Pope Francis is to warn that global warming threatens the planet and declare a moral imperative to reduce fossil fuel consumption, Vatican sources said Tuesday.Francis will outline his views in the form of an encyclical, a statement of fundamental principles designed to guide Catholic teaching on a subject that is issued as a letter from the pope to bishops around the world.The Argentinian pontiff gave a taste of his views on the issue last month when he warned "the powerful of the earth" that they would answer to God if environmental damage undermined the drive to end global hunger.Perhaps anticipating fresh accusations that he is a "Marxist pope", Francis said Tuesday that raising the issue of poverty did not make you a communist.
