The climate talks have just come to a close in Poland, where Msgr. Bruno- Marie Duffé, head of the Holy See delegation at COP24, said at an impromptu press conference Dec. 12: “We often say that the situation of our planet needs decisions for tomorrow,” “But tomorrow is today. Tomorrow is today.”

Also, it’s good to know that Wales is now on a path to a clean energy future. The Welsh government has made a historic announcement that fossil fuel extraction projects are incompatible with climate change targets. That means it will allow no new coal mines. And there won’t be petroleum extraction or fracking.
