Episcopal Diocese of Western Mass among signers of letter to Obama on climate change

From Western Massachusetts-

The Social Justice Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts was among the signers to Dec. 1 letter delivered to President Barack Obama during his attendance at the current Climate Summit in Paris, according to a diocesan release.

Signed by more than 150 signatories, the letter praised Obama for his administration's rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline and for protecting lands in the Arctic, and asks that the U.S. continue on this path.

"The actions taken in the next decade will either avert the worst harms from climate disruption by limiting warming to below 1.5° Celsius or commit the world to unacceptable harms for billions of people," it states.
