'Support Paris Climate Change Agreement' Say World's Reformed Churches

                                                                                                                                  Wednesday July 5 2017

THE World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) has urged the world’s leading economies to maintain support for the Paris climate change agreement ahead of the G20 summit.

Meeting in Leipzig, Germany, the plea was made following the decision by US President Donald Trump to withdraw from the agreement and ahead of the G20 meeting which opens in Hamburg, Germany, on Friday.

Calling for action, Bruce Gillette of the Presbyterian Church (USA) said: “We’re all in this together…. The Paris climate change accord is significant for the life and justice of every person as well as God’s creation.”

The call to the G20 was part of a set of proposals on justice issues presented to the General Council of the WCRC, which opened on June 29 and meets until July 7. The G20 countries had the responsibility to ensure “life and justice” for every person in the world, the Council stated.
