Holy cow, the IPCC now wants churches to spread the global warming con!
By the blogowner, honestclimate, 28 September 2008
A few weeks ago, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said people should have one meat-free day to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Now, Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, the vice-chairperson of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has said churches can contribute to reducing the impact of global warming by proposing new lifestyles.
“The risks connected with climate change have dramatically increased since 2001. Nevertheless, there is no fatalistic view of the future,” said Professor Jean-Pascal van Ypersele of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
“There are ways to reduce emissions, and churches can contribute to solutions by proposing changes in lifestyle and behaviour patterns,” said Ypersele, a member of the institute of astronomy and geophysics at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium.
Ypersele was addressing the 24-28 September assembly of the European Christian Environmental Network, which gathers environmental activists and groups, and is linked to the Conference of European Churches.
