Libération, June 17, 2015

"Thou Shall Not Pollute" is written in stone on the front page ofLibération, as the world awaits tomorrow's release of the final version of Pope Francis' much-anticipated environmental encyclical.

The Pope will call for changes in energy consumption, according to a draft version of the encyclical which leaked four days before its official publication. The Pope reportedly will declare "the urgent challenge to protect our common home" and make calls for sustainable development. Francis reportedly blames human activity as the main cause of global warming.

The encyclical was revealed earlier this week by the Italian magazine L'Espresso, which managed to obtain a draft form of the document. The final version will be released Thursday at the Vatican.
