Patriarch Bartholomew, On Pope Francis' Climate Encyclical (Time, Jun 18, 2015) "Therefore, the Pope's diagnosis is on the mark: "We are not faced with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather one complex crisis which is both social and environmental."  Indeed, as he continues to advance, we require "an integrated approach to combating poverty, restoring dignity to the underprivileged, and at the same time protecting nature."  It is also no surprise, then, that the Pope is concerned about and committed to issues like employment and housing."
