"Honoring creation is another way to honor God who created all that is. If we value our relationship with God and God's creation, climate change must be for us a profoundly spiritual, ethical, and moral issue. The human contribution to climate change represents one of the clearest examples of how human activity is damaging God's creation. We need to recover spiritual values that respect God's creation.
"It is a moral issue because while the poor have contributed the least to climate change, they will suffer its worst consequences. Catholic Social teaching, based on biblical and Church teaching, call us to consider first how our actions affect poor and vulnerable people. We have a special obligation to respond to our brothers and sisters in need."
