He's been the man since 1991, and there's a reason your Dragonmaster has long ranked His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
as one of my Unexpectedly Coolest People: He genuinely cares, as do I, about the future of Man on this Planet. He knows that Earth's resources are at considerable risk, which is why folks often call him the Green Patriarch. And like his North American/New York City-based amigo, Archbishop Demetrios,
Bartholomew can, at the blink of an eye, keep a grip on anything that goes on with the members of his flock. Indeed, a few weeks ago, Bartholomew decided to spend a few important moments with another of ol' Blackwolf's Unexpectedly Coolest People --- His Holiness, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia!
But sometimes, being the Green Patriarch can be tough, as Bartholomew told 60 Minutes
' Bob Simon last December 17th. Check out the historic interview
and accompanying video.
And do have a look at His All-Holiness' homepages to learn what else the Green Patriarch has been up to recently.
