Slightly injured pope ends Colombia tour with unity appeal

The Latest Pope denounces human trafficking slavery

"He said no, he was not going to do it".

"Whoever denies it has to go to the scientists and ask them", Francis said.

Pope Francis has said that "history will judge" those who refuse to accept the science of climate change.

President Trump's move this month to end the five-year-old program instituted by President Obama plunged nearly 800,000 young people, known as "Dreamers", into uncertainty. "And we must take it seriously". "I believe in this". About 800,000 people are affected by Trump's decision to give Congress six months to end their limbo status. "Political leaders have their responsibility, [but] everyone has their own", he said.

"If someone is doubtful that this is true, they should ask scientists". They are not opinions on the fly.

The Pope is a strong supporter of the Paris climate agreement, a pledge by nearly 200 countries to reduce emissions linked to climate change.

The papal flight from Colombia passed near the Caribbean islands, where days ago the record-setting Hurricane Irma had left a trail of destruction before continuing on to put much of the western coast of Florida underwater overnight September 10. Though Pope Francis has been criticised for his perceived silence on the brutality of his homeland Argentina's authoritarian military Junta during the late 1970s and 1980s, during his time as Pope he has been an outspoken critic of human rights violations around the world and praised for his willingness to tackle world issues head on. Francis strongly backed the 2015 Paris agreement on reducing global warming, from which the United States withdrew this year.

"A phrase from the Old Testament comes to mind: "man is stupid, a stubborn, blind man", he added.

"When you don't want to see, you don't see", he said.

Francis used the trip to urge Colombians deeply polarized by a peace plan to shun vengeance after a bloody 50-year civil war.

The good news. he got up and kept doing his Pope thing.

"If we don't turn back", he concluded on Sunday, "we will go down".

Notwithstanding their suffering and the wounds of conflict and of centuries of exploitation, the people of Cartagena, which is built on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, brought joy, colour and beauty to the ceremony with their rich tradition of music and dance.

On the last day of his fifth visit as pope to his native continent, he reiterated calls for peace in Colombia and prayed for a peaceful end to Venezuela's "grave crisis".

On Sept. 10, the pope was making his way through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia when his special vehicle which enables him to interact with the crowd, made a sudden stop.
