Pope Francis and the Environment: Why His New Climate Encyclical Matters

The Intersection of Science Religion, Politics & Ethics via Yale University: In the summer of 2015, Pope Francis is expected to issue a Papal Encyclical on the environment, in which he is expected to declare climate action a moral imperative for the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. This panel of experts from across several disciplines at Yale discusses the potential implications of this event–and how it might transform the global climate debate for Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

The sea turtles were a lovely reflection about this diving excursion. I ran into some unusual things as well.  Such as sea slugs that squirt ink if alarmed and giant triangle rock formations.
