Obama hails pope's 'clear and powerful' message on climate

President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the pope’s call for action on climate change and said the United States should lead global efforts to cut carbon pollution and bolster clean energy sources. “I welcome His Holiness Pope Francis’s encyclical and deeply admire the pope’s decision to make the case — clearly, powerfully and with the full moral authority of his position — for action on global climate change,” Obama said in a statement. The pontiff said Thursday that rich countries must bear responsibility for creating the problem posed by climate change, and finance a solution.
