Pope Francis to lay bare ‘terrible world war’ on nature in papal letter

Pope Francis has said he will issue a follow-up document on the protection of nature because a “terrible world war” against the environment was taking place. The pontiff said the papal statement – a follow-up to his 2015 encyclical on the climate crisis – would be issued on 4 October, the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of the environment. Describing nature as a “sacred gift from the creator”, Francis urged people to take the side of the “victims of environmental and climatic injustice” and called for an end to “the senseless war on our common home, it is a terrible world war”.
