Pope Francis: “Every Person Living on This Planet” Should Act on Climate

On Thursday, the Vatican released “Laudato Si,” a highly anticipated letter from Pope Francis that promises to reframe the debate on what to do about climate change—in the pope’s words, “one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.”

The encyclical—an emphatic type of papal letter, and the first ever written on environment—is addressed to “every person living on this planet.” It firmly and unequivocally characterizes climate change as a human rights issue, and calls for a radical and urgent transformation of global politics and individual lifestyles to combat it.
