President John J. Hurley was among the leaders of more than 150 Catholic colleges and universities, religious congregations, national organizations and health care providers to sign a climate change letter issued to the Trump Administration and Congress asking them to do the following:
- Support the Senate’s request to provide $10 million to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
- Participate meaningfully in the deliberations of the UNFCCC
- Honor our nation’s commitment to the Green Climate Fund.
In the letter, the Catholic leaders also affirm the Church’s longstanding commitment to care for creation and reiterate the U.S. bishops’ call to act upon the widely-accepted understanding of climate change science.
