The Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) has issued a brief statement welcoming the joint announcement by China and the US that they will formally commit to the Paris agreement on climate change.
“Ahead of the expected vote in the European Parliament in October, the Secretariat of COMECE welcomes the ratification by China and the United States of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change,” the statement began. “The ratification by these two states, given their economic weight and their environmental impact, represents a significant step in the right direction.”
