The Catholic Climate Covenant, an organization which the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops helped form in 2006, has urged President-elect Donald Trump to “demonstrate bold leadership in addressing the climate crisis by honoring the Paris Agreement, contributing to the Green Climate Fund, and implementing the Clean Power Plan.”
The Catholic Climate Covenant’s petition has been endorsed by over a
dozen other Catholic organizations, including the Jesuit Conference of
Canada and the United States, the Leadership Conference for Women
Religious, the Franciscan Action Network, the Sisters of Mercy, and
Catholics Confront Global Poverty, which is a joint initiative of the
bishops’ conference and Catholic Relief Services.
