Pope says humanity will "go down" if it does not address climate change

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Pope Francis said the recent spate of hurricanes should prompt people to understand that humanity will “go down” if it does not address climate change and history will judge those who deny the science on its causes.

“If we don’t turn back, we will go down,” Francis told reporters on Sunday on the plane returning from Colombia. Francis strongly backed the 2015 Paris agreement on reducing global warming, from which the United States withdrew this year. (Reporting By Philip Pullella; Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
