In one of his strongest statements, the pontiff said: "I don't know if it (human activity) is the only cause, but mostly, in great part, it is man who has slapped nature in the face."
Those of us who understand the urgency of acting to protect our environment were grateful for the Pope's words and hope this is the beginning of real change.
