Climate change represents one of the principle challenges facing humanity in our day. The poor will be affected by this more than the rich. These changes adversely affect farming, fishing and forestry, the means of livelihood of most poor people on earth. The poor are forced to follow the migrations of animals (who cannot adapt to the changes in climate) and move as deserts expand. They must leave behind their homes and live with even greater insecurity. How can we indifferent to them?
Suggestion: Reflect on Pope Francis’ attitude to the migrants’ crisis. In what way, if any, can I respond to this crisis?
