Planet of the Humans – The Problem with the Green Movement

May 11, 2020 by

by David Robertson, theweeflea: It was an astonishing report. One that causes you to stop, rewind and ask, “Is that really happening?” Back in September 2019, the BBC were reporting about the desperately poor quality of air in Delhi, India. Then in April this year, they reported that the skies were blue, the air was clean and even the Ganges was clear. Possibly the most astonishing thing was listening to people who had lived in Delhi for years and had never seen the Himalayas. Now they could....

CofE to be carbon-neutral by 2030 – but at what cost?

Feb 23, 2020 by

by Archishop Cranmer: No-one disputes the Christian imperative to care for the environment: the stewardship of creation is a matter of generational justice and moral responsibility.
