Pope Francis has now focused his environmental message directly towards the rich and powerful, reported the Huffington Post.
The pontiff addressed an audience at Saint Peter’s Basilica and prayed that God would “enlighten those who hold power and money so that they avoid the sin of indifference . . . and take care of the world we inhabit.” One of the biggest threats to the environment is the indifference exuded by the world’s elite, they are the people who have a voice.
The address was part of the celebration of the first World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Pope Francis sent a series of tweets calling upon the people to rally for the environment.

Pope Francis drops the hammer in this last tweet.
The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.
