The Pope Takes On Climate Change

Pope Francis released a scathing 184-page papal encyclical on the environment last week. He takes on the consumerism, apathy and irresponsible development that he says is responsible for the destruction of our planet, blaming everyone from politicians, corporate business leaders and everyday individuals for their part.

“Climate change is a global problem with grave implications: environmental, social, economic, political and for the distribution of goods,” he wrote. “It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.”

Francis called for swift action to be taken and hopes that the encyclical spurs that action warning of “unprecedented destruction of ecosystems, with serious consequences for all…” if we do not.

The Ultimate Undo Button

Ever send an email and immediately regret it? You don’t have to anymore. Google has unveiled an “undo send” feature. The only catch is that you only have 30 seconds to second guess yourself or find that embarrassing typo, so be prepared to think fast. To set it up, go into settings. Directly below your profile photo will be a drop-down menu for “undo send” and choose your cancellation (5, 10, 20 or 30 seconds). Then, breathe easy, because that extra “s: you added on to “as” can be erased.
