'My grandson Ever and his generation suffer the burdens of our past sins. I hear their cry and the cry of the planet. It is time, and long overdue, to end our nuclear war against the oceans. It is time to rescue our polar bears and save our butterflies, to reforest the Amazon and make a Franciscan peace with the timber wolf. Global warming is frightening our children, roiling our seas, and robbing the land of its dignity. Indeed, the time for redemption is upon us."
