The negotiations on climate change at the Cancun Summit ended Friday night, December 10th, with broad consensus acceptance of limited advances.  It sets the stage for the year-long work toward the next Climate Summit in South Africa near the end of 2011.  For a helpful report and analysis of the consensus agreements by Jesuits working on ecology, go to the new EcoJesuit Network website, Ecology and Jesuits in Communication.  It represents an important new involvement and commitment to ecological justice by the Society of Jesus.
