Pope Francis announced on Wednesday that he will publish an update to his landmark 2015 thesis on the environment in October, just weeks before the next round of UN climate talks.
Earlier this month, the 86-year-old Argentine pontiff mentioned his plans to write a second part of “Laudato Si”. Without giving further details, he said only that he would address “current issues”.
His 2015 encyclical directly blamed humanity for global warming, and was seen as influential in the United Nations climate talks held in Paris that same year, which led to historic compromises in the Paris Agreement.
At his weekly audience at the Vatican on Wednesday, Pope Francis set the date of his new version for October 4, just weeks before the next round of UN discussions at COP28, which takes place in the United Arab Emirates in November and December. .
“On that date, I intend to publish an exhortation, a second ‘Laudato Si’,” he said.
