2015 SkS Weekly Digest #27

SkS Highlights

Pope Francis’ call for urgent action to combat climate change has generated unprcedented news coverage and discussion throughout the world over the past few weeks. It is therefore not surprising that the 2015 SkS News Bulletin #6: Pope Francis & Climate Change garnered the highest number of comments of the items posted on SkS during the past week.

Quote of the Week

"In Dante's Inferno, he describes the nine circles of Hell, each dedicated to different sorts of sinners, with the outermost being occupied by those who didn't know any better, and the innermost reserved for the most treacherous offenders. I wonder where in the nine circles Dante would place all of us who are borrowing against this Earth in the name of economic growth, accumulating an environmental debt by burning fossil fuels, the consequences of which will be left for our children and grandchildren to bear? Let's act now, to save the next generations from the consequences of the beyond-two-degree inferno."
