Religion and Climate Change

Climate change is often referred to as the great moral issue. So what does the church have to say about it? Despite what you may hear from the a certain Cardinal, the Catholic Church supports action on climate change (remember the Vatican's solar panels).

In fact, each of the faith groups here in Australia contributed to the document Common Belief. From Baptist to Buddhist; Anglican to Jewish; Muslim to Hindu; each faith group outlines why their faith means acting on climate change.

While the phrasing differs from group to group, each one supports acting on climate change - taking care of what we have, and protecting our fellow human beings who are vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
