Pope's encyclical blames the inidifference on the powerful

From today's Guardian online. 

"Pope Francis has called on the world’s rich nations to begin paying their “grave social debt” to the poor and take concrete steps on climate change, saying failure to do so presents an undeniable risk to humanity.

The pope’s 180-page encyclical on the environment is not only a moral call for action on phasing out the use of fossil fuels, as was expected. It is also a document infused with an activist anger and concern for the poor, casting blame at the indifference of the powerful."

It will be interesting to see if Alive modifies its stance on climate change in light of the new encyclical.
