This confusion is why Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew are spurring us to think deeply about what is truly good for humanity and how to attain it.In truth, according to Francis and Bartholomew, we need politics, economics and technology to serve a far greater purpose than power, wealth or economic growth. We need them to promote human well-being today and for future generations.The U.S. has vast power, wealth and growth, and yet diminished well-being.U.S. President Donald Trump and his minions work daily to undermine global agreements and domestic regulations that have been put in place to accelerate the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy.Scientists and engineers have given us the technical knowledge to move rapidly from fossil fuels to zero-carbon energy.Francis and Bartholomew urge us to find the phronesis, the practical wisdom, to redirect our politics and economies toward the common good.
