(Undated) -- Two groups are trying to get Pope Francis to agree with a ban on fossil fuels. "The Guardian" reports GreenFaith and Australian Religious Response to Climate Change sent a letter to the Pope saying it was immoral to make money off fossil fuels. The groups believe Francis' influence can help "avert the worst of climate disruption." They hope ending the funding of fossil fuel companies will cause the "carbon bubble" to burst, even though it means "some sacrifice that gives it moral significance." Pope Francis hasn't responded.
