“Did you know…… the UN climate report, launched this week by the world’s leading climate experts, supports CAFOD’s experiences that the world’s poorest communities are being hardest hit by climate change? It says: global warming is happening here, now and affecting people on all continents. It is not a distant problem that will only affect generations to come in faraway places. We have the means to end poverty within our lifetimes, but not if we don’t tackle climate change by cutting our emissions and helping poor people to cope with its impacts.”
