Pope Francis will meet with some of the world's oil executives next week, likely to give them another moral nudge to clean up their act on global warming.The conference will be a follow-up to the pope's encyclical three years ago calling on people to save the planet from climate change and other environmental ills, Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed Friday.The pope himself will speak to the leaders on the second day of the summit, organized with the University of Notre Dame, Burke said.Gary Yohe, an economics and environment professor at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, said the executives might feel compelled to listen to the spiritual leader of nearly 1.3 billion Catholics.
