Why act

Why as christians we should act on climate change

Below are some statements, press coverage, sermons and other contributions from the Archbishop of Canterbury and the lead bishop on the environment Nicholas Holtam Bishop of Salisbury.

'Responding to climate change is an essential part of our responsibility to safeguard God’s creation. Meanwhile, to love our neighbour — particularly, in this case, our neighbour whom we may never meet but who lives daily with the profound threat posed by this moral crisis — is at the core of what it is to follow Jesus Christ.' Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby
