Pope Francis spurs to speed up the ecological transition after COP28

Dubai, Dec 2 (Prensa Latina) Pope Francis requested on Saturday in his speech sent to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP28), as he was unable to attend here for health reasons, his political willingness to speed up the ecological transition.

In the document, read in that forum by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, which was published on Saturday by the Holy See Press Office, Francis stated that, in that sense, that COP28 should be a turning point, as it is now urgent to return to the right track and give “a sign of hope.”

The Pope assured that this transition must be efficient, obligatory and easy to monitor, as well as it must cover the fields of energy efficiency, renewable sources, the removal of fossil fuels, and education must be directed towards less dependent lifestyles on fossil fuels.

“Are we working for a culture of life or a culture of death?” Pope Francis asked those attending the event, which opened in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates on November 30 and will last until December 12, with the presence of over 150 heads of State and Government.

The Pope underscored that the ambition to produce and possess has turned into an obsession, leading to a boundless greed that has made the environment the target of unbridled exploitation. Finally, the senior Catholic authority noticed, “the disturbed climate is a warning to us to stop such a delirium of omnipotence.”
