Pope's adviser takes the BBVA Foundation award for his research on global warming

2016-01-16

As a recipient of the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards, Dr. Ramanathan has discovered that other human-induced gases and pollutants besides CO2 have the ability to alter the Earth's climate. In Pope Francis’s latest encyclical, Laudato Si, urges humanity to do away with fossil fuels, as science and religion meet to find a resolution with issues concerning global warming.

"Pollutants other than carbon dioxide are having a major impact on the current climate change. That's the bad news, the good news is that this climate pollutants are giving us a new opportunity to rapidly bring down global warming in the next thirty years”.

Dr. Ramanathan is not a Catholic, yet he has served on the Pontifical Academy of Sciences since 2004. In fact, it was this role that lead him to a chance encounter with the Pope back in May of 2014. 

POPE FRANCIS
"What world do we want to leave behind for those who come after us, for children who are growing? For the good of our common home, our generation and the future ones, every force in Paris must be directed toward weakening the impact of climate change and at the same time fighting poverty and cultivating human dignity”. 

Dr. Ramanathan has been an instrumental figure in Pope Francis efforts for climate change, as a societal and moral problem for not just the present, but future generations. 

DR.VEERABHADRAN RAMANATHAN
University of California, San Diego
"Between  Science, Religion, and Policy. It can have a huge transformative effect on the public...Why? Climate change has become a huge moral ethical issue. Or even political leaders don't have the authority to talk about moral ethical issues, but religion has”. 

Pope Francis calls on a unity of forces from both religious leaders and scientists alike to work in an effort to end environmental deterioration, as he continues to address these topics ranging from pollution to consumerism.
