World leaders must reach a historic agreement to fight climate change and poverty at coming Paris, facing the stark choice to either “improve or destroy the environment”, Pope Francis said in Africa on Thursday.

“We are confronted with a choice which cannot be ignored: either to improve or destroy the environment,” the pope said in Nairobi, home to the U.N. Environment Programme headquarters.

He said the international community had to listen to the “cry rising up from humanity and the earth itself.”
