The world’s leaders recently met in Glasgow, Scotland to discuss climate change and to reassess the agreements set out in the 2015 Paris climate Accord.  The meeting ended with the attendees agreeing to a new “pact” to continue addressing global climate changes.  Dr. Benjamin de Foy, Professor of Atmospheric Science at St. Louis University, joins the podcast to discuss what was accomplished in Glasgow and how the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount offer Catholics a Biblical lens through which to view this important issue.
