Environmental Justice and Climate Change

During his papacy, Pope Benedict XVI was called ',the green pope' because of his ecological commitments in his writings, statements, and practical initiatives. Containing twelve essays by lay, ordained, and religious Catholic theologians and scholars, along with a presentation and a homily by bishops, Environmental Justice and Climate Change: Assessing Pope Benedict XVIs Ecological Vision for the Catholic Church in the United States explores four key areas in connection with Benedict XVI's teachings: human and natural ecology/human life and dignity, solidarity, justice, poverty and the common good, sacramentality of creation, and our Catholic faith in action. The product of mutual collaboration by bishops, scholars and staff, this anthology provides the most thorough treatment of Benedict XVI's contributions to ecological teaching and offers fruitful directions for advancing concern among Catholics in the United States about ongoing threats to the integrity of Earth.
