The International Conference “Saving our Common Home and the Future of Life on Earth”.

The Vatican, July 5th and 6th, 2018

Faith and Culture Correspondent for Crux, Claire Giangravè, writes on how President Donald Trump’s position on climate change was challenged at the Vatican environment summit.

 

“A little over a year since President Donald Trump announced that the United States would be withdrawing from the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement, attendees at a Vatican summit on the environment assessed whether the battle is lost as Pope Francis encouraged citizens to take matters in their own hands.

“We all know that much still needs to be done to implement that [Paris] Agreement,” the pope told participants of the International Conference “Saving our Common Home and the Future of Life on Earth” during an audience July 6.

“All governments should strive to honor the commitments made in Paris, in order to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis,” Francis said.”
