Climate Change demonstrators march in London, England.
What the Politicians and ‘Religicians’ Said:
“I think the people of the world, being outspoken as we’ve seen in the demonstration today… they’re propelling us as leaders to take the action that is necessary,” UK PM Golden Brown said.
“The scientific evidence is very clear, that there is a climate change problem we’ve got to address.” He added.
“All of the world now recognises this at a national government level and that’s why Copenhagen is going to be the coming-together of governments to make an international plan to deal with climate change.”
Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the leader of the world’s Anglicans, said: “We are part of a great interwoven system of life. Don’t please listen to those that say there is some kind of choice to be made between looking after human beings and looking after the Earth.”
The Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, the leader of England’s Catholics, added: “Only when we are prepared to change the way we live will politicians be able to achieve the change that we want to see. Live simply so others may simply live.”
According to our colleagues at EDRO climate change could directly affect about half the population in the UK in the next 3 to 5 years.
