C of E warns: there is 'no Plan(et) B'

from Parish Pump

The Church of England is continuing to voice its concern over climate change.
Following news that the summer of 2018 was the hottest on record in England, and the UK’s joint warmest overall, The Bishop of Salisbury, Nicholas Holtam, the Church of England's lead bishop for Environmental Affairs, said:
'It is becoming difficult for even the most resolute of deniers to ignore the devastating impact of climate change. While in the UK this has meant an uncomfortably warm summer, elsewhere people are already dying, crops are threatened, marine and land ecosystems are dying out and climate change is affecting everyone, no country is escaping unscathed.
 'We have a narrow window where it is not too late to do something about climate change, and to protect God’s creation for generations to come.  But we must act decisively, and act now, as individuals, communities, countries and as a global family. There is no Planet B.'
