Effects of climate change
Climate change affects us all – but those hit first and hardest are people living in poverty. Already, 150,000 people die each year from the effects of climate change, almost all in developing countries. Nature 438, , 17 November 2005
Climate change is an issue of justice. While the rich world consumes far more of the Earth’s resources, poor communities bear the brunt of extreme weather.
Climate change threatens to reverse any progress towards ending poverty.
You are all one in Christ Jesus Galatians 3:28 Jesus commands us to love our neighbours Mark 12:31
Closing our eyes to our neighbours also blinds us from God. Pope Benedict XVI
