Archbishop Justin Welby joins faith leaders calling for action on climate Change

The Archbishop of Canterbury has joined faith leaders in Britain pledging to fast and pray for the success of key international negotiations over climate change, in a new declaration warning of the “huge challenge” facing the world over global warming.

Representatives of the major faiths, including Archbishop Justin Welby, said climate change has already hit the poorest of the world hardest and urgent action is needed now to protect future generations.

In the Lambeth Declaration, which will be launched tomorrow, signatories call on faith communities to recognise the pressing need to make the transition to a low carbon economy.

The call comes ahead of the international climate change talks in Paris this December where negotiators from more than 190 nations will gather to discuss a new global agreement on climate change, aimed at limiting greenhouse gas emissions from 2020 when current commitments run out.

    Meanwhile, in the real world, The Pause continues, now approaching 20 years of disagreement between theory and reality. If you would like to see a good example of the politicized science being practiced, see the most recent NOAA paper which “explains” The Pause is just an artifact for bad data analysis. Even some of the Warmists are having a tough time keeping a straight face.
