The Vatican on Climate Change

The cost of action “pales in comparison to the price the world will pay if we fail to act now.”

“Posted: 11 May 2011 09:14 AM PDT 

We call 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. We appeal to all nations to develop and implement, without delay, effective and fair policies to reduce the causes and impacts of climate change on communities and ecosystems, including mountain glaciers and their watersheds, aware that we all live in the same home. By acting now, in the spirit of common but differentiated responsibility, we accept our duty to one another and to the stewardship of a planet blessed with the gift of life. We are committed to ensuring that all inhabitants of this planet receive their daily bread, fresh air to breathe and clean water to drink, as we are aware that, if we want justice and peace, we must protect the habitat that sustains us. The believers among us ask God to grant us this wish.” 

According to the AP; The Vatican has appointed a panel of scientists who has reiterated what climate change experts have been warning for years: the Earth is in crisis and urgent measures are necessary right now to stem the damage.
