Pope Francis is holding a climate change conference at the vatican, according to VICE News.

“‘We have a profound responsibility to the fragile web of life on this Earth, and to this generation and those that will follow,’ Ban said in remarks carried by the official Vatican news service. ‘That is why it is so important that the world’s faith groups are clear on this issue — and in harmony with science.'”

An expected statement from the Pope may soon put the full support of the Roman Catholic Church behind the fight against Climate Change.

Dear Future Generations: Sorry.

“See, you can ignore [climate change], but the thing about truth is, it can be denied—not avoided. So I’m sorry future generations: I’m sorry our footprint became a sinkhole, and not a garden; I’m sorry that we paid so much attention to ISIS, and very little to how fast the ice is melting in the Arctic. […] We are not apart form nature, we are a part OF nature; and to betray nature is to betray us, to save nature is to save us.”

The U.S. is taking the helm regarding climate change and its alarming rate in the arctic, and, at the Arctic Council Friday, tried to make climate change a priority of the utmost importance, according to the Globe and Mail.

“‘This is not a future challenge, this is happening right now,’ Mr. Kerry said as he outlined the rapid retreat of Arctic ice cover, the collapse of permafrost with resulting massive releases of the potent greenhouse gas methane as well as dire coastal erosion and the acidification of the Arctic Ocean.”

McDonald's Goes Green

You can now have a little less regret while eating McDonald’s, according to VICE News. In a recent article, VICE went in depth about McDonald’s pledge to the environment.

“‘Making this pledge is the right thing to do for our company, the planet, and the communities in which our supply chain operates,’ McDonald’s vice president of supply chain and sustainability Francesca DeBiase said in a statement. ‘We’re excited to continue collaborating with our supplier partners to achieve our goals.'”

It is important to recognize that McDonald’s is one of the first major fast food chains—and one of the largest companies—to make such a commitment on its entire product line.

The US Economy Grew in 2014 — Carbon Pollution, Not So Much.

VICE News explores the intricate relationship—and lack thereof—between economies and carbon emissions.

Annual Changes In Energy-Related Carbon Dioxide Emissions

“If new US government figures are any indication, addressing climate change doesn’t have to mean curtailing economic growth. […] The agency said on Monday the US economy expanded by 2.4 percent in 2014, while greenhouse gas emissions increased 0.7 percent.”

Fascinating, gut wrenching article about the loss of life due to climate change in the Arctic.

“[The loss of life] is gut-wrenching. I fell in love with the polar regions as a kid, saw polar bears as a kid and I saw a healthy icy environment as a kid … We’re actually doing a big National Geographic story this summer between Greenland and Baffin Island called ‘The Last Ice.’ It’s going to be the last stronghold for multi-year ice in the Arctic in the next 20 to 30 years … That’s a blink, that’s a flash.”
