Pope Francis calls out climate change deniers.

FOX's Steve Rappoport has the story:

As the papal plane flew over Carribean islands pummeled by Hurricane Irma, Pope Francis didn't mince words when asked about climate change.

The pontiff telling critics, "those who deny this must go to the scientists and ask them. They speak very clearly."

Francis also saying individuals and politicians have a moral responsibility to reverse the effects of climate change. Earlier this year, President Trump decided to withdraw the United States from a global climate change agreement.
