Pope Francis calls for action on climate change

Pope Francis waded into the hot-button political issue of climate change in remarks at the White House, where President Barack Obama and a crowd of thousands welcomed him.

“It seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation,” he said. “When it comes to the care of our ‘common home,’ we are living at a critical moment of history.”

“Such change demands on our part a serious and responsible recognition, not only of the kind of world we may be leaving to our children, but also to the millions of people living under a system which has overlooked them,” Francis said.
