America’s Michael J. O’Loughlin reports, “Gov. Jerry Brown led a delegation of California politicians and climate change activists to Rome this weekend, where he gave a keynote address during a Vatican-sponsored conference about threats facing the environment.” He adds, “The meeting, called ‘Health of People, Health of Planet and Our Responsibility: Climate Change, Air Pollution and Health,’ was sponsored by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which has in recent years sought to amplify warnings from Pope Francis found.” Brown, a Democrat and California’s longest serving governor, said, “The problem … is us.
