Pope Francis: The Planet is at a 'Breaking Point' June 18, 2015
“The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth,” writes Pope Francis in his bold new manifesto on climate change. His long-awaited encyclical is sometimes stern—"We are not God. The Earth was here before us” —and often poetic—“The poor and the Earth are crying out.” Our panel weighs in on how this might affect ecological policies around the world, and discusses a new poll that finds Americans Catholics divided on how much climate change matters.
