Healthy Planet, Healthy People Petition

Healthy Planet, Healthy People Petition

Our common home and common family are suffering. The climate emergency is causing rising seas, a warmer planet, and more extreme weather. It’s devastating the lives of our poorest sisters and brothers.  At the same time, biologists estimate that we’re driving species to extinction at a rate of 100 to 1,000 times their usual rate. “We have no such right” (Laudato Si’ 33).

This November, at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), countries will announce their plans to meet the goals of the Paris agreement.

We have an opportunity like no other. It is our responsibility as Catholics to lift up the voices of the most vulnerable and advocate on their behalf. The Pope will be there. Let’s support Pope Francis’ plea. We must act now.
