Segment 3 – Pope Francis Calls on Nations to ‘End the Era of Fossil Fuel’
Pope Francis has doubled down in his personal war on fossil fuels while condemning ‘extreme practices’ such as fracking. It is time world leaders to ‘listen to science and institute a rapid and equitable transition to end the era of fossil fuel,’ the pontiff urges in his message for the Feast of Creation, to be celebrated on September 1.”  Dr. Thomas Williams joins us to discuss.

Williams has written widely on theology, philosophy, ethics, and spirituality, and his 15 books include Who Is My Neighbor? Personalism and the Foundations of Human Rights and The World As It Could Be: Catholic Social Thought for a New Generation.
