Caring for God’s Creation
The natural environment, which is God’s Creation, is facing many threats, including waste in the oceans, the extinction of many animals and plants, and above all the mounting crisis of climate change. Human beings have a hand in all these things. We need to change our ways in order to tackle them.
Climate change has never been more urgent. According to the UN’s latest report, human activities have ‘unequivocally’ caused the global heating which is driving climate change. 40 degree temperatures and destructive wild fires in London have literally brought this home to us. So the causes of global heating must be curbed, immediately, for the sake of all humanity and the whole of Nature.
Global heating is caused principally by greenhouse gas emissions from our buildings and our daily activities. That is why the Church of England and Diocese of London are working to reduce our emissions year on year, with the aim of cutting them to ‘net zero’ by 2030.
Like everyone, we are also concerned about the cost of living crisis and the cost of energy.
