Bishops’ commission welcomes EU ratification of climate-change treaty

“Now that the framework is set at the global level, COMECE considers it essential for national and local authorities to mobilize and coordinate themselves,” COMECE said in its statement. “The backbone of the implementation measures should be the search for common good in the long term.”
