In response to the on-going moral and ethical challenges of climate change, both America Magazine and Commonweal Magazine featured climate change as the cover story in their respective current issues. In Climate for Change: What the Church Can Do About Global Warming, Xavier theology professor Elizabeth Groppe considers the moral dimensions of climate change and how the Catholic Church can serve as a catalyst for change which more fully cares for God’s Creation and the poor. As Groppe says, Our imperiled planet needs the distinctive paschal witness that the Catholic community can offer.
