Candidates approach environmental protection from widely varying viewpoints

October 7, 2020

Around the world, we are seeing the impact of climate change: frequent wildfires, rising lake levels, severe hurricanes, and more. A recent article in Crux, "Candidates approach environmental protection from widely varying viewpoints," discusses the changing environmental policies in the United States and what an ecological approach looks like through Catholic teaching. While some pointed to the potential benefits of these policy changes, Margie Pfeil, Ph.D., associate teaching professor of moral ethics and Christian theology, cautioned Catholics to view care of the Earth as a top priority. 

“Human survival is wrapped in the survival of the rest of creation,” Pfeil said. “This shouldn’t be a partisan issue at all. If we really say we are pro-life, it ought to mean care for all of creation as well. I don’t see how we get around that."
