The Pope says Earth looks like 'an immense pile of filth

Published by Business Insider on Thu, 18 Jun 2015

Pope Francis is not too happy with how humans have treated the Earth.On Thursday, the Pope delivered his long-anticipated encyclical on climate change that called on citizens and governments to do their part to leave a lighter footprint.Following the announcement, the Pope went on an aggressive tweet spree, calling out cultures that encourage consumerism and pollution.The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.' Pope Francis (@Pontifex) June 18, 2015These problems are closely linked to a throwaway culture.' Pope Francis (@Pontifex) June 18, 2015In the encyclical, the Pope called for global citizens to pressure governments to cut down on waste.'Climate change is a global problem with grave implications: environmental, social, economic, political and for the distribution of goods,' the Pope said, according to The New York Times. 'It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.'As the New York Times notes, the Pope hopes that the 184-page manifest on climate change will help put pressure on governments and big businesses to take greater steps to curb emissions and pollution.Some political analysts predict that the Pope's climate change agenda could cause a headache for some politicians in the US that would rather sidestep the issue. Some high-profile lawmakers in the US have criticized the Pope for taking positions on issues outside of religion."I don't go to mass for economic policy or for things in politics," former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said earlier this week. "I've got another people helping me along the way with that."Join the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: 12 awesome facts about WWE superstar Brock Lesnar
