Pope Francis is looking forward to call the 1.2 billion Catholics across the world to take action on climate change. An encyclical will be issued to consider the moral and scientific case for a new global climate treaty.
Super-Typhoon Haiyan caused severe destruction to Tacloban, a city in the Philippines, in 2012. The Pope has planned to soon visit the region. Also, the Pope is likely to address the United Nations General Assembly on its 70th anniversary in September.
