WCC group commits to action on climate change

On December 10, the World Council of Churches’ Interfaith Liaison Com­mit­tee presented the UN’s climate change summit with a declaration of its commitment to climate justice.

The group wrote that, as people driven by faith and hope, they were compelled to contribute to a solution to the climate crisis.

“For decades, science has provided increasing evidence of how the earth is affected by human-induced climate change,” they wrote. “The response from those in power has been inadequate and slow. Action has been delayed even as the voice of warning has become stronger.”
