Vatican dicastery sets ‘moral threhold’ to limit global warming
May 24, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican’s dicastery for Integral Human Development has said that limiting global warming to 1.5º centigrade (per century) is a “critical physical threshold,” and a moral and religious threshold as well. Meeting that 1.5º figure, the dicastery says—in a statement timed for the anniversary of the papal encyclical Laudato Si’—is “the last chance to save all those countries and many millions of vulnerable people who live in coastal regions.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
