CREEPING CLIMATE CHANGE

Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting some new friends from Washington Diocese , which is twinned with our Province of Southern Africa. We discussed how we can join hands in the battle against climate change. They reflected that there is still a lot of doubt in the US about the ‘reality’ of climate change. They are not affected by rising food prices because of food subsidies. How do Anglicans in countries affected by climate change share their stories with the countries who are producing the most carbon emissions? We live in an age of food price hikes, devastating weather events and global pollution. How do we make people realise that behind each of these are the slow-burning crises  ‘creeping and insidious climate change, growing inequality, chronic hunger and vulnerability, the erosion of our natural resources’. – See more at Oxfams report : http://www.oxfam.org/en/grow/reports/growing-better-future#sthash.FhfLQPvE.dpuf
