  • Catholic social teaching now includes teaching on the environment.
  • Discussions about ecology can be grounded in the Bible and church tradition.
  • Everything is connected — including the economy.
  • Scientific research on the environment is to be praised and used.
  • Widespread indifference and selfishness worsen environmental problems.
  • Global dialogue and solidarity are needed.
  • A change of heart is required.

An Assembly to Action (A2A) newsletter has been prepared by the Climate Change Working Group on “Eating Choices & Climate Change.” It will be sent electronically this week. This could be used in parishes as a bulletin insert.
