Trump's Climate Change

Home » News » Trump's Climate Change

Last week, President Trump isolated his Government from the rest of the world on climate change.  We should acknowledge that the Paris climate treaty came about as a result of the action of citizens and governments across the globe.  In December 2015, the UN Climate Chief, Christiana Figueres, was moved to tears when taking delivery of a faith-based petition; a collection of almost 1.8 million signatures from people of all faiths across the world.  The Paris agreement represents an expression of the demands of people from across the world to protect our precious global commons from unbridled capitalism. 
From the perspective of our churches, our care for God's creation and for future generations yet born, is part and parcel of discipleship.  We seek justice on the basis of equal rights and act in sympathy with millions who have already found their lives and food security blighted by the storms and droughts. Fortunately this cause is also passionately supported by many US citizens, faith groups and others in the US.  We must hope that they bring their nation back to a place of leadership at some point in the future.
