Climate change: causes and remedies

Power station

We’ve seen that the scientific data shows that the world’s climate and weather patterns are changing, and that this spells disaster for many people in the world, and will impact all of us.

To do something about it, we need to know the causes.

Most importantly, I’ll be looking at why it is important for christians to respond rightly to this issue, and what is making it difficult for us to do so.

Christians and climate change

Lately I have been pondering two facts:

  2. Christians are well represented among those who are unwilling to accept these conclusions.

Why is it so?
