Pope and Climate Change (Letter to the Editor)

Reprinted from the San Diego Union Tribune (3-23-13)
POPE AND CLIMATE CHANGE

Pope Francis calls on people around the world to protect the poor and the environment. He will certainly be continuing the call by the Vatican in May 2011, through the report by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, called “Fate of Mountain Glaciers in the Anthropocene.” In their declaration, the working group for the report called, “on all people and nations to recognize the serious and potentially irreversible impacts of global warming caused by the anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, and by changes in forests, wetlands, grasslands, and other land uses.” May the new pope be a strong new voice to avert the worst of climate change, which will impact the poor the worst. – John H. Reaves, San Diego
