Protecting planet not a choice but a duty, pope says| Reuters

QUITO Pope Francis on Tuesday appealed to the world not to turn its back on the "reality" of environmental decay and its effects on the poor, saying protecting the planet was no longer a choice but a duty. The pope, in a speech to university professors and students on the third day of his trip to Ecuador, made his first full-court press on environmental issues since the publication last month of his ecology encyclical "Laudato Si." Francis has said he wants the encyclical to influence a United Nations climate change summit in Paris in December and has now effectively taken his campaign to convince governments on the road. In September, he visits the United States and the United Nations. #Environment #Argentina #Paraguay #Christianity #Ecuador
