ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A coalition of religious leaders in New Mexico is calling on residents to support Pope Francis’ recent plea for bold action to curb climate change.

The leaders are scheduled Tuesday to sign a letter supporting the papal document that argued climate change was a global problem with grave implications.

Last month, Francis called for a bold cultural revolution to correct the “structurally perverse” economic system of the rich exploiting the poor that is turning Earth into an “immense pile of filth.”

Francis will be making his first trip to the U.S. in September, starting in Washington, where he will meet with Obama and address a joint session of Congress.
