Ahead of his departure to Paris to report on the UN Climate Summit, Pulitzer Center grantee Justin Catanoso speaks with Greensboro and Winston-Salem, N.C. Fox News affiliate WGHP's Neill McNeill about why this summit is different, and what exactly is at stake.

Catanoso's project, "Saving Eden: Francis Exerts His Moral Authority," has covered Pope Francis's encyclical on climate change, "Laudato Si," and its reception in the devoutly Catholic country of Peru. His reporting delves into the mixed reactions to the Pope's message among business leaders, ordinary workers, and government officials across the country.

Catanoso is director of journalism at Wake Forest University, one of the Pulitzer Center's Campus Consortium partners.
