NEW YORK - Thousands of world leaders gathered in San Francisco last week for the Global Climate Action Summit to “Take Ambition to the Next Level” in fighting climate change, and in particular, to ensure the Paris Climate Agreement remains in effect.

Among those present was Dan Misleh, founding executive director of the Catholic Climate Covenant. He spoke with Crux about why he believes the Church’s ongoing leadership in caring for creation remains essential, even in the face of other looming crises.
