The pope warns that the Earth is on its way to self-destruction without action


ROME: Pope Francis warned Thursday that the world is “on a path of self-destruction” if political leaders fail to courageously use the Covid-19 pandemic as an opportunity to make the planet a fairer and greener place.
In a video message released on the occasion of World Earth Day, Francis said that political leaders have the opportunity to “come out better” after lessons learned about social injustices exposed during the pandemic.
“Both global disasters, Covid and the climate, show that we have no time to waste,” Francis said.
“Time is running out and, as Covid-19 has shown, we have the means to face the challenge. We have the means. It is time to act, we are at the limit. “Francis made his environmental appeal a hallmark of his papacy, denouncing how rich countries have plundered God’s creation for profit at the expense of the poor and indigenous peoples.
In his message, Francis said that the adversities humanity faced in the pandemic should push leaders to pursue innovation and invention to better protect the planet.
He appealed to “all the leaders of the world: act courageously, act fairly and always tell the truth to people, so that people know how to protect themselves from the destruction of the planet and how to protect the planet from the destruction that many times in which we activate. ”
