The Pope is in Washington DC: Climate Change on the Agenda
Today the Pope is visiting SolarTown's home city, Washington, DC and then will visit New York and Philadelphia. The city is abuzz with excitement and anticipation. Tthe buses are running the kids are going to school, but the major event is the Pope's visit. Climate change is on his agenda.
A major reason he is visiting Washington is to address a session of Congress to discuss the fight for climate change, a topic that former Popes have not touched on. The Pope believes that it is our responsibility to pass along a clean and safe planet to future generations. Frustration with the way humankind has treated the planet is what provoked the idea of an address to Congress, a branch of the government that is ideologically torn when it comes to issues of climate change.
