COP23: Catholic Church calls for renewed push to inform public of climate threat

COP23: Catholic Church calls for renewed push to inform public of climate threat

The Vatican will today step up calls for world leaders to deliver on the goals of the Paris Agreement and better highlight the scale of the climate threat to the public, while aiming further thinly-veiled criticism at the Trump administration. In a new paper set for launch today on the sidelines of the COP23 summit - entitled Climate Action for the Common Good - the Church will highlight its concern that countries have not done enough to fulfil their responsibilities on public education and awareness around climate change, as recognised in Article 12 of the Paris Agreement.
