Responding to climate change
As the scientific evidence grows, it is becoming clear that climate change represents one of the greatest challenges to humankind and the natural world as it currently exists. As well as ecological effects, climate change has profound social, political and economic consequences. The highest price will be paid by the poor. This set of six briefings has been produced to help Friends and others learn more about, reflect on and take action on climate change.
Each sheet provides information on a different aspect of climate change – from its causes, impacts and consequences to some of the proposed ways of managing it and the current international negotiations to do this. They also contain a number of reflection points designed to help Friends think about these issues in the light of Quaker testimony.
