This year’s October 4 celebration of the feast of St. Francis will highlight the Pontifical Academy of Science’s Working Group (PAS) statement, “Fate of Mountain Glaciers in the Anthropocene.” In their declaration, the PAS calls on all people and nations to recognize the serious and potentially irreversible impacts of global warming caused by the anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, and by changes in forests, wetlands, grasslands, and other land uses.
