Comments: Faith leaders declaration on climate change

This is great, and I hope it's followed up by real action (eg. a reduction in the amount of international airline travel by church officials to discuss the issue of climate change!).

I think this is one of the greatest moral issues of our time, so I'm glad to see faith leaders coming together on this.

I don't recall if Thinking Anglicans posted the views of TEC's Presiding Bishop, ++Katharine Jefferts Schori on climate change. She is, after all, a scientist.

This wasn't her first statement on it, it just got more coverage recently, after a man started saying it...

The great ironies... I am now a papal dissenter!
PS I know its just his personal opinion on fossil fuels. I wish Pope Francis had made more of the danger of making the creation more important than the Creator.

I've now studied the Encyclical and its not that bad..the Pope is standing out against those environmentalist fundamentalists who want to restrict population and he wants a return to distinctive gender.
