CLIMATE CHANGE: Time To Act!

The Vatican’s Secretary of State has told delegates at the U.N. Climate Summit that climate change is caused by humans and that we all bear responsibility to protect and value creation.

Speaking at the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP-24) in Katowice, Poland, Cardinal Pietro Parolin said the international community also has a moral responsibility to address climate change. 

“The Holy See has often stressed that there is a moral imperative to act, for we all bear the responsibility to protect and to value creation for the good of this and future generations,” he said.
