In his weekly statement released today, President Barack Obama said the world needs a climate-change deal to protect the planet for our children and cited Pope Francis in reminding Americans that “this planet is a gift from God.
Obama pointed to the United Nations climate change conference that will convene in Paris at the end of November as an opportunity to forge such a deal.
“Because America is leading by example, 150 countries, representing over 85% of global emissions, have now laid out plans to reduce their levels of the harmful carbon pollution that warms our planet,” Obama said. “And it gives us great momentum going into Paris this December, where the world needs to come together and build on these individual commitments with an ambitious, long-term agreement to protect this Earth for our kids.”

n concluding his remarks, Obama cited Pope Francis.

“After all, as Pope Francis reminds us so eloquently, this planet is a gift from God–and our common home,” said Obama. “We should leave it to our kids in better shape than we found it.”
