The much anticipated release of Pope Francis’s Encyclical on Climate Change was greeted with jubilation by environmentalists and social justice advocates around the world. In his 192-page message, Laudatu Si (“Praise Be”), the Pope links climate change to the over-arching theme of his papacy — fighting global inequality and poverty.

In the short time that he has been Pope, Francis has inspired millions — and not only Catholics.  Certainly his insistence that climate change is real, man-made and requires a massive response by individuals, corporations, and governments comes at a critical time. But can the Pope’s teaching and example really make a difference?  Will climate skeptics inside the Church and in the general public re-examine their views and perhaps even their conscience?

To help us understand the Pope’s message on climate change, as well as his larger impact, TTT is joined by:

Dr. Paul Wojda, associate professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas.

Matt Gladhue, organizer for ISAIAIH, a congregation-based social justice organization

Dr. David Pellow, sociologist and environmental justice scholar, recently with the Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of Minnesota
