Regarding “There is no planet B,” Oct. 4, Page 28:

According to the Catholic Sentinel’s coverage of the Sept. 20 Portland climate strike march attended by many Catholic students, at least one student marcher carried a sign stating, “You’ll die of old age. I’ll die of climate change.”

Pope Francis’ “Laudato Si’” was not intended to scare children to death. The sign bearer would be well served by attending classes on the Ten Commandments and embracing “You shall not bear false witness.”
