    VATICAN CALLS SUMMIT ON CLIMATE CHANGE

    Vatican Announces Major Summit On Climate Change

    Jack Jenkins, April 15, 2015 (ClimateProgress)

    “…[A] landmark climate change-themed conference to be hosted at the Vatican later this month [is] the latest in Pope Francis’ faith-rooted campaign to raise awareness about global warming…[E]ntitled Protect the Earth, Dignify Humanity. The Moral Dimensions of Climate Change and Sustainable Development, [the April 28 event] will draw together a combination of scientists, global faith leaders, and influential conservation advocates such as Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is slotted to offer the opening address, and organizers say the goal of the conference is to ‘build a consensus that the values of sustainable development cohere with values of the leading religious traditions, with a special focus on the most vulnerable.’ …The gathering will undoubtedly build momentum for the pope’s forthcoming encyclical on the environment, an influential papal document expected to be released in June or July. The Catholic Church has a long history of championing conservation and green initiatives, but Francis has made the climate change a fixture of his papacy…[He] told a crowd in Rome last May that mistreating the environment is a sin, insisting that believers ‘safeguard Creation … Because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us! Never forget this!’…” click here for more
