Not Rex: Pope Francis calls out capitalism as culprit for climate change

Like this video? rabble is reader-supported journalism. Chip in to keep videos like these coming.

It takes something special for a religious patriarch to resist capitalism and climate change. And true catastrophe is it for Pope Francis as he urges world leaders to hear the cry of the earth.

The Pope still has a ways to go on other issues (re: women's rights, LGBTQ rights, etc.), so let's hope this new wave will continue.
