Vatican newspaper: analysis of recent Muslim statement on climate change
September 30, 2015
L’Osservatore Romano has published an analysis of the Islamic Declaration on Global Climate Change, which was issued following a recent symposium in Turkey.
Father Damian Howard, an English Jesuit, compares the declaration with Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’ and writes that the declaration’s statement that “our planet has existed for billions of years” is noteworthy because this view is not universally accepted among Muslims.
