Rep. Scott Peters is part of a large California delegation at the Vatican climate conference that also includes Gov. Jerry Brown and Scripps Institution of Oceanography researcher V. Ramanathan.

Peters, D-San Diego, is encouraged that the Roman Catholic Church is speaking out about the impacts of climate change and to continue to press the moral responsibility of facing and dealing with climate change. Peters said California is a climate change leader.

“It is a bipartisan effort. It is an effort that understands economic opportunity is connected with this. And it is an effort that rejects the false choice between a clean environment and prosperous economy. In fact, we’re proving you can have both,” Peters said.

The congressman wants to let the conference know that there are members of Congress willing to deal with the issue, even though the president wants to move in the other direction.

The conference, titled “Health of People and Planet: Our Responsibility,” runs through Nov. 4.

  1. Joel Fago says:

    …another instance of the Vatican undermining pro-life.

  2. Warren Memlib says:

    “No Catholics [only pro-aborts] need apply!”

  3. “For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?” One soul in Heaven is worth more than the recourses of the entire planet yet the Vatican is more worried about saving the environment than saving souls.

  4. I’m so sick hearing about ‘climate change’ !!!!!!

    If we don’t have any people (as so many are being aborted) it just won’t matter,,,,,there won’t be any people around and ‘climate change’ won’t matter at all!!!!!! (also, personally I think the whole issue is a lot of bunk!!)

  5. If, as we advocate for life, we say to everybody “We won’t talk with you about anything unless you agree with us on abortion” we lose.
