Twin Cities Catholics Confront Global Warming

Religious groups have not been prominent in the struggle to take action against global warming but that is finally changing. More evidence of this shift comes from a report in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune which describes an effort being started by the Archdiocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul to find socially equitable solutions to global warming. Hopefully this type of effort will translate into a political shift that succeeds in electing a president in 2008 who is willing to lead an all-out effort to fight global warming. If the election results in a victory for someone like George W. Bush efforts around the world to keep atmospheric greenhouse gas levels from increasing to levels that will cause catastrophic climate change will be futile.
