Climate Change: What Does Pope Francis Have to Say? And Why Does It Matter?

On June 18, Pope Francis issued the encyclical (or “letter”) Laudato Si, in which he staked out his position on climate change and other environmental crises. On September 25, he will address the United Nations in New York on similar themes.

Come hear a Catholic theologian, an economic historian, a political scientist, and an expert in climate policy discuss what Pope Francis has been saying about climate change, and why so many people are listening–even if they don’t agree.

This event is co-sponsored by Religions and Public Life at the Kenan Institute for Ethics and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions.
