World leaders are descending on New York this week for an upcoming climate summit at the United Nations.

At the same time, activists in Boston and cities around the world are planning a "climate strike" immediately before the summit to demand transformative action on climate change.

And the state's four Catholic bishops issued a pastoral letter Monday, calling on the faithful to address climate change.
