Bishops in Peru issue call to combat climate change

December 6, 2014

Catholic bishops from around the world issued an urgent call Saturday for greater action to combat global warming and reduce “climate injustice.”

Religious leaders of all faiths should work together “to work sustainable agreements to promote the care of our planet,” the clergy members said in a statement issued by the Episcopal Conference of Peru in Lima.

“Climate change creates poverty and leads to an increase in injustice.”
