“The Vatican and the UN Come Together:
Pope Francis on Climate Change”
Professor Emeritus, UNL English
North Central Regional Representative, UNA-USA
Pope Francis has surprised the world in many ways, and now is preparing an Encyclical urging it to take seriously the threat of Global Warming. How did the Roman Pope become an authority on climate science? and when did the Catholic Church become a defender of the Earth? The answer is to be found in the documents of Vatican II, where the Catholic Church allied itself with modern science and confirmed the United Nations recognition of human dignity as the starting point of policy.
Free and open to the public.
Lunch is Hy-Vee Pizza, salad and dessert: $7.00
Reservations are required.
