Pope Francis in TED Talk: ‘We only have a few years’ news to fix climate change


Vatican City, October 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis once again called for action on “climate change”, this time with an alarm ringer claiming he has less than 30 years to do so. The Holy Father did not mention God or Jesus Christ in his 13-minute video.

The new video is part of Ted’s “Countdown” series, which seeks to “accelerate resolution of the climate crisis” and aims to build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, to a zero in the race. Carbon World. ”

Pope Francis said, “Science tells us, every day, with greater precision, that urgent action is needed … if we hope to survive radical and catastrophic climate change.” He said, “This is a scientific fact.”

He calls for radical changes, declaring that a fundamental change in our way of living is inevitable, but stops giving concrete examples of what will happen. “With this crisis, none of us should come out – we cannot come out the same: from a crisis, we never come out the same – and it will take time, and hard work to overcome it.”

“We have to doubt them; Imagine new solutions, ”he continues, referring to those skeptics of the climate change agenda. He further states that the goal will be to “create a world where we can meet the needs of all present generations, including all, without compromising the prospects of future generations.”

Pope Francis notes the concept of “Integral Ecology” as a chapter title and a major theme in his 2015. Lodato Si, Which he describes as a general response to “cry of the earth” and “cry of the poor”. According to Pope, this concept reminds us that we are “dependent on each other as well as our earth”, and should be the guiding principle of future life.

The pontiff proposes three globalist courses of action, drawn from its teaching Laudato C.

The first step is education that focuses on caring for the earth, “to develop an understanding that environmental problems are linked to human needs.” He is praised for the “new ecological and social awareness” as well as the fight that wages some “to protect and protect the environment”.

As a second issue, Pope referred to water and nutrition: “Providing adequate nutrition for all through non-destructive agricultural methods should become the main objective of the entire cycle of food production and distribution.”

Third, Pope Francis called for the replacement of “fossil fuels with clean energy sources”. He said that scientists think it has less than 30 years to “significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere”.

The global theme continues, as Pope suggests, “except for the investment of companies that do not meet the criteria of integral ecology” that do them.

In a decidedly environmentalist turn of phrase, the Pope states: “In fact, the Earth must work and be cremated and protected. We cannot continue to squeeze it like oranges. And we can say that it – taking care of the earth – is a human right. ”

The pope also attacks the current major economic system, stating that it is “unstable”. Consequently, we have a “moral imperative, and practical urgency, to rethink many things: the way we produce; the way we consume; our culture of waste; our short-term vision; the exploitation of the poor And our indifference to them; increasing inequalities and our dependence on harmful energy sources. ”

Integral ecology is what the Pope identifies as the foundation of a new relationship between man and nature. He continues by stating that it leads to a “new economy”, which “focuses on the integral welfare and improvement of the human being – not the destruction – of our common household.”

This system of life would also require a revolution, or renewal in the political system, called “one of the highest forms of charity”, because love “encompasses all people and includes nature.”

Pope Francis said that “we must work with urgency.”

In the 13-minute video, the Pope never mentioned the importance of God or Jesus Christ or religion. Only two paragraphs of the transcript containing the word “faith” do not refer to Catholicism, but simply do not ask people of any faith, or anyone, to attempt climate change prevention.

The pope is no stranger to promoting the climate change argument, and despite citing scientists in his talk, scientists have corrected it by saying that “the pope is getting terrible advice from some very specialized churches that have scientific knowledge.” Is severely lacking. ”

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 alarm campaign to fight climate change.

Pope Francis also sent a message to the United Nations 2019 Conference on Climate Change, calling for political action to curb climate change, as well as trying to ensure that the poor in society would be protected from its effects.

Earlier, in his message for the World Day of Prayer for the care of the Pope of Creation, the Pope said, “We have caused a climate emergency that threatens nature and life, including our own.”
