Pope: Climate Change Harms Vulnerable

Here is the article, as it appeared in Monsters and Critics:
In a world whose resources should be universal, climate change tends to damage the weakest the most, Pope Benedict XVI told experts taking part in an international conference on the environment taking place at the Vatican on Thursday and Friday.
In a message to participants, the pontiff also said it was his hope that the conference would help promote lifestyles and modes of production that respect 'creation' and 'sustainable development,' in line with the teachings of the Church.
Some 80 experts from 20 countries were taking part in a conference on 'climate change and development' organized by the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
