Acting on climate change is fundamentally a moral question; it’s about what’s right; it’s about our values

If acting to mitigate climate disruption is, indeed, a moral issue, where are the world’s religions on it? Sure, there are voices, there are movements, but I do not see pulpits sounding the alarm once per month or two months. That is what it deserves. Sure, there is the Pope. But is he just a fig leaf for the Catholic Church, or a principal actor? Catholics are not, apparently, paying attention, leaving their God in a hatbox until Sundays. What about the rest of the religions? Where are they in their indignation?

No, the true religion of the West is entitlement to comfort and ease.

Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom: pride, fulness of bread, and prosperous ease was in her and in her daughters; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. Ezekiel 16:49
