Climate talks in Durban, South Africa, entered their second week today, with negotiations producing little, to date.
Historically, more serious discussions materialize in the second week, but expectations around the world remain timid toward significant resolutions.
Among those attentively following the Durban climate talks is the Catholic Coalition on Climate Change. Launched in 2006, the Coalition works to share the U.S. bishops’ statement on climate change, through providing resources and through various partnerships.
Dan Misleh, executive director of the Coalition, spoke with NCR about the Durban climate conference, as well as the conference’s importance to the Catholic community.
