They asked him if he believes the Paris climate conference will produce a strong agreement for the future. POPE FRANCIS "I am not certain but what I can say is that it is either now or never. I think the first conference took place in Tokyo�little was achieved. Every year the problems get worse.� He also took questions about fundamentalism, war, and terrorism. The Pope suggested that religious leaders have an important role in helping foster international reconciliation. POPE FRANCIS "Fundamentalism is a disease that exists in all religions. In the Catholic Church we have some, many.� Once again, the Pope spoke about war. He denounced the arms trade, especially those who sell to terrorists.
