The Supreme Pontiff mentioned the environmental problems in Argentina, Paraguay and also in the United States.

Pope Francis on Sunday expressed his solidarity with the victims of the fires that occurred in Latin America, especially in Argentina and Paraguay, as well as in the United States.

“I want to express my closeness to the peoples affected by the fires that have devastated various regions of the world, as well as to the volunteers and firefighters who risk their lives to put out the flames,” he said towards the end of the Sunday Angelus prayer.

“I mean the western coast of the United States, as well as the central regions of South America … Paraguay … Argentina,” the Pope continued.

“Several fires are caused by continuous droughts, but there are also some man-made“, he denounced.

“May the Lord help those who suffer the consequences of these catastrophes and make us be attentive to the protection of creation”, concluded the Pope, taking up one of his favorite themes: that of the protection of the environment.

“The land must be worked, cured, cultivated and protected. We cannot continue to squeeze it like an orange,” he declared on Saturday night in a message published on the specialized conference platform TED.

From the map projected by NASA satellites an Argentina is seen in red. The different sources of fires extend from the Paraná Delta area – shared by the provinces of Buenos Aires, Santa Fe and Entre Ríos – to Córdoba and the North of Argentina.

Although the problem affects the entire continent, Argentina ranks as the second with the highest number of forest fires in the world, according to the Global Forest Monitoring of the US space agency.
