Heed the pope’s call to tread more lightly upon the Earth by making your money fossil-free.
When Pope Francis unveiled his letter to the world about how we must stop trashing the planet, he nearly broke the Internet.
The pithy document included hundreds of zingers, including this line: “Whatever is fragile, like the environment, is defenseless before the interests of a deified market.”
In one sense, Francis is telling investors to stop worshiping money and start paying attention to how their actions can hurt the common good. In another, it’s Pope to Wall Street: Drop Dead.
So far, no widespread soul-searching is visibly underway among the pinstriped set.
