Pope Says Coronavirus Pandemic Could Be Nature's Response to Climate Crisis: CNN

Reuters

Pope Francis has said the coronavirus pandemic is one of "nature's responses" to humans ignoring the current ecological crisis, CNN reports. 

In an email interview published Wednesday in The Tablet and Commonwealth magazines, the pontiff said the outbreak offered an opportunity to slow down the rate of production and consumption and to learn to understand and contemplate the natural world.

"We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted? Who speaks now of the floods?" the Pope said.

"I don't know if these are the revenge of nature, but they are certainly nature's responses," he added.
