VATICAN CITY. Industrialized nations must recognize their responsibility for the environmental crisis, shed their consumerism and embrace more sober lifestyles, Pope Benedict said yesterday.

The pope’s call for more environmental commitments came in his message for the Roman Catholic Church’s annual World Day of Peace.

“It is important to acknowledge that among the causes of the present ecological crisis is the historical responsibility of the industrialized countries,” he said in the message.
