Pope Francis calls for environmental protection to ensure 'food for all'

  • Making his views on environmental issues and food security clear, Pope Francis has called for greater protection of the environment so that nobody on Earth is deprived of food.

    He said that there was “enough food for all” on the planet, but there seemed to be a “lack of willingness to share it with everyone”. He said that the “powerful” will have to answer to God if they failed in this regard.

    The Pope’s forceful remarks come before the publication of an encyclical on environmental issues.
