How about that Pope Fancis? He’s got open minded views on homosexuality and civil unions. He’s traveling around the world preaching for peace. Now he’s in the disaster laden Philippines telling 1.2 billion Catholics to take action on climate change. You go Pope.

Tacking along on the Pope’s tour is Naderev “Yeb” Sano who’s become a climate change superstar. He’s a diplomate from the Philippines and the lead negotiator for his country, to the United Nation’s climate summits. He made the news for his impassioned speeches and hunger strikes, directly linking the disastrous effects on the planet which have devastated his homeland.

Now he is leading a brigade of #ecobikers who are following the Pope’s visit to inspire local residents to keep it green and ride bikes.
