Regarding “There is no Planet B,” Oct. 4, Page 28 and subsequent reac-tions:

We ought not finding fault with and discourage young climate activists without contributing any solution to the issues they address.

I have firsthand experience of students who have marched recently. They are totally sincere in their concerns, and justifiably frustrated about the lack of action about climate change by us adults. 

It is true that Pope Francis did not write “Laudato Si’” to scare children to death. He wrote it for us to study, pray on, and implement. How many of us have done that? A papal encyclical is not a suggestion, but a definite call to action for the Catholic faithful.
