Can Catholics go greener?

I was pleased to read today of a new Catholic initiative on climate change, the Catholic Climate Covenant, which was introduced yesterday by Bishop William Skylstad of Spokane, Washington, according to a New York Times blog. Catholic insitutions--schools, hospitals, and parishes--together could make a big difference in our collective carbon footprint. The press conference focused especially on the effects of climate change on the poor of the developing world.
