Pope sounds pollution warning to oil bosses
VATICAN CITY: Pope Francis has told world oil executives that the transition to less-polluting energy sources “is a challenge of epochal proportions”.
He said yesterday that modern society with “massive movement of information, persons and things requires an immense supply of energy”.
However, he said 1 billion people still lack electricity.
The pope said meeting the energy needs of everyone on Earth must be done in ways “that avoid creating environmental imbalances”. – AP
