme in his 2015 encyclical. If he is praised, which he characterizes as a common response to “weeping on earth” and “weeping for the poor.” This concept, according to the Pope, reminds us that we are “interdependent with each other and with our Mother Earth,” and should be a guiding principle of future life.
The pontiff offers three global modes of action that are derived from his teachings through Praised And.
The first step is education that focuses on caring for the earth, “developing an understanding that environmental issues are related to human needs.” He welcomed the “new environmental and social consciousness” as well as the struggle that some are waging for “environmental protection and justice”.
As a second question, the Pope mentioned water and nutrition: “Ensuring adequate nutrition for all through non-destructive agricultural methods must become the main goal of the whole cycle of food production and distribution.”
Third, Pope Francis calls for the replacement of “fossil fuels with clean energy sources.” He said scientists believe there are less than “30 years” during which “to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.”

The globalist theme continues, as the pope proposes “excluding from investment those companies that do not meet the parameters of integrated ecology”, while rewarding those who do.
In a categorical ecological twist of the phrase, the pope states: “In fact, the Earth must be cultivated and cultivated, cultivated and protected. We can’t keep squeezing it like an orange. And we can say that this – caring for the Earth – is a human right. “
The pope is also attacking the current prevailing economic system, saying it is “unsustainable”. We therefore have “a moral imperative and a practical urgency to rethink many things: the way we produce; the way we consume; our waste culture; our short-term vision; the exploitation of the poor and our indifference to them; growing inequalities and our dependence on harmful energy sources. “
Integral ecology is what the Pope defines as the basis for a new connection between man and nature. He goes on to say that this is leading to a “new economy” focused on “overall human well-being and on improving, not destroying, our common home.”
This system of life would also require a revolution or renewal of the political system, which is called “one of the highest forms of charity,” because love “includes all nations and it includes Nature.”
Pope Francis closes, saying “we must act urgently.”
In the 13-minute video, the pope never mentions God or Jesus Christ, or even the importance of religion. The only two paragraphs of the transcript that contain the word “faith” do not refer to Catholicism, but simply ask people of any faith to participate in efforts to prevent climate change.
The pope is no stranger to promoting climate change, and although he cites scientists in his speech, he has been corrected by scholars who say that “the pope receives terrible advice from some exalted church officials who are severely deficient in scientific knowledge. “
In 2017, Pope Francis appeared in a film warning of the dangers of climate change and recently encouraged climate change activist Greta Thunberg to continue her alarming campaign to combat climate change.
Pope Francis also sent a message to the UN Climate Change Conference in 2019, urging political action to prevent climate change, as well as trying to ensure that the poor in society are protected from its effects.
Earlier, in his message for World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, the pope said: “We have created an emergency situation in the climate that seriously threatens nature and life itself, including our own.”
