2/CPO 28 – Pope Francis has published a new message on the climate crisis in the run-up to COP28 (Nov 30 to Dec 12), demanding that leaders at the talks commit to speed up the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. The message from the Pope, called Laudate Deum, also urges rich countries to agree how to provide financial support for countries that have suffered irreversible ‘loss and damage’ as a result of the climate crisis. The Pope is so determined to call for action at COP28 that he’s going to attend the talks himself. We’ve produced a summary of the Holy Father’s message and an easy way to share this with your MP in the run-up to the COP. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pwe_bd0TUjk
