We “failed to care for the earth,” and we have “sinned against the earth,” he asked, “And how does the earth react?”
“There is a Spanish saying that is very clear about this. It goes: ‘God always forgives; we humans sometimes forgive, and sometimes not; the earth never forgives,’” he warned. “The earth does not forgive: if we have despoiled the earth, its response will be very ugly.”
He said before that the virus is "nature's response" to our failure to address the "catastrophes" of climate change caused by humans.
Asked earlier this month whether the COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity for an “ecological conversion,” the pontiff reasserted his conviction that humanity has provoked nature by not responding adequately to the climate crisis.
“We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that a year and a half ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted? Who speaks now of the floods?” he questioned.
“I don’t know if it is nature’s revenge, but it is certainly nature’s response,” the pope added. “Fires, earthquakes … nature is throwing a tantrum so that we will take care of her."

I don't mean in a way like the Democrats claim nor do I think there is anything wrong with the electoral college. To the contrary, I believe that the electoral college is important and necessary, otherwise you basically have 2 cities deciding who will become president.
