Climate change is a moral issue

DESPITE criticism from some politicians, the reason that it is appropriate for Pope Francis to call for action on climate change is because it is a moral issue.

In his book, A Perfect Moral Storm: The Ethical Tragedy Of Climate Change, Stephen M Gardiner writes that, although climate change is usually discussed in scientific and economic terms, "the deepest challenge is ethical".
