As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change publishes its new report on economics and control of emissions, climate change activists say the UN Bangkok meeting is a step forward but not enough. Churches are taking up the cause.
The UK-based international development agency Christian Aid has warned governments world-wide, and especially the British government, that poor countries will be hit worst global warming and will struggle to adapt to the impact of climate change.
Scientists' grim predictions of an even worse rate of global warming means the world must act immediately to help poor people cope with the now inevitable ravages of climate change, says international development agency Chrsitian Aid.
The World Council of Churches (WCC) programme on climate change and water has welcomed a high-profile report released today by the United Nations climate panel. The WCC brings together mainline Protestant, Orthodox, Anglican and indigenous churches across the world, working closely with Roman Catholics and in exchange with Evangelicals and Pentecostals.
