Create a climate for justice!

CAFOD's new Climate Justice campaign is about speaking out for people living in poverty, because the changing climate effects them the most.

Joining the Climate Justice campaign launch on 12 March were community leaders from Cambodia who help villagers effected by climate change, Ed Miliband (Secretary of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change) and lots of CAFOD supporters and climate activists.

Mr Miliband said: "We must all take responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint. Cutting emissions by 80% by 2050 will set us on the right path, and a global agreement in Copenhagen must be fair to this planet and to communities across the world."
