Re “Political Split Awaits a Pope Who Is Difficult to Pigeonhole” (news analysis, Sept. 21):
Pope Francis’ recent declaration on climate change has made me proud of the Catholic Church. By acknowledging and coming down on the right side of one of the most important moral issues in the world right now, he is bringing hope to millions of people.
I hope that his visit to the United States will inspire Congress to work across the aisle toward solutions to climate change, whether through a carbon tax or through other methods that will reduce our carbon footprint fast.
