Climate change is moral crisis: CCC to Minister of the Environment

The Canadian Council of Churches has written to the newly appointed Minister of Environment, the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, in hopes of continuing dialogue on climate change we enjoyed with her predecessor, Minister Peter Kent.

The letter reasserts the CCC position that the climate crisis is a moral crisis: excessive self-interest, short-term thinking, destructive competition and greed have led to unsustainable patterns of production and consumption. It also articulates concern that our federal government’s current efforts to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions do not sufficiently address the true extent of the climatic crisis.
