United Church of Canada on Climate Change:
“Climate justice is one of the key ethical and moral challenges for our time. As people of faith, the United Church believes that we can’t apply a quick technological fix to climate change, but instead need to change how we live our lives on this fragile planet. The Earth can’t be seen only as a source of resource extraction and wealth generation, but as a community in which we live and move and have our being. We must work to repair the world—making a new global covenant—through personal life changes, spiritual renewal, and political action. This action needs to happen at all levels, with changes in all institutions and economies.”
