“It is science, not the Church, which has alerted us to the dangers of climate change.

It is science, not the Church, which can tell us what needs to be done to avert catastrophe.

It is science, not the Church, which is in a position to work out what that means in terms of necessary changes to our individual lives.

It is science, not the Church, which can explain the consequences of not making those changes.

It is supposedly committed Christians, not scientists, who have been amongst the leaders of those who would deny that there is a problem.

It is church doctrine, not scientific advice, which tells people to 'go forth and multiply' without apparent consideration for the fact that the Earth's resources are finite.

Now, is the church part of the solution, or is it actually part of the problem?”
