Rowan’s Carbon Codswallop

Filed under: Rowan Williams — David Jenkins @ 12:24 pm

Rowan Williams enlightens us on what is really important:

The Archbishop said that climate change was “probably” the most important issue the world is facing today and stressed that it was a matter of justice as well as caring for the environment.

He said: “As usual the poorest are likely to suffer the most though the richest have contributed most to pollute the atmosphere and accelerate global warming.

“So we can pray that a proper sense of responsibility (not least to the generations who will follow us) and of justice guides the hearts and the minds of the politicians who will meet in Copenhagen.”

The Archbishop urged Christians to get involved with events and campaigns taking place between now and December. He plans to be in Copenhagen to support last minute campaigns for a suitable deal to emerge from the talks.

Obviously no-one has told Rowan that the earth has been cooling since 1998, global warming is, at best, scientifically questionable and has made at least one rich person – Al Gore – richer.

I wait with anticipation the day when Rowan tells us that the most important issue[s] the world is facing today are sin, redemption, Jesus, heaven, hell and our choices on the aforementioned. It could be a long wait.

I wonder what the carbon footprint of hell is?
