USCCB welcomes House resolution on climate change

Two prelates who chair committees of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have welcomed a new House resolution on climate change.

The resolution, sponsored a group of Republican lawmakers, calls upon the House to “create and support economically viable, and broadly supported private and public solutions to study and address the causes and effects of measured changes to our global and regional climates.”

“The cosponsors of this resolution set a positive example for government leaders, heeding Pope Francis’ call in his encyclical Laudato Si’ to engage in positive dialogue to address what Pope Francis has called ‘one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day,’ climate change,” said Bishop Oscar Cantú of Las Cruces. “It is our hope that this modest first step opens the door to joining Democrat members of Congress who have been active in seeking conversation and solutions for the country and the world.”
