Last Friday I participated in the Interfaith Climate Summit in the beautiful Swedish city of Uppsala. The Archbishop of Uppsala Anders Wejryd, had invited 30 distinguished persons from different faith traditions around the world to discuss climate change and to sign a manifesto with demands to political leaders for the UN negotiations on a new global climate agreement. The manifesto calls, among other things, for rapid and large emission cuts in the rich world, mitigation actions by developing countries and massive transfers and sharing of important technology.
Isn't that lovely?
Next week Margot will be asking the opinions of atmospheric scientists upon the meaning of transubstantiation.
Well, why not? It's as sensible as using the sky pilots to investigate climate science isn't it?
