A letter written by Pope Francis on climate change is likely to spark controversy on Tuesday.
The Pope is expected to make his first major public climate statement since becoming the leader of the Catholic Church in March.
The letter is likely expected to be widely condemned as a threat to the environment and could see the Pope facing censure from some corners.
Francis’ letter was written on Monday.
Francis is expected in a separate interview with Sky News in an interview scheduled for Sunday.
He will be addressing climate change and human rights issues in his first international interview since becoming Pope.
The Pope will also be taking questions from a group of journalists from the BBC World Service.
There are no indications he will make any direct statements on climate.
On Monday, Francis will be interviewed by BBC World service’s Newsnight on BBC World at 7pm.
It is likely the Pope will address climate change directly, but the interview will be accompanied by an extensive discussion of climate justice, poverty, human rights and inequality.
