The complete text of the landmark encyclical letter from Pope Francis that, as Time magazine reported, “rocked the international community”

In the Encyclical on Climate Change and Inequality, the beloved Pope exhorts the world to combat environmental degradation and its impact on the poor. In a stirring, clarion call that is not merely aimed at Catholic listeners but rather at a wide, lay audience, the Pope cites the overwhelming scientific evidence of climate change, and does not hesitate to detail how it is the result of a historic level of unequal distribution of wealth.

It is, in short, as the New York Times labeled it, “An urgent call to action…intended to persuade followers around the world change their behavior, in hopes of protecting a fragile planet.”

With an insightful and informative introduction by Harvard professor Naomi Oreskes, famed for her bestselling Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A powerful, prophetic, and personal plea for governments, religions, businesses, and individuals to work together to address climate change.”

    Time

  • “The pope’s clarion call adds an ethical dimension to a debate too often bogged down in warring statistics and economic arguments…His powerful message on climate change should have the skeptics and deniers, who’ve stood in the way of meaningful action, squirming in their seats and feeling the heat.”

    USA Today

  • “An urgent call to action.”

    New York Times

  • “The most astonishing and perhaps the most ambitious papal document of the past one hundred years.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “A bold act by the pope, the encyclical in many ways reflects a movement that has been growing for decades.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “In his masterful grasp of the science behind climate change, the pontiff unmasks himself as a policy wonk.”

    Washington Post

  • “The letter isn’t just a manifesto for clergy and bishops, but doubles as a call to action with scientific rational, written in plain language and addressed to ‘every person living on this planet.’”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Straight talk on climate change from one of the world’s most popular people may provide the necessary nudge to policymakers (and the rest of us). For this, the work deserves an enthusiastic imprimatur.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Mark Bramhall and Linda Korn provide a clear and appropriately didactic narration. Their performance is slowly paced and clearly pronounced to aid comprehension. They do not condescend to their listeners. They do not add drama when it is unnecessary. This encyclical repays careful study.”
