A papal statement on climate change could lead to greener Britain


A third of British Catholics say they would consider “greening” their lifestyles should Pope Francis make an official statement on climate change.

The pledge came from a recent poll of 1,000 Catholics in England and Wales conducted by YouGov and CAFOD, the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. The 33 percent who said they would opt for greener choices, such as recycling or driving less, would account for more than 1 million Catholics in Britain.
